Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has entered for the first time that the club may try and sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba in the summer. The former Manchester United man has been one of the most sought-after players in Europe over the last few years.
There has been widespread speculation that Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas will leave the club at the end of the season after losing his first-team spot to Diego Lopez. The Spaniard lost his place when the club was under Jose Mourinho’s management.
He was expected to get back into the first team after the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti, but that has not happened. The Italian has been only using the goalkeeper in European matches. As result, he is in danger of losing his Spain national team place. Lopez has been used as the goalkeeper for league matches.
Xabi Alonso was rumored to be a high profile target of many top European clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United. Jose Mourinho has already worked with the Spanish midfielder and it was believed that the Portuguese was interested in working once more with Alonso.
Manchester United on the other hand have been going through an underperforming campaign and one of the areas that needs most improvements is in the midfield which is why Alonso would have been a great option for Moyes to try and sign.
Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti is not looking for any trade with Italians. He has already rejected any probability of a swap contract with Italian giants Juventus that would have seen Xabi Alonso going to Turin while Andrea Pirlo coming to Real Madrid.
Earlier there were some speculation regarding the future of both footballers and it intensified recently as both players are near the end of their contract with their respective teams. Ancelotti has earlier worked with both Andrea Pirlo and Xabi Alonso when they were all in AC Milan.
After the sale of German playmaker Mesut Ozil, Real Madrid have come in for a lot of criticism from various quarters. The 24-year-old midfielder was one of the best players of the Madrid team, but he was sold by the club in order to raise the money to bring in Gareth Bale.
The Wales international has cost the Spanish club £ 86 million in transfer fees. Ozil has been one of the best playmakers in the world over the last five years. He has been a major reason behind Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the goals that he has done since moving to Madrid in 2009.
Former and current Real Madrid managers José Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti has said that star attacker Cristiano Ronaldo is unlikely to leave Real Madrid to Manchester United. There have been constant speculation linking Ronaldo with a return to Manchester United over the last 12 months after the star stated that he was unhappy at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has once again praised Real Madrid manager José Mourinho, who is widely expected to return to the club for a second spell in the summer, as the best manager he has ever seen in his career.
Lampard is especially close with Mourinho, and he acknowledges that it was the Portuguese who made him into one of the best midfielders in the world. Lampard recently ended speculation about his future by signing a one-year contract with the club. According to Lampard, Mourinho has an aura around him that makes him extremely special.

AC Milan were heavily linked with a move for the Real Madrid midfielder Kaka, who was one of the best players for the club during this six years at the San Siro. The player moved to the Spanish club in a £ 60 million deal back in 2009, but he has struggled to replicate his form due to a number of problems.
The former Portuguese midfielder Deco has hailed the managerial record of the Real Madrid manager José Mourinho by saying that it is impossible for anyone to come close to the achievements of the Portuguese.
Mourinho is one of the few managers to have lifted the league title in four different countries, while he has also managed to create two Champions League winning teams. However, many regard the former Barcelona manager Guardiola as someone who is capable of challenging Mourinho due to his incredible record with Barcelona over the last four seasons.
