Carlo Ancelotti is ready to wield the axe at Real Madrid and replace his goalkeeper

No sooner is he back at the Santiago Bernabeu, than Carlo Ancelotti is making moves to ensure that next season’s Real Madrid squad will be all his own.

To that end, the Italian is already looking to offload one of his goalkeepers, according to Don Balon.

The unlucky custodian will be Andriy Lunin. The 22-year-old was signed by the club back in 2018 but has yet to make a competitive appearance for Los Blancos.

Thibaut Courtois remains the undisputed No.1 at Real Madrid

He’s been farmed out on loan to Leganes, Valladolid and Real Oviedo respectively, and now Ancelotti has decided it’s time for the club to cut their losses on a keeper that wants to play and won’t get the chance to do so in the Spanish capital.

Napoli’s Alex Meret is expected to be Lunin’s replacement, and the 24-year-old will be signed with the intention of putting pressure on undisputed first-choice, Thibaut Courtois.

It’s unlikely to be the only change at Real this summer either.
