Bernabeu boss targets Stamford Bridge and Etihad Stadium stars.
Real Madrid are ready to spend vast sums in order to further improve their Bernabeu squad with boss Carlo Ancelotti setting his sights on four heavyweight transfer targets according to Spanish source El Mundo Deportivo.
Though Ancelotti spent over €150m (£126m) on new additions over the summer he also raked in €118m (£99m) from player sales with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Jose Callejon and Raul Albiol moving to Napoli and Mesut Ozil joining Arsenal. Therefore the former PSG and Chelsea boss has scope for further big name signings and has been planning accordingly.
With Karim Benzema struggling for form and becoming something of a figure of hate witha portion of Real Madrid’s supporters the La Liga side have set their sights on AS Monaco forward Radamel Falcao, who is said to have a clause in his contract that would allow a possible move to the Spanish giants.
Ancelotti is also keen on Man City pair David Silva and Sergio Aguero, with both players clearly being proven La Liga performers, though almost certainly players the Etihad Stadium side would not given up lightly.
Carlo Ancelotti is also keen on bringing in Chelsea midfielder Ramires, who he signed during his time in charge of the Stamford Bridge side.
Ramires has already racked up 160 appearances for Chelsea and is a key member of the Blues squad, the scorer of crucial goals and an adaptable performer who played a pivotal role in the West London club’s Champions League and Europa League triumphs.
Chelsea paid Benfica £18m to land Ramires back in August 2010 and one would imagine his value has increased significantly in the intervening period.
