Real Madrid are the champions of not only Spain, but Europe as a whole. Currently, they are the best club in the world and Carlo Ancelotti is certainly pleased with his squad, praising it as the "best squad" he's ever had the pleasure of working with. But with the summer transfer window fast approaching, how could the Italian improve his squad?

Liverpool plot transfer swap deal involving Real Madrid star player

Well, an impossible-to-reject opportunity may have presented itself to Carlo Ancelotti in the buildup to the window. According to a report from Nacional, Liverpool are contemplating a swap deal involving Trent Alexander-Arnold and Rodrygo. It is believed that Liverpool could take advantage of Rodrygo's uncertain future.

With Endick and Kylian Mbappe both arriving in the summer transfer window, this leaves the competition for places in the Real Madrid front-line HEATED. While Rodyrgo is more than capable of staking a claim for himself in the starting lineup, he might feel like his future is uncertain and with any dip in form, he is now replaceable.

There is no denying that Rodrygo is a world-class attacker. In fact, he was one of Real Madrid's most influential players during their 2023/24 treble-winning campaign. Therefore, it is needless to say that Carlo Ancelotti would prefer to keep him.

However, the potential arrival of Trent Alexander-Arnold is enough to tempt any manager, regardless of how packed their squad is. It makes sense that replacing an attacker with a defender is the best option for Real Madrid, when analysing the balance of squad at face-value.

The Englishman is known to be one of the best full-backs in the world and ageing at 25 years old, he is the logical long-term solution for Dani Carvajal's eventual departure.

It also works in Trent's favour that he can play in midfield, having had experience of playing there with Jurgen Klopp. Of course, he plays in a deep-lying midfielder role, which could be a pull factor for Carlo Ancelotti, as he aims to fill the impossible void left by Toni Kroos' replacement.

Alexander-Arnold has made quite the name for himself in the Premier League for his excellent range of passing. More often than not, he has been the creative hub for Liverpool and he could easily replicate this for Real Madrid, adding a new dimension to their build-up play.
