The humiliating defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League may have fueled speculations over the future of Carlo Ancelotti, with the CBF officials reportedly set to land in Madrid next week to hold talks with the Italian coach.

But that has not deterred the club from planning ahead for next season. The general consensus in the Real Madrid camp is that Ancelotti has the backing of Florentino Perez and may continue beyond the summer.

According to Melchor Ruiz, it appears Real Madrid are ready to back the veteran manager as well. The COPE journalist suggests the club may sign a maximum of three to four players in the coming summer, in their bid to strengthen the squad.

Real Madrid are already in advanced talks to sign Jude Bellingham. The Englishman is prepared to join Los Blancos ahead of the new season, though the club still have to reach an agreement with Borussia Dortmund over the transfer fees.

In addition to Bellingham, Real Madrid could end up signing up to three more players. Among them, they could target a striker, following the impending departure of Mariano Diaz, whose contract at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season.

The Spanish giants were recently linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe, but the move for the Frenchman might not be a possibility this summer. The same can be said for Erling Haaland, so the club may face a dilemma over the pursuit of a new striker.

Other than a striker and a midfielder, Real Madrid may target some defenders, especially a left-back, considering the uncertainty looming over the future of Ferland Mendy.

As per Melchor Ruiz, the Real Madrid board is planning to conduct a meeting within the coming days to discuss potential targets in the market this summer.

    You should have taken this decision of looking for players the end of last season but you failed to do it and other clubs did that in preparing to topple Real Madrid from its position and that happened.
    Do not put any blame on the coach Ancelotti because is you who did the mess and Florentino Perez has made me to believe he should be having some shares in Barcelona because he is the person responsible for everything that led to where Real Madrid is.

Real Madrid preparing €80 million bid for Premier League superstar

Real Madrid have two of the world’s brightest prospects on their wings. Vinicius Jr has already made his name as one of the generation’s best talents on the left wing while Rodrygo Goes is not far from doing the same on the other flank.

However, the duo no longer have a central striker to complement them for the season to come. With both Karim Benzema and Mariano Diaz no longer in the squad, there Merengues have no options left to fill the number nine vacancy.

Harry Kane has quickly emerged as Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti’s favourite option to fill the void. However, reports earlier in the week claimed that Tottenham Hotspurs manager Daniel Levy wished to keep the striker in London and even quoted a €115 million price tag.

According to reports from MARCA, Los Blancos are preparing an opening offer worth €80 million for the English striker. Needless to say, the bid is not too far off from the Premier League side’s asking price.

Negotiations are expected to progress swiftly in the coming week. Given that not too much separates the two parties, one can expect Florentino Perez to come up with creative ways to bridge the gap.

Despite the relatively steep price tag, Real Madrid are in an advantageous position for two reasons.

For starters, Kane wishes to represent the club’s crest and reports even claim it is the only team for which he would leave the Premier League. Secondly, Daniel Levy does not wish to sell the player to direct competition in the Premier League, indirectly favouring the Merengues.

The 29-year-old has been Tottenham’s centre-piece since 2013 and has racked up goals for fun year after year. In the recently concluded season of the Premier League, he scored 30 goals and provided three assists in 38 appearances in addition to creating 14 big chances.
