Having phased out most of their veterans from the iconic three-peat era, Real Madrid now harbors an elite core of young players.

Key young talents such as Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde have risen to prominence, notably helping the team reach a Champions League final and triumph in La Liga this season.

But Real Madrid are not done yet and aspires to continue building a squad that combines youth with experience.

Wirtz on the agenda

After a dominant title victory with Bayer Leverkusen, Florian Wirtz’s stocks are higher than ever, considering his crucial role under Xabi Alonso.

His spectacular strides have earned him links with Real Madrid, as the club strongly contemplates signing him in the 2025 window.

Now, according to MARCA (h/t Madrid Xtra) Real Madrid intend to sign Florian Wirtz using the same procedure they used to sign Aurilien Tchouameni, Camavinga, and Jude Bellingham.

To guarantee a smooth transition into the squad, Real Madrid are implementing a thorough scouting process, while also building a close bond with the player and his representation.

Furthermore, the report states that Los Blancos have already established a close relationship with Wirtz and possesses ample time to secure his signature.

Real Madrid plan to sign him next year

It has been said that Real Madrid’s activity in this transfer window has largely already been pre-determined and thus a move for the 2025/2026 season is far more realistic.

The German has a contract running until 2027 with Bayer Leverkusen and thus his asking price is expected to be slightly lower too by next year.

In addition to eyeing Wirtz, though, Real Madrid continues to keenly watch Xabi Alonso, whom the club aspire to recruit someday down the line.

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.
