Carlo Ancelotti’s problems with Real Madrid chief scout

Carlo Ancelotti does not support the view of the Real Madrid scouting team led by Juni Calafat that the club’s main area to strengthen is the full-back area, according to Relevo.

Ancelotti has wanted to improve the club’s forward line since the summer. He sees it as an excuse not to spend money on new additions and to save to be able to face a multimillion-dollar operation for Jude Bellingham or Kylian Mbappé down the line. And perhaps that will be a signing that Ancelotti will not be able to coach or enjoy having in his side.

He feels that he only has 14 or 15 players in his squad that he can rely on. It is no coincidence that the coaching staff did not even consider pushing for Fran García to arrive in January, which is the decision that has been taken with the current Rayo Vallecano player so as not to lose the promising left-back and see him join Bayer Leverkusen. Madrid’s board had the final say. It wasn’t Ancelotti’s decision although he is reportedly happy to have the player on board.

For Ancelotti, the winter transfer window has been closed since it began. He doesn’t want anyone to be distracted with so much coming up, including the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey and Liverpool in the Champions League.
