According to a report from Defensa Central, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to promote Castilla player Mario Martin if Dani Ceballos leaves the team this summer.

Ceballos’ future at the club is currently a hot topic and If he does decide to leave, Ancelotti has already identified Martín as his replacement.

This news came amidst the announcement of Toni Kroos’s retirement that has sent shockwaves through Real Madrid. 

Now, it is suggested that Kroos’s retirement was expected to influence Ceballos’s future at the club. 

Initially, it seemed the former Arsenal midfielder would leave, and the club was even searching for a new team for him. However, with Kroos leaving, there could be a possibility that Ceballos could have a more significant role next season.

Despite this, Real Madrid are not ruling out any possibilities. They are already considering potential replacements for Ceballos and have focused on promoting Martin, who wants to fight for a place in the first team.

It is said that the club is very pleased with his performance and there is even a chance that he could receive a surprise promotion if both Kroos and Ceballos leave, though the club does not expect Ceballos to depart.

Promoting Martin, who has been a regular part of the first-team training sessions, would be a cost-effective solution, aligning with club president Florentino Perez’s goal of minimizing spending on the midfield this season. 

It is to be noted that Martin has even had some playing time with the first team in recent weeks, indicating the club’s growing trust in his abilities.

Despite Kroos’s retirement announcement, Real Madrid does not plan to enter the transfer market for a new midfielder. The club is confident in the abilities of their current six midfielders, including the continued presence of Ceballos.

However, if Ceballos decides to leave, Madrid will look to their Castilla team for a replacement, with Martin being the top candidate.

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.
