Carlo Ancelotti admits in the Italian press: he has ‘signed’ two players from Napoli

Carlo Ancelotti’s press conference before the match against Napoli has sparked a lot of interest: the Italian coach has left an important ‘message’.

Carlo Ancelotti is fully aware of the team that Real Madrid will face. The coach from Reggiolo knows that this is the most demanding match so far in the calendar, because the possibility of advancing to the round of 16 as group winners is at stake, and to progress further in their quest for a perfect first phase of the competition.

Precisely in the press conference before the clash at the Santiago Bernabéu, the Real Madrid coach has made it clear who the two great dangers of Napoli are. The first is Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, “formidable in one-on-one situations” according to the leader of the technical staff. The Georgian winger did not pose a great problem in the first leg of the group stage, but since then he has been regaining his form and is once again establishing himself as one of the great attackers in European football.

The other ‘threat’ that the Neapolitan team has is Víctor Osimhen: the Nigerian striker is a “very complete player, strong in the air and powerful in transitions,” in the words of Carlo Ancelotti. “We took him into account in the first leg and we will do so tomorrow.” The words of the Real Madrid coach are very clear: one must not be careless with both forwards.

Very attentive

It will be a special match on all levels. Especially because of the presence of the board of directors, led by Florentino Pérez, in the Santiago Bernabéu box: the president of Real Madrid will be able to personally assess the performance of these two attackers with the aim of a possible transfer during the next summer transfer window.

Both Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen have attracted the attention of several top European football teams, adding competition before Real Madrid decides to enter the bidding to sign one of these two Napoli forwards. Their performance against Carlo Ancelotti’s players will determine their inclusion in the list of potential signings at the Valdebebas offices.
