Shirt swaps after a game are one of the common traditions in the world of football – a tradition that serves as a mark of respect for the opposition and a spirit of sportsmanship.

However, in a rather awkward turn of events, Rayo Vallecano goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski is planning to ask Carlo Ancelotti for his vest, instead of his shirt, shortly after tonight’s game against Real Madrid.

This has been reported by MARCA, who suggests that Dimitrievski holds Ancelotti in high esteem. He is a huge admirer of the Italian tactician for his style of coaching and the way he communicates with the players during a football match.

In order to remember him fondly, Dimitrievski will ask Ancelotti for the vest that he wears underneath his shirt, which had become a symbol of sorts for the Italian tactician.

This is not the first time Dimitrievski has shown enthusiasm for his opponent’s possession. In fact, the Macedonian is a proud athlete who is always up for a shirt swap with every other athlete he respects.

The Rayo Vallecano goalkeeper already has the shirt of the legendary Goran Pandev. He has also switched shirts with goalkeepers such as Thibaut Courtois, Manuel Neuer and Jan Oblak in the past.

The veteran shot-stopper wants to continue his haul, this time by earning the vest of none other than Carlo Ancelotti, as Rayo Vallecano lock horn with Real Madrid at Estadio de Vallecas.

It will be an important game for the Whites, who must win in order to maintain their slender lead over Barcelona at the top of the league table. One would expect Dimitrievski to play a vital role as Vallecano look to earn a valuable point at home.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
