Carlo Ancelotti has two players who could leave sooner or later, but he has ruled out new signings for Real Madrid in January.

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has arrived at a decision saying that he will not be open to signing any players for the club in the forthcoming January transfer window.

It is the Italian manager’s second takeover at Santiago Bernabeu, and so far, they have been on the top level. Blancos are enjoying the top position in La Liga at the moment and have also qualified to the knockout phase of the Champions League.

Suggestions have reached the grounds of Madrid that the club could boost their chances to seize major silverware if they get hold of some new players in the winter. However, Ancelotti opts to think otherwise as he believes that they have enough players to last the entire season.

As we all have been reading, Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger are prime targets for the La Liga toppers. But, Ancelotti has ruled out all the signings for the January window as he told the reporters: “I don’t like January signings much.”

“If we have players who aren’t happy, it’s something we can think about. But we are not going to sign anyone. We have enough to compete until the end of the season.”

Eden Hazard and Isco are two players who have been linked with a move away from Madrid as soon as possible. The former Chelsea star has struggled to recover from several injuries, while the Spanish midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at Real.

While talking about Hazard’s return to the field against Athletic Club on Wednesday, Ancelotti said: “He must improve his fitness. Because he’s had problems of different kinds.”
