Real Madrid have finished their business in the transfer market for the summer, according to manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Los Blancos have signed three players since the end of last season, bolstering their squad with James Rodriguez, the top scorer at the World Cup, Toni Kroos and Keylor Navas. The three players arrive at an already strong squad that won the 10th European Cup for the club in May as well as the Copa del Rey.
But despite the signings, many pundits have said Real are short of a striker, with Alvaro Morata’s departure to Juventus leaving a place to be filled. Real have been linked with a number of forwards over the summer, and speculation still persists surrounding Radamel Falcao, the former Atletico de Madrid man now at Monaco.
But Ancelotti told a press conference he is happy with the players he has available to him and doesn’t expect any more arrivals.
“It’s done. We’re not looking to make any more signings,” he stated.
As well as Morata, Diego Lopez and Jesus Fernandez left the club. And there is some doubt over the futures of Angel di Maria and Sami Khedira. Ancelotti was coy when asked about them.
“Nothing has changed. They’re Real Madrid players. I chose other players for the Supercopa de Europa,” the Italian said.
