Carlo Ancelotti Happy With Real Madrid Squad Depth

Italian tactician sees no reason to add.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has said that the squad doesn’t need any new additions this summer despite continuous links to Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale, Sky Sports reports.

The Spanish giants are still very much in for the Welsh international, having been linked with making a world record £85 million offer to convince Spurs to part with him, though no deal has been brokered yet.

And while Ancelotti would welcome a player of Bale’s calibre and class, he has also admitted that he would not be upset to see the rest of the transfer window through without the 23-year-old, or any other new additions, at his disposal.

“I’m very happy with the squad. We don’t need any more players,” said the former Chelsea and Milan man.

“The important thing is to create a style of play that is comfortable for my players.

“Our objective is not only to win but to also play beautiful, attacking football.”

Madrid kicked off their season on Sunday with a 2-1 victory over Real Betis. The Sevilla-based cub took a shock lead after 15 minutes, but goals from Karim Benzema and new boy Isco was enough to ensure they collected all three points to kick start their season.
