Real Madrid’s summer transfer window can be described as a decisive triumph, with strategic recruitment and the considerable investment of Jude Bellingham already paying dividends.
The Merengues‘ ability to offload surplus talents gracefully has also allowed them to maintain a dynamic squad, ensuring harmony within the ranks.
Now, MARCA have come out to report that the future plans are beginning to take shape.
The report states that Los Blancos are true to their pre-established project and will not jeopardize their finances or endanger their future plans for football’s two biggest stars: Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
Real Madrid will not compromise their stability
Haaland and Mbappe have dominated the football market in recent years. And links with Real Madrid have undeniably been a recurring theme.
While the Royal Whites will proceed to pay attention to their situations and any potential opportunities, as the recently concluded market has shown, they will not act erratically.
Real Madrid have always displayed appreciation for the best players in the world, but they will not shift all their resources toward the pair.
It is reported that they will be content with the acquisition of either one of the players or neither of them. Achieving both signings at the cost of the club’s stability is not being considered by any means.
With the ascendancy of young players like Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Bellingham and the impending arrival of Endrick from Brazil, Real Madrid are not overly worried about their long-term aspirations.
Mbappe and Haaland’s situation
After Mbappe essentially spent the better part of the summer transfer window with one foot out of the PSG camp, rumours of Real Madrid finally getting their man appeared probable.
However, despite the World Cup winner pledging his future to PSG for one more year, Madrid do not harbour bad blood and continue to aim for his arrival on a free transfer next summer.
Meanwhile, Haaland also has the option to leave on favourable terms with an easy way out if need be, just as he did at Borussia Dortmund.
The Norwegian striker, who Real Madrid could move for in case Mbappe does not arrive, will carry out an exit option if he is uncomfortable and looking for a change in scenery, which City hope does not happen any time soon.
Real Madrid, however, are not going to wait; they will do whatever suits them best, with or without the two stars.
Real Madrid retain total confidence in Carlo Ancelotti despite derby disaster – report
Sunday night was a disappointing one for Real Madrid as they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Atletico Madrid in the Madrid derby at the Civitas Metropolitano.
The Merengues suffered their first defeat of the 2023/24 season as former striker Alvaro Morata scored a brace for the Rojiblancos while Antoine Griezmann was also on target.
Real Madrid might be feeling aggrieved by some of the calls made by the referee on the night but they were just not good enough to secure all three points at the Metropolitano.
Real Madrid retain full confidence in Ancelotti
Despite the disappointing performance and outcome, Real Madrid retain their full and total confidence in manager Carlo Ancelotti, reports Jose Felix Diaz (via RM4Arab).
There had been question marks about the team selection made by the manager for the derby against Atletico Madrid.
After all, the Italian opted to bench Joselu from the starting XI to bring in Luka Modric and shift the tactics.
Aurelien Tchouameni was also left out despite being one of the team’s strongest performers this season with Toni Kroos being preferred.
The Real Madrid hierarchy wishes for the manager to trust the next-gen midfield for the big games but Ancelotti’s selection indicated that he is still not ready to do so.
Despite there being some differences, the board retains full confidence in Ancelotti.
Ancelotti accepts blame for defeat
It was a disappointing performance from Real Madrid in their biggest test of the 2023/24 season so far and speaking after the match, manager Ancelotti accepted the blame for the outcome.
“Maybe I could have done it better. It’s pretty clear. When the team doesn’t do what it has to do, it’s my responsibility. It’s my fault,” Ancelotti said.
With the game done and dusted, Real Madrid now turn their focus towards producing a strong comeback when they face Las Palmas later this week.
