“We are not contemplating signing another central defender”

He Real Madrid will not reinforce its defense in the winter market, despite the long-term absences of the central defenders Eder Militao y David Alaba due to his serious knee injuries. This has been confirmed by the Italian coach Carlo Ancelottiin the preview of the EA Sports LaLiga match that the whites will play this Wednesday, January 3 against Mallorca at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium (7:15 p.m.), in the first match of the year 2024.

“At this moment we are not contemplating signing another central defender because we think that We are missing two very important centers but we have two others in whom we trust a lot as they are Nacho and Rüdigerplus others who can do it well in an emergency, such as Tchouaméni and Carvajal. At this moment we are not considering signing a centre-back,” Ancelotti said at a press conference.

The injuries to the cruciate knee ligament of the two centre-backs who started as starters at the beginning of the season do not cause Real Madrid to change their philosophy of not signing in the winter.

We are not going to sign“Ancelotti insisted in a second response, definitively closing the possibility of reinforcing the team in winter after the center-back study carried out by the club and ruling out the option of bringing in any of its players on loan.

In the first game of 2024, the Italian coach will already suffer the inconvenience of having only two center backs available in the first team. The sanction of Nacho Fernández will cause Aurélien Tchoauméni abandon the midfield position to have to play in the center of the defense.
