Digimagaz.com – Carlo Ancelotti expressed his satisfaction with the current Real Madrid squad, stating that it is already “complete” even without the addition of Kylian Mbappé. The remarks came after Madrid’s impressive 2-0 victory over Manchester United in a friendly match held at the AT&T Stadium in Houston.

In the game, Jude Bellingham, the club’s €103 million ($115m) summer signing, demonstrated his talent by opening the scoring with a composed finish, while another new acquisition, Joselu, added a second goal with a spectacular overhead kick.

Regarding tactical formations, Ancelotti has been experimenting with a 4-4-2 setup, featuring Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes as the front two. The coach praised their performances and highlighted the danger they pose to opponents with their dribbling abilities. The addition of Bellingham has also improved the team’s directness in transitions.

Meanwhile, the Mbappé situation remains unresolved, as he continues training with PSG’s reserves after being excluded from the club’s tour of Japan. Paris Saint-Germain is trying to pressure the French forward into either extending his contract or agreeing to a transfer before his contract expires.
