– I don’t know when this will stop. The objective of all leagues, not just the Spanish one, is to get closer to them by improving the quality of the game, the environment, the new stadiums, without violence. Premier advanced a lot with the sale of television rights, won the other leagues. There is a good atmosphere, without violence, the atmosphere is very good, with a full and functional stadium. They have an advantage and the objective of the others has to be to improve these aspects above all – said Ancelotti.
In the summer transfer window, which closed last Thursday in Europe’s top leagues, of the 10 clubs that spent the most, seven are part of the Premier League. Taking all the members of the Premier League together, the investment exceeded € 2.24 billion – the largest amount ever achieved in history. The total is about the same as Europe’s other top leagues combined.
Real Madrid didn’t move much in the summer market. Right at the beginning of the transfer window, the Merengue team hired its only two reinforcements: defender Antonio Rudiger, ex-Chelsea, and midfielder Tchouaméni, who came from Monaco. Ancelotti commented on the strategy.
– We never thought about signing more players. On departures, we evaluate Casemiro’s or Asensio’s situations, but I’m happy because those who stayed have always fulfilled and will fulfill again what is expected of them this year. There are many players with only one year of contract, but that is not a problem – concluded the coach.
