With just a few days remaining before the transfer market slams to a shut, Real Madrid appear to have completed their squad-building for the new season.

The Kylian Mbappe saga is seemingly over, leading many to believe that the club may not sign any other player this summer.

However, Real Madrid have received an unlikely chance to sign a French striker in the final days of the market, reports Defensa Central (h/t Fichajes).

Manchester United offer Martial to Real Madrid

The report from the Spanish outlets suggests Manchester United want to get rid of Martial, who has found himself in a sticky situation at Old Trafford.

The former AS Monaco has fallen behind in the pecking order and has no future in the team under Erik ten Hag.

In an attempt to get rid of Martial, Manchester United have offered the Frenchman to Real Madrid for a cut-price fee of €15 million.

This could prove to be a market opportunity for Los Blancos, considering the fact that Martial bags immense experience and could be an alternative for Joselu.

What should be Real Madrid’s play here?

Following the departure of Karim Benzema, Real Madrid have limited options in the goalscoring department.

The club’s problems were compounded by the recent injury of Vinicius Junior, though the knock is not believed to be serious.

Real Madrid do have Joselu as an option, but someone like Martial could offer more quality and tactical versatility in the final third.

Carlo Ancelotti will make the final call in this regard. Real Madrid have started the season well, but as mentioned earlier, they may require a new striker that can them through the campaign.

With Martial available for just €15 million, it will be interesting to see whether or not Los Blancos end up making use of the market opportunity.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
