Ancelotti’s probable front three

Carlo Ancelotti was recently unveiled as the manager of Real Madrid, and the Italian will be expected to transform the squad ahead of the next season.

The Spanish giants failed to win a single trophy last year, and Ancelotti will be looking to win some silverware.

It will be interesting to see how the Italian sets up his side.

Ancelotti has recently revealed that he is likely to give chances to Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard to earn their place in the starting lineup, and it will be interesting to see if the two players can prove their worth.

Hazard’s time at Real Madrid has been plagued with injuries, and the Belgian could be a key player for the club if he manages to get over his injury problems.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale was a key player for Ancelotti before the Italian left Real Madrid, and the Welshman will be hoping to earn his starting berth back under the new manager next season.

An ideal front three for Real Madrid next season should comprise of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard.

On form, the three players could form a lethal attacking triumvirate, and it would contain goals, pace and flair.

Martin Odegaard future

Meanwhile, Martin Odegaard has returned to Real Madrid following an impressive loan spell with Arsenal, and the midfielder has revealed that the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti is a positive.

The 22-year-old will look to cement his place in the first-team squad under Ancelotti now, and it will be interesting to see if the Italian is willing to give him the required opportunities.

French international Raphael Varane has been linked with a move away from the club this summer, and Manchester United are thought to be keen on signing the World Cup winner.

The defender has just a year left on his current deal at Santiago Bernabeu, and reports claim that the Spanish club have now accepted that the centre back will leave this summer.

Apparently, the defender could be signed for a fee of around €35 million this summer, and it would represent a major bargain for the Premier League side.
