Carlo Ancelotti openly discussed his left-back crisis in his press conference earlier this week. The manager called for patience around Ferland Mendy and added that Fran Garcia’s arrival in the summer could ease matters.

“We have had a problem with Mendy’s injury. Trust in his return. Fran García, who has done well, is coming in. We have a good defence.”

Yet, one knows that Real Madrid is not a club that waits for anybody. Los Blancos barely have any margin for error year after year. Even a minor slip-up at the club is seen as a failure, and it is clear that Ancelotti does not have the time to hope for Mendy’s return to form.

The Merengues thus do not object to the French defender’s sale come June. However, the manager maintains that he needs a new signing if Mendy is sold, bringing Alphonso Davies into the scene.

Davies has been a pillar for Bayern Munich in recent years. The young left-back has all the qualities of an ideal full-back – pace, defensive awareness and skill to navigate the final third. Needless to say, the Canadian is one of Real Madrid’s targets who can be rightly called a ‘Galactico.’

Fabrizio Romano, however, reports that the deal is far from materialising. While Los Blancos have closely scouted the defender for a long time now, there have been no talks held.

Davies’ priority now is said to be to clarify the position of the Bayern Munich directors over his future. The 22-year-old has a contract until 2025 with the German club and will take a decision on his next step only after learning the club’s stance.

In 26 Bundesliga appearances this season, the youngster has scored one goal and provided four assists. Further, he averages 1.7 key passes per game and has created two big chances.

Ancelotti devises plan to prepare Real Madrid defensive ace for Bayern Munich clash

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
