As we enter the final phase of the campaign, Real Madrid do not appear to have much faith in Carlo Ancelotti, following a turbulent season that has seen them taste defeat to Barcelona three times.

The reigning Spanish champions have also fallen behind in the race for the league title and are currently trailing Barcelona 1-0 in the Copa Del Rey semifinal.

These poor results have led to intense speculations over the future of Ancelotti, one that is quite synonymous with the Italian’s first spell at the club. As such, Real Madrid have started their search for a replacement.

The likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Marcelo Gallardo and Xabi Alonso are some of the names that have been linked with Real Madrid lately. Even youth team coach Raul Gonzalez is a viable option, even though he is trailing other candidates on the list.

According to TyC Sports, Real Madrid are not entirely sure about their managerial choice for the coming summer. Some people at the club want Raul to be manager, as he is well aware of the Real Madrid ecosystem.

But in light of his lack of experience in managing at top club, some understandably doubt his abilities. One of them could be club president Florentino Perez, who is favouring the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine tactician has remained a free agent since he departed from Paris Saint-Germain. He has turned down multiple offers from top clubs, presumably in his bid to join Real Madrid. Some even consider him as the frontrunner in the race to replace Ancelotti this summer.

But with a chunk of the season still left to be played, only time will tell what the future holds for Real Madrid’s managerial position next season. It is a developing situation that may radically change at any given point of the season.

Now that Nacho is ready to join Al Qadsiah, Real Madrid have decided to ramp up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro, reports Jose Felix Diaz via MARCA.

As reported before, Nacho has decided to end his career with the Spanish club as he has agreed to a two-year contract with Al Qadsiah in the Saudi Pro League. With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now have a spot open in their defence and are eager to fill it with Yoro.

It is important to note that Yoro has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. Paris Saint-Germain have been particularly active in trying to sign him, offering €60 million for the player. 

Although this offer is close to what Lille wants, Yoro isn’t interested in moving to PSG.

What Yoro is looking forward to is joining Real Madrid. While the player and Real Madrid have a verbal agreement, the deal with Lille still needs to be finalised soon.

What about the transfer fee?

Regarding the transfer fee, Real Madrid are hesitant to match PSG’s €60 million offer because Yoro has only one year left on his contract.

Initially, the club planned to wait until June 30 to begin serious negotiations. However, due to the increasing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, they might need to speed up the process.

With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now has the necessary room to strengthen their defence and Yoro fits the bill. 

Madrid already have Yoro in plans

It must be noted that the club’s management, in accordance with Carlo Ancelotti, is already planning next season’s lineup of centre-backs. 

They expect Rafa Marin to leave, so the defensive lineup for coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and possibly Yoro if they can complete the negotiations successfully.

Real Madrid are focusing on building a strong defence for the upcoming season. They see Yoro as a valuable addition and are working hard to secure his transfer. 

The next steps involve reaching an agreement with Lille and finalizing the transfer details as soon as possible.
