Real Madrid are gearing up for a busy transfer window ahead as Florentino Perez looks to significantly improve the squad ahead of the new season in an attempt to help the club retain its dominance over Spanish football.

A recent report from MARCA has offered an update on their transfer policy in the upcoming summer transfer window, outlining the potential targets and how the club plan to go about its business.

It appears Real Madrid are only planning to sign three players in the summer, with the club prioritising a move for a centre-back, a star striker and a left-back.

Antonio Rudiger has emerged as the likely arrival and having reportedly agreed personal terms with Los Blancos, the Chelsea defender could be officiated as a Real Madrid player shortly after the Champions League final.

In the attack, Kylian Mbappe has emerged as the obvious option. There has been some speculation lately, suggesting the Frenchmans’s desire to continue at PSG.

But Real Madrid remain confident of securing his services on a free transfer in the coming summer, although Mbappe is unlikely to make a decision on his future before the end of the season.

As for the left-back slot, it appears Carlo Ancelotti wants to sign a replacement for the ageing Marcelo, who will be allowed to leave Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.

The newly-crowned Spanish champions are primarily targeting a move for Fran Garcia. The 22-year-old currently plies his trade at Rayo Vallecano and could be an ideal alternative for Ferland Mendy at left-back next season.

Real Madrid were tipped to go after a new midfielder in the coming summer, with Aurelien Tchouameni emerging as the desired target.

But it appears Ancelotti is happy with the progress made by Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde while Dani Ceballos is another alternative to the three first-choice midfielders in Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

After escaping with a narrow 1-0 win against Union Berlin in the UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid face a tough task this weekend as they travel to the other side of the Spanish capital to face their old pals Atletico Madrid.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have put in several solid offensive performances through the season so far, but have found it difficult to finish chances, often relying on Jude Bellingham to rescue the game in the last moments.

Their task will be much tougher against an Atletico side that is winless in two games and looking to get back up on the curb.

On them, Ancelotti commented, “Tomorrow’s game is an important one. Atletico Madrid area a strong rival. We can’t wait to play.”

Injury updates: Vinicius, Guler, Bellingham

Vinicius Jr has missed the last three games due to injury, but will be evaluated today to decide his participation tomorrow.

“He will be in the squad for tomorrow’s game,” Ancelotti updated the press. “We will decide tomorrow if he starts or not.”

He also said, “Vinicius has 100% recovered. Zero risks. He would not be in the squad for the game tomorrow, otherwise. We will see tomorrow.”

“He has not played for weeks, so he obviously lacks rhythm.”

As far as Arda Guler is concerned, the Turkish midfielder is yet to make his debut for the club, but is expected to join team training as early as Monday.

“Arda will start training with the team on Monday.”

Jude Bellingham left Madrid training early yesterday, which sounded some alarm bells at the club. However, Ancelotti confirmed that he will be playing tomorrow, and that there was no reason to panic.

“Jude Bellingham will play tomorrow.”

“I would not cry if he did not play. We have other players [laughs],” he joked.

Kroos, Modric, and rotations

Real Madrid have a star-studded squad, which means legendary midfielders such as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are often left out of the starting lineup. The duo are reportedly unhappy with their role.

Ancelotti was asked about this, to which he replied, “It hurts to leave them on the bench. But only them, Valverde, Tchouameni, too. It’s always hard to leave a player on the bench.”

“They understand it because the competition is very high. I understand that a player comes out sad when he is substituted. But I do it to make the player more active.”

El Clasico vs Madrid Derby

Ancelotti was also asked to compare the Madrid derby to El Clasico, and which one he preferred more.

“There is no difference. We like to prepare for matches like these, to be champions, because there is a special tension. There is excitement and we want to win and be champions.”

“The Madrid derby is always a special game. A lot of quality between two rivals. Atletico played very well against Lazio,” he added.
