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.

‘We will see’ – PSG manager coy on Kylian Mbappe’s future

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
