“Madrid’s Next Season Already on the Mind, Tense Meeting Between Florentino and Ancelotti Scheduled”

Real Madrid, reeling from their agonizing Champions League semi-final defeat against Manchester City, are already planning for the 2023/24 season with an imminent meeting scheduled between Florentino Perez and Carlo Ancelotti. Amidst a hostile atmosphere at the club, Madrid has called time on their current season after being ruthlessly outshone by Pep Guardiola’s team (4-0) in a result regarded as one of the most shameful in their history.

Madrid is now eagerly looking to sign players for next season, with a gathering planned between Perez and Ancelotti set to discuss the club’s plan for the future. As Madrid aims to rebuild, they are keen to hear Ancelotti’s thoughts and concerns regarding potential signings.

According to the AS newspaper, Madrid is actively on the lookout to sign a goalkeeper, two full-backs (left and right), two midfielders, and a striker. The club is reportedly seeking a veteran goalkeeper in the mold of Dudek, with Lunin expected to leave as he is not playing and is eager to depart Madrid.

Madrid also wants to add explosive athleticism to their defense, with Chelsea’s Reece James and Bayern’s Alphonso Davies the most frequently mentioned names. In midfield, Bellingham is the preferred choice, with Madrid appearing confident of securing his signature.

Finally, Madrid is keen to add a top-class striker capable of scoring a minimum of 35 goals per season. The likes of Kolo Muani, Osimhen, Vlahovic, and Kane are on their radar. The club also faces some continuity concerns, with the future of Asensio, Nacho, and Ceballos up in the air. Meanwhile, the seasoned trio of Kroos, Modric, and Benzema will continue for another season, while Madrid wants Mariano, Mendy, and Hazard to leave, despite the latter’s resistance to depart.
