Despite the club’s shortcomings this season, Real Madrid have done a fantastic job as we approach the resumption of club football this weekend.

The club are in contention to win the league title this season, while they have done an excellent job in the UEFA Champions League as well.

Real Madrid’s success can be attributed to Carlo Ancelotti, who has adapted brilliantly to the squad, despite the club’s apprehension about signing new players.

This has led to renewed speculation of Ancelotti’s future at Santiago Bernabeu. Earlier this week, it was reported that Real Madrid even want to extend the Italian’s future, but it appears the coach is not happy with the terms.

It appears the Spanish giants are ready to hand the Italian a two-year contract. But as the club heavily prioritises titles, over anything else, they want a situation where they can easily terminate the coach’s contract.

As things stand, Real Madrid want to take a call on Ancelotti’s future when the season ends, meaning the coach’s future will depend on the titles won by the club this season.

This is a critical demand Real Madrid are making, especially if they do end up extending Ancelotti’s contract come May.

Ancelotti, for his part, has a proposal from the Brazilian national team pending, but he wants to stay at Santiago Bernabeu and continue his success in the Spanish capital.

All things considered, Ancelotti does indeed remain the favourite to take up the Real Madrid bench next season, even though coaches like Xabi Alonso and Zinedine Zidane are lined up as potential replacements.

It has been a special debut season for Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid.

Since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €103 million, plus add-ons, last summer, the 20-year-old sensation has become an instant hit at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Despite his form declining a bit in the second half of the season, Bellingham has racked up returns of 23 goals and 12 assists from 41 games in all competitions.

A special game for Bellingham

Having won La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup, Bellingham now has the chance to end the season in the most epic ways possible by lifting the UEFA Champions League, against his former club, in his homeland.

As such, Saturday’s UCL final at Wembley, against Dortmund, is set to be a special one for the young phenom, and he acknowledged as much during an interview today.

“It’s a very special game for me but I’ll have to put feelings aside. It’s been a great season, they’ve made me feel very welcome and I’ve enjoyed playing football with them,” said Bellingham, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

When asked if he had been in touch with any of his former Dortmund teammates ahead of Saturday’s showpiece event, Bellingham replied:

“I’ve spoken to Sancho, we said we’d meet there. He took me under his wing when I came to Dortmund and that meant a lot to me.”

On how Real Madrid can win the game

Earlier today, Carlo Ancelotti was asked if he had sought any information from Bellingham to prepare a strategy to beat Borussia Dortmund.

The midfielder himself was asked by the media as to how Real Madrid can get past his former club at Wembley this weekend, to which he replied:

“To win we will have to play at our maximum level, if we are at that level it is very difficult for our opponents. The staff are sure to do a great job analysing Dortmund, I trust them 100 per cent.”

Stressing how it is a dream for him to win the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid, Bellingham remarked:

“Winning the Champions League is the reason I’m here, I always dreamed of playing for this team, and this team is linked to the Champions League. I want to be a small part of their history.”
