Carlo Ancelotti has been tasked with the responsibility of rebuilding Real Madrid following Zinedine Zidane’s resignation. The Italian has returned for a second spell at the Spanish capital after a successful debut tenure- guiding Los Blancos to the Copa del Rey and winning the 10th Champions League title after 12 long years. Don Carlo set the foundation for success which then reached its pinnacle under Zidane’s first tenure.

Well, this time around, Carlo Ancelotti is more than likely to inherit a completely different squad from his first stint. Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Marcelo, and Isco, who were once core members of Carlo’s squad, are on the brink of a possible exit this summer. There will be changes to the squad with several players being sold to clear out the deadwood and balance the books while a few recruitments could also be on the cards to bolster the squad depth.

Let’s have a look at three possible transfer targets that Carlo Ancelotti might want at Real Madrid this summer transfer window.


Kylian Mbappe is the obvious first choice that any manager would want. The 22-year-old French international has only gotten better with time and has been phenomenal in the 2020-21 campaign- scoring 40+ goals in all competitions.

Real Madrid have lacked the aura of a goalscorer and a mentality monster in their frontline since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure. However, Mbappe is the one player in world football who could actually fill in the void of the Portuguese.

However, Carlo Ancelotti did make quite a statement in his first press conference when asked about signing a thorough goalscorer (Mbappe). The Italian’s primary objective is to first build an attacking system through which all forwards can contribute towards scoring goals and not just Karim Benzema. Ancelotti’s attempt at fixing the system looks promising, however, the signing of Mbappe will certainly make it a lot easier to score goals consistently.
