Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that no players will arrive or leave his squad until after the conclusion of the World Cup in Brazil, although he will listen to serious offers for a trio of top players, as reported by the Marca in Spain.
Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that he is more than happy with his Champions League winning squad and believes all it needs is a few added extras for the season ahead, something the club is not going to address until after Brazil.
Marquee signing for Real
Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, has stressed that the club is in the market for another marquee signing this summer, with Luis Suarez top of the list, however rumours coming out of Spain, is that the Uruguayan and Liverpool striker will snub Real's approach and join Luis Enrique's revolution at Barcelona.
Speculating on transfer rumours in football is more high risk than trading on the commodity markets, so don't be surprised if Suarez ends up at the Santiago Bernabeu next season alongside Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema, in what would without question be the most formiddable attacking force in world football.
Offers for trio
With this in mind, Ancelotti has stressed that although he is more than happy with Fabio Coentrao, Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria, he will listen to sizeable offers for the trio in order to bring a little liquidity to the club.
Coentrao almost moved away from Real last summer and has been on the radar of a host of top European clubs including Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Monaco.
Top players from Real and Barcelona will always attract attention from other clubs, and like Coentrao, Sami Khedira has attracted interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.
All three clubs could be tempting for the German international considering the lure of Champions League football however with Chelsea's midfield resources, Khedira could have a more starring role in the middle of the park for Brendan Rodgers team.
The temptation to link up with international teammates, Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil at Arsenal could prove the best move, however my feeling is that the Gunners might very well fall short on the asking price.
Di Maria will attract attention
Argentine international Angel DI Maria will catch the attention of most top clubs, especially when you take into account that he has just come off the back of his best season to date with Real Madrid.
His surging runs down the left caused havoc for opposition defences all of last season, and when Ancelotti says he will consider a sizeable offer for these three players, you can bet Di Maria is the one player he wants to keep hold of the most, and would certainly be the one with the biggest price-tag over his head.
Di Maria has plenty of skill to offer any of the big clubs
The Real Madrid board has made it clear that nobody leaves or arrives until after the World Cup in the hope that the three players in question, all currently involved in the tournament, will put in some value increasing performances in Brazil which the club will exploit if they are put in a position that they simply can't refuse.
