Carlo Ancelotti handed five new year gifts by Madrid players




The Real Madrid season has been heavily marred by injuries, requiring Carlo Ancelotti to navigate a squad brimming with injuries. Despite the challenges, Ancelotti commended the resilience of his players, emphasizing the squad’s strength even in adversity.

As the team stands as LaLiga leaders with a perfect Champions League record, Ancelotti’s unwavering faith in the squad has been instrumental in their success.

With the uncertainties that the winter transfer market always brings to Real Madrid, Ancelotti now has the chance to unwrap up to five gifts before the team travels to Riyadh for the Spanish Supercup.

Barring Courtois and Militao, who might return for the crucial phase of the season, and David Alaba, eyeing a comeback in the 2024 preseason, the rest of the injured players are set to be available for Ancelotti in the early weeks of 2024.

This news provides a positive start to the new year, filled with hope and optimism. The return of Camavinga, Güler, Mendy, Carvajal, and Vinicius serves as Ancelotti’s winter signings, offering a welcome boost as the team prepares for the upcoming challenges, including the crucial January 10th semifinal against Atlético Madrid, where the first title of the season will be at stake for the four Spanish teams (Barcelona, Osasuna, Real Madrid, and Atlético).

Key Components in the Scheme:

  1. Dani Carvajal: The Spanish full-back, recovering from a soleus muscle injury, is set to return on January 3rd. His presence will be crucial as he gears up for the adventure of the Supercopa.
  2. Arda Güler: The much-anticipated Christmas gift for Madridismo, Arda Güler, is nearing his debut with Real Madrid. The club emphasizes the importance of ensuring the player’s complete recovery before Ancelotti decides to give him his first opportunity.
  3. Vinicius and Camavinga: Both players, strategically managed in their recoveries, utilized the facilities of MLS team Los Angeles Galaxy to stay in shape. Vinicius will get minutes in the league match against Mallorca, while Camavinga will join the squad heading to Riyadh for the Supercopa.
  4. Ferland Mendy: The French full-back, recovering from a muscular injury suffered against Villarreal, is on track to return for the Supercopa, adhering to the timelines set by the medical staff at Real Madrid.

Ancelotti’s ability to integrate these returning players effectively will be crucial in sustaining Real Madrid’s momentum and aspirations for success in 2024.
