Real Madrid unhappy with Ancelotti’s transition strategy, meeting planned
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 Merengues’ recent 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.

Real Madrid president dreaming of trident attack featuring €180 million-rated French starlet
Real Madrid have drawn a comprehensive roadmap for the upcoming summer transfer window and the club’s squad planning ahead of the new season, but as far as the club’s ambition is concerned, the objective is to sign Kylian Mbappe in 2024.
Real Madrid are expected to revolve everything around the idea of signing the PSG superstar next year, reports Alfredo Matilla and Sergio Santos.
As per the two Spanish journalists, Florentino Perez is envisioning a Real Madrid strikeforce comprising Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Mbappe.
The report points out that Real Madrid view the Frenchman as a realistic target as they expect him not to accept the option of extending his contract at PSG until 2025 next year. His fallout with the PSG has been already well-documented this year.
With Les Parisien seemingly failing to live up to Mbappe’s ambition, it could only be a matter of time before he opts to leave the club. To that end, Real Madrid will be prepared, especially at the end of next season.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are starting to lose hope of signing Erling Haaland, because of the striker’s excellent relationship with Pep Guardiola which could keep him at Man City beyond 2024. Mbappe, therefore, has emerged as the top target for Los Blancos.
The potential strikeforce comprising Vinicius, Rodrygo and Mbappe could see Real Madrid operating in a 4-3-3 formation, with Mbappe playing at the centre. It must be noted that the club are also involved in the pursuit of Kai Havertz.
The German could be an intriguing addition to this strikeforce – potentially making Real Madrid one of the most feared attacking sides in Europe. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Los Blancos can actually manage to pull the signing of Mbappe or Havertz in the near future.

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.
