To take care of the economy, Real Madrid has been left without making big signings in the last transfer windows ... And now Ancelotti has a problem

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Real Madrid has a big 'advantage' regarding varied of the European clubs, between them the FC Barcelona, and is that it has not finished his last exercise with a negative economic balance but, instead, resulted with near gains to one million euros. From the offices of Santiago Bernabéu have taken care at all costs the arks of the club, opting by the sales of players 'unnecessary' or cessions, in addition to the discount of 10% of the wages of the footballers.

This has left him to the madridistas a 'break' financieror that avoids that the crisis by the pandemia of the coronavirus was so deep. However, no everything is positive. To reach this 'tranquility', the Madrid has been forced to remain without big signings and reinforcements in the last two windows of transfers (summer 2020 and winter 2021), whereas they have given exit to several footballers, leaving neglected, of some way, the sportive and competitive side of the club.

Already in the past season Zinedine Zidane suffered too much to take out to 'float' to his team, while the injuries or drops by Covid-19 punished it. The reason? The Madrid has a very short staff that hampers the rotation of players and this influences, without place to doubts, that are more liable to physical problems (Toni Kroos, for example, suffered in the last stretch of the 2020-2021). It is a reality that has not improved in this summer and that punishes to Carlo Ancelotti in the beginning of his second stage like madridista.

In this summer the Real Madrid only has fichado to David Praises like free agent from the Bayern Munich and are very few the possibilities that Florentino Pérez go out to the market to achieve to a new star for the team, with Kylian Mbappé to the 'wait' for recalar in Santiago Bernabéu. You report them they aim to that the maximum mandator does not have a route to be followed to concretise the traspaso of 'Donatello' and does not want to confront to the directors of the Parisian club.

In addition to the French forward, the Madrid does not contemplate more players in the short term, although they have sounded the names of Koundé, Goretzka, Camavinga and even Raheem Sterling, by what Ancelotti will have to resolve with what has, that is not a lot and neither very good. In the party in front of the Rangers, that finished with defeat 2-1, went the canteranos those who gave the face by the team, while the 'heavy weights' (Isco, Marcelo...) They signed a performance that left a lot that wish and that it is a 'warning' of what comes in the capital.

The age, another problem

Ancelotti Has inherited a staff in which his stars are the veterans. It is the case of Luka Modric (35), Marcelo (33), Karim Benzema (33) or Toni Kroos (31), in addition to all the players that are near to fulfil the 30 years. Although it is true that has young players and with a lot of talent, com Ferland Mendy or Fede Valverde, are many the 'X' that the Italian trainer will have to clear to achieve an alignment that combine youth and experience... And that it was effective.
