Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti has recently been taking chance to shut down some of the rumors that have been spreading around concerning the future of some of his players.
Iker Casillas has been enduring a very rocky road with Real Madrid in these past few seasons as he was a benchwarmer for the majority of the time when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the club and reports started emerging that he was unhappy about the current situation with the possibility of him leaving the Santiago Bernabeu being a realistic one but it never happened as Iker Casillas remained being a player of Real Madrid.
The arrival of the new coach Carlo Ancelotti sparked life for Iker Casillas as he is the undisputed goal-keeper for Real Madrid. There have been rumors however of the Spanish club being interested in signing Manchester United’s David de Gea as he can replace the aging Casillas but according to Ancelotti that’s false.
Carlo Ancelotti said: “The discussion is closed. His future is here. He is part of the history of the club and in several years when he quits playing he will attend this forum along with other great ex-Real players to talk about all the European Cups he has won wearing this shirt.”
Another player that has been linked with Real Madrid is Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling as the 19 year old forward is luring the attention of top European clubs and one of those clubs was rumored to be Real Madrid but Ancelotti denied that Real Madrid has Sterling in their plans as the Italian manager is well-aware of the vast amount of talented played that he has at his disposal in Real Madrid and signing Raheem Sterling would be just too much.
“Sterling is a player of great quality, certainly one of the best in Europe. But we already have extraordinary talent here. To think of another striker for the Real Madrid attack is really extremely difficult. It’s clear that Sterling is not in our plans.” Ancelotti added on.
Ancelotti confessed and said that he is a fan of Sterling but the club is simply not interested in signing him anytime soon as they already have a lot of talented attacking players in the team.
