Ancelotti has a critical position and is ready for a big change

Ferland Mendy is the weakest link and Real Madrid will find a replacement for him in the summer.

Marca writes that Real refused to extend his contract, because it expires in 2025, and it is logical that the Frenchman is therefore not a priority. On the contrary, Mendy will be on the transfer list in the summer.

The Frenchman has been playing less well this season, he was not even called up to the WC, and in yesterday’s defeat by Villarreal he was directly responsible for Villarreal’s first goal.

Spanish sources claim that Mendy is certain to be sold and that Carlo Ancelotti will be looking for a new left-back in the summer.

Ancelotti tried to persuade Austrian Alaba to play more on the left side of the line, especially as Antonio Riediger shone in training after the World Cup, so he should have been paired with Milita.

However, Alaba told Ancelotti for the umpteenth time that he wants to play as a stopper, so yesterday Militao was the right back instead of the injured Carvajal, and the stoppers were Alaba and Riediger.

As Nacho Fernandez, who sometimes played left-back, is also expected to leave, there is no doubt that Real will invest in the most critical position.
