That seems to be the case.Odd decision my Madrid. They seem to be in the need of a transition and a past it Ancelotti who really is a calming influence rather than someone to revolutionise seems a peculiar choice. I mean, Zidane seems to pretty much be a better version of Ancelotti nowadays - someone who is not very systems heavy but focused on getting the best out of people. Maybe it's just a safe choice to get Madrid though pandemic times.
Carlo will be there to promote a few youngsters, get 1-2 good players in and somehow try to rejuvenate some of the old guard like Isco and Bale. He's a steady manager who doesn't really make a fuss in the press, that's what Madrid need now.
They're in massive debt. Word in Spain is that banks are starting to refuse their loans as well(same as Barca) so, maybe panic mode has been enabled by Florentino.
I wonder what would've happened with Madrid during Covid if their net spend in the last 5-8 years would have been 500-600m instead of 100m.
