Carlo Ancelotti urgently expects president Florentino Perez to pay for the recruitment of Victor Osimhen and Rafael Leao in the next winter transfer window.
The Italian strategist wants to increase personnel for the attack, after the Royal team bought Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
Karim Benzema’s persistent injury situation added to the problem at the Bernabeu. Therefore, coach Ancelotti has proposed two names Leao and Osimhen for president Perez to consider down the money.
Rafael Leao is considered one of the most promising young strikers in Europe today, being watched by many big European teams such as Chelsea, Man City or PSG.
In the 2021/22 season, Leao was voted the best player in Serie A. He is still performing impressively, scoring 6 goals and has 9 assists in the domestic league as well as the Champions League this season.
The current contract between the Portuguese striker and AC Milan is only valid until June 2024. If Rafael Leao does not sign an extension, the Milan team will have to consider selling immediately to collect a high transfer fee.
In addition to Leo, coach Ancelotti also has an eye on another quality striker in Serie A, Victor Osimhen, on the staff of Napoli.
The Nigerian goalscorer is playing at the Diego Maradona Stadium, scoring 9 goals in 13 appearances, helping coach Luciano Spalletti’s army lead in Serie A with a series of 14 unbeaten matches.
Osimhen is considered an ideal replacement for Benzema who has turned 34. Recently, the French striker has been constantly tormented by injuries.
