Real Madrid’s humiliating 4-0 defeat in El Clasico left fans across the world fuming. The catastrophe was fulled by a combination of factors ranging from the manager to the players. Yet, the popular opinion is that Ancelotti was the primary party at fault for the loss.

The Italian manager’s tactics on the night were absurd. He opted to play Luka Modric as the most advanced central player on the night instead of choosing Luka Jovic or Mariano. Moreover, his decision of starting Nacho over David Abala at left-back to take on Ousmane Dembele did not go down well either.

After the defeat at the Bernabeu, several fans have come out and asked for the resignation of Carlo Ancelotti. According to reports from Fichajes, the chosen candidate by the fans is said to be Xabi Alonso.

The club legend began his managerial career at the Real Madrid U14 setup in 2018. Alonso was then appointed the manager of Segunda B team Real Sociedad B in 2019 and secured promotion to the second division in 2021.

His contract at the Basque side ends on June 30th, and Real Madrid could well be the next team he manages. With over four years of experience under his belt, one would assume he is ready for the big step.

At Los Blancos‘ offices, the move is seen as one similar to Barcelona’s decision to appoint Xavi Hernandez. The arrival of a club legend as the manager lifted the spirit and performance of the Blaugrana team this season. Xabi Alonso could be the ‘Xavi’ Real Madrid need to oversee their long-term rebuild.

Marco Asensio is among the players who are facing an uncertain future at Real Madrid as we approach the second half of the campaign.

The attacker’s current deal at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season. And despite showing glimpses of his potential during the course of this campaign, his continuity in the Spanish capital is far from guaranteed.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has urged the club to push for an operation to sign Asensio at the end of the season.

The Spanish tactician has identified Asensio as an ideal candidate to reinforce his ranks in the attacking unit. The Real Madrid star, after all, brings in a wealth of experience, having featured in over 260 competitive matches for Los Blancos.

The forward’s tally of 53 goals and 29 assists is not bad by any means either. And given his versatility in the final third of the pitch, he could be a useful addition for Arsenal in the coming season.

But the Real Madrid camp will not too keen on offloading their star player. The club have been impressed by the attacker’s performance, which could potentially lead to a renewal offer later this year.

However, it must be noted that Real Madrid are yet to table any official offer for the attacker. In fact, it is Arsenal who have started laying the groundwork and are expected to meet the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, in London to discuss a potential move to Emirates Stadium.

It appears Liverpool are in the mix as well, though Arsenal remain the favourite due to the presence of Mikel Arteta. Barcelona, too, had showcased interest in signing Asensio in the summer, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Spaniard in the coming months.
