Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed real Madrid will not sign any more players in this summer’s transfer window, insisting his team is doing as well as it is.

Ancelotti has also claimed that despite his struggles since joining the club, Eden Hazard could be used as a fake No9 for the upcoming season.
As reported by brand, said the 63-year-old: “I can’t talk about the signings, but I can already say that it’s all over. We will not commit anyone. We’re fine like that’.
On the forward position, Ancelotti added: “We have many options for this position. Benzema is number 1 but we have to understand that it will be a strange season, different, with the World Cup in between and we have to see other options.
“My idea is to try and see Eden in that position.
“Given the quality Eden has and his qualities, it could be good for us to test him there. It’s a similar case to Asensio.’

Hazard has failed to secure a regular spot in recent seasons and has scored just six goals in all competitions in his three years at the club – the lowest total in a single season at Chelsea.
But the Belgian is said to be fitter than he has been for a while and could finally repay the £103million the club spent on him in 2019.
Ancelotti also praised new boys Rudiger and Tchouameni, saying: “The signings bring great quality to the squad. They are the best in their positions that can be found on the market.
“Rüdiger is a great central defender and Tchouameni is the same, he is very young and has a lot of advantage.

“He is already an international with France. .. we use this tour so that they adapt to the squad we have.
Real enjoyed a great campaign last season after winning the Laliga title by 13 points before finding European glory against Liverpool.
They start their campaign on August 10 with a Supercup clash against Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt before traveling to Almeria four days later to open their title defence.
