Real Madrid have been a team in transition for a while years now. The baton from Los Blancos’ golden triple UCL winning team is slowly being passed to younger faces, and now just a handful of the veterans remain.

Yet, it is safe to say that the veteran stars who are still at the club are arguably the most indispensable. Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, and Toni Kroos have been the heart and soul of the Merengues’ setup for years now, and replacing them will be a steep task.

The responsibility of overseeing the club’s transition period was handed to Carlo Ancelotti with complete faith in his ability and judgement. However, Carlos Carpio via Blanca Remontada reports that the confidence is now dwindling.

According to the Spanish journalist, Real Madrid are not convinced with the transition from veterans to youngsters that the Italian manager is making. Talks will be held soon between Ancelotti and Real Madrid CEO Jose Angel Sanchez to discuss the same.

During the Merenguesrecent embarrassment in the UEFA Champions League, it was clear rather quickly that Modric and Benzema were being outrun, and Ancelotti could do nothing but helplessly stare from the sidelines.

The signing of Jude Bellingham will go a long way in solving problems on that front. Yet, the Italian coach has never been a manager to nurture many talents and the board’s doubts are warranted.

The latest development is not expected to put Ancelotti’s job under threat but could have implications on other fronts.

For starters, the administration see an urgent need for squad changes to prevent such a situation from relapsing. Thus, the renewed focus on transition could alter their strategy on the transfer market front. Further, one can expect a stern order from the board to Ancelotti asking for more emphasis on the academy and the younger stars.

    There is a need to question about his approach of the defeat more especially taking into consideration the confidence of other players and their respective position(Camavinga does well than Toni kross in central,Veterans have aged their speedy legs are now over due.These veterans played without rest and for the past 3 seasons we never had substitutes to rest them.His(experiments in the league cost us even league title changing players instead of at least trying them at other cups not league.Come back to the devastating midweek tragedy.The Pep’s new system called up for a different approach,it is very clear in black and white if you see such approach you must have a flexibility of advancing.Pep started ths system February if I m not mistaken but why would our manager look forward a step ahead.tactical we won the last year semi final by individual brilliance strength of each player and the winning atmosphere that was Godly.We need a manager because Pep has set something unique now without matching him or been forward to such system he will catch up our record and he will be unstoppable.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
