With Kylian Mbappe set to arrive at Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, there is a lot of buzz and excitement surrounding the imminent transfer.

However, there are some who speculate that the Frenchman’s arrival could spark some sort of distortion in the dressing room and that Los Blancos might have to sell one of their current attacking superstars as a result.

It has led to rumours of interest in Rodrygo Goes from the Premier League, with top teams understood to be willing to pay the big bucks for him.

Now, more reports have emerged suggesting that Rodrygo’s fellow attacker, Vinicius Jr., is also being courted by elite clubs.

Chelsea, Liverpool, PSG eyeing Vinicius

Indeed, as per El Debate (h/t SPORT), Chelsea, Liverpool, and PSG have all set their sights on Vinicius Jr. and are prepared to spend big on his acquisition in the summer.

The aforementioned teams believe that Mbappe’s arrival could lead to a clash of egos in the dressing room and are prepared to capitalise by moving for the Brazilian superstar.

Furthermore, it is not lost on the suitors that the 23-year-old has suffered a plethora of racist abuse in La Liga over the past couple of years, while he does not get any protection from referees during games either.

As such, the two Premier League bigwigs and PSG would be prepared to offer Vinicius a way out by offering a mammoth €200 million fee for his services.

Real Madrid uninterested in sale

Despite the speculations over the future of Vinicius and Rodrygo, Real Madrid have no plans to sell either of them.

The Merengues’ financial situation is healthy enough to accommodate Mbappe without having to make any sales while there is confidence that the Frenchman’s arrival will not cause any problems in the locker room either.

Vinicius, for his part, has no intentions to leave the Santiago Bernabeu either and is prepared to continue fighting against the ill-treatment he has received from certain sections of opposition fans.

Furthermore, the Brazilian international feels protected by Real Madrid, who are sparing no effort in defending and supporting the player through the difficult situations he has been facing. So, an exit is out of question at this point.

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.
