Real Madrid are a club always synonymous when it comes to Kylian Mbappe’s future. The reigning European champions were widely expected to sign the French forward in the summer, before the player made a surprising U-turn by extending his contract at PSG.

Mbappe signed a multimillion deal with PSG that not only increased his salary but also granted him additional privileges within the club’s hierarchy.

However, as we brace ourselves for the upcoming January transfer window, Mbappe’s relationship with the PSG board has deteriorated due to a series of reasons.

The player is reportedly demanding that he be made the leader of the club, which is a difficult proposition given the club also boast the services of Lionel Messi. The Argentine is even poised to sign a contract extension at PSG.

So naturally, it will not come as a surprise to see Mbappe entertain the idea of leaving Parc des Princes, perhaps in favour of a move to Real Madrid.

However, according to MARCA, the Whites have no intention of going back for the Frenchman and have made their mind up about Mbappe. They were dealt a massive blow in the summer when the player opted to remain at PSG, despite a great many efforts from the club.

The report suggests Real Madrid will not link themselves to Mbappe ever again. Should the player try to force his way out of PSG and join Los Blancos, the road will be blocked in front of him.

This is because the Spanish giants have set out a clear purpose as far as their transfer policy is concerned. They do not wish to disrupt the harmony of the squad by signing an expensive player like Mbappe.

Instead, Real Madrid are focusing on signing a young midfielder next summer, with Jude Bellingham emerging as one of the top targets.

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.
