Real Madrid is known for having a star-studded squad over the years and this season is not an exception despite the exit of Marcelo, Isco and Gareth Bale this summer the team remain almost the same.
Real Madrid signed two players this summer to strengthen the team this season, Los Blancos signed Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea and Aurelien Tchoumeni.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear to his players that he doesn’t need new arrivals and he made it known to them that they are needed for the season.
The two players that have further dropped in the pecking order are Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos and both understand the situation at the club and they are not guaranteed much playing time as reported in AS.
Ancelotti told the players that want all the players to stay but if the players themselves will push for a move, no one will stand in their way.
“At this moment in time they’re both still here and working well,” Ancelotti was quoted as saying.
“But, if something changes in their heads, we’ll adapt.
“We have a deep squad, we want to give all players minutes and we have a World Cup in the middle. So, we’ll rotate more than last season,” he added.
It must be noted that both Ceballos and Asensio are liked by Ancelotti, but it’s just that the order of preference for the Italian is different.
Ceballos was wonderful during the club’s pre-season games but the signing of the French midfielder will definitely limit his game time.
For Asensio, the form of Rodrygo Goes has affected his gameplay and could see his minutes extremely limited with Federico Valverde in charge of the right wing.
The transfer window is still open and players could still make move to join other clubs before it closes.
