Real Madrid’s Ancelotti Remains Mum on Mbappe Amidst Preseason Victory

Real Madrid’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti, celebrated his team’s first victory of the new season in a friendly against Milan while trialing a new formation. However, the transfer drama surrounding Kylian Mbappe loomed large, with chants of ‘Mbappe’ echoing from the stands during the match.

In the post-match press conference, Ancelotti was asked about both the current star signing, Jude Bellingham, and the potential future addition, Kylian Mbappe.

Praising Bellingham’s impact, Ancelotti described him as a fantastic player and an essential addition to the squad. He highlighted Bellingham’s unique qualities as a complete midfielder with intense work rate and intelligent movement off the ball, adding a new dimension to the team’s extraordinary quality.

However, when the conversation shifted towards the Mbappe speculation, Ancelotti tactfully avoided providing any direct answers, opting to steer clear of the sensitive topic.

For Ancelotti, the questions regarding Mbappe’s potential transfer are likely to persist until the Frenchman makes a decision about his future. The ongoing transfer saga keeps fans and the media alike in suspense.

Notably, the new formation Ancelotti is trialing, with Bellingham in the number ten role, and Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes up front, offers flexibility if Mbappe were to join later in the transfer window. In theory, Mbappe could replace Rodrygo in the lineup. However, whether Ancelotti would consider dropping Rodrygo is another matter entirely, and the final shape of the squad would depend on Mbappe’s arrival and the manager’s strategic choices.

As the preseason continues and the transfer window remains open, Real Madrid and Ancelotti must navigate the uncertainty surrounding Mbappe while maintaining focus on fine-tuning their squad for the upcoming season.
