Brazil stars rally behind out-of-form Tottenham Hotspur star Richarlison.

Carlo Ancelotti tells Real Madrid to sign Richarlison

According to Defensa Central, Carlo Ancelotti has told Real Madrid to sign talented Tottenham Hotspur striker Richarlison in the summer.

Ancelotti, who previously worked with the Brazilian at Everton, believes that the versatile attacker could be the perfect addition to his team. The Italian manager is seeking a striker who can not only provide healthy competition for Karim Benzema but also offer flexibility by playing out wide when required.

With his pace, technical ability, and eye for goal, Richarlison ticks all the boxes for Ancelotti’s desired profile. Tottenham Hotspur, however, will not be willing to part ways with their talented forward without a hefty fee.

Last summer, Spurs invested a significant amount to secure Richarlison’s services, paying Everton an initial £50 million, with a further £10 million in potential add-ons, as reported by Sky Sports.

Real Madrid, undoubtedly one of the most illustrious clubs in the world, regularly lifting trophies in both La Liga and the UEFA Champions League, could be an enticing proposition for Richarlison.

The opportunity to don the famous white shirt and showcase his skills at the Santiago Bernabeu might be too alluring for the Brazilian forward, especially considering his somewhat underwhelming season at Tottenham.

During the current Premier League campaign, Richarlison has started 12 matches for Spurs, while making a further 14 appearances off the bench. In these games, the Brazilian number 9 has managed to find the back of the net only once.

With Real Madrid’s keen interest in securing Richarlison’s services and the financial strength to back up their pursuit, Tottenham could face a tough decision in the upcoming transfer window.
