Carlo Ancelotti talks about the future of signing Vinicius and Luka Modric with Real Madrid

On Saturday, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the future of a pair of club stars.

First comes the latest on Vinicius Tobias.

For those who don’t know, 18-year-old Vinicius opted to swap Ukrainian heavyweight Shakhtar Donetsk at the Bernabeu earlier this month, on loan until the summer of 2023.

From here, Real Madrid will have the option of making the full-back’s arrival permanent, with a 5-year contract already in place agreed between two sides.

And if Ancelotti’s recent comments above are anything to go by, it’s an option that people who are in a position of strength in the Spanish capital intend to take full advantage of.

Speaking at a press conference on Saturday afternoon, the Italian tactician confirmed that Vinicius is already ‘part of Real Madrid for the future’: “He’s very good – I see a lot of quality and potential in this boy,” Ancelotti seem. “He is a player that we consider part of Real Madrid’s project for the future.”

‘it will happen’

Ancelotti was then drawn, from here, to the future of one of those on the other end of the age scale at the Bernabeu, in the form of Luka Modric.

Of course, Croatian maestro Modric saw his name take center stage during the week, after providing the most assists for Real Madrid’s comeback by dropping Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals.

In contrast, it was not a huge surprise when the club president was asked about the latest news of the contract negotiations underway between the club and the player.

This comes before Modric’s current terms expire in the summer.

Despite this, Ancelotti was quick to assuage any fears from Blancos followers that the veteran midfielder may be on his way soon, assuring that Modric will continue to spend his days playing in the Spanish capital:
