Having sealed their status as the champions of Spain, Real Madrid are now focused on the one final game of the season that lies ahead of them – the UEFA Champions League final.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are on a good run of form heading into the biggest game of the year. The goalless draw against Real Betis may not have been the best way to finish the league campaign, but the team’s tally of 95 points in La Liga speaks everything about their season.

With Kylian Mbappe set to arrive next month, moreover, the team for next season only looks more ruthless.

Ancelotti makes a big statement

Speaking to the media recently, the Real Madrid manager was asked to comment on Kylian Mbappe’s potential arrival this summer and what the Frenchman would bring to the table. He, however, politely declined and shifted the focus onto the players currently at the club.

“Kylian Mbappe? I’m only going to comment on my players as they’re very, very good. Vinicius is improving every day, Jude Bellingham immediately understood what it means to be at Real Madrid.”

The Italian tactician then made a massive revelation, declaring that he wished to retire at Real Madrid. While his statement may not indeed imply a departure after his current stint, it comes as a big surprise.

“I’m going to retire at Real Madrid, but first I want to win another Champions League.”

All eyes on Wembley

Real Madrid take part in the finale of the UEFA Champions League this Saturday in a mouth-watering clash against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

The 15th UCL title in the club’s history, thus, is no longer a distant dream. With the game being Toni Kroos’ final clash for the club, moreover, there will be extra motivation to go all the way this weekend.

Ancelotti’s dream of winning another UCL could thus be fulfilled in less than a week from now, and it remains to be seen if he makes any announcement about his managerial future after the finale.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
