Real Madrid boast one of the most top-notch midfield departments in football.

Even though Toni Kroos will bid goodbye at the end of the season, Los Blancos still have another world-class veteran in Luka Modric while bonafide stars like Jude Bellingham, Federico Valverde, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Eduardo Camavinga.

But the Merengues are always on the lookout to further improve their roster and a new midfielder is expected to be on the agenda for 2025.

Florian Wirtz has been touted as a possible target, but his compatriot and Bayern Munich sensation Jamal Musiala is also being tracked.

Musiala wants Real Madrid

Now, journalist Carlos Carpio (via Ruben Martin Twitch) reports that Musiala himself desires to play for Real Madrid.

As per the update, the idea of playing for a club like Real Madrid, with its great history, appeals to the German international more than a club like Manchester City.

As has been already reported, both Real Madrid and Manchester City are great admirers of Musiala and are keeping tabs on him with an eye on the future.

The 21-year-old has been directly involved in 20 goals for Bayern Munich this season, standing out as a positive in a disappointing campaign.

Musiala’s current contract at Bayern Munich expires in 2026, meaning he could be available for a more affordable price next year provided he does not sign a new deal.

Considering that Real Madrid are also tracking Wirtz, it will be interesting to see whether they go after him or Musiala come summer of 2025.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
