Ancelotti targets Everton striker for Real Madrid

Press reports revealed today, Sunday, that the Italian Carlo Ancelotti, the new coach of Real Madrid, aims to include his former striker at Everton, the English international Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

And the British newspaper, “The Sun”, said that Ancelotti aims to include Calvert Lewin to Real Madrid, in a deal that could cost the Spanish club, 50 million pounds.

And the British newspaper confirmed that Everton suffered financial losses of 240 million pounds in two seasons due to the impact of the outbreak of the Corona virus, and the decline in revenues due to the absence of fans, which pushes the main owner of the club, Farhad Moshiri, to the problem of dealing with the laws of financial fair play, to reduce expenses and salaries and sell some his players.

And the newspaper added, Ancelotti knows the financial situation of the Everton team well and has used it to negotiate the departure despite the remaining 3 seasons in his contract and return to Real Madrid, and will try to take advantage of the opportunity and make an offer of up to 50 million pounds to join the 24-year-old striker, who has developed greatly under his leadership.

Although the English international Dominic Calvert-Lewin is currently worth about 60 million pounds, the team's financial crisis may push him to accept a lower financial offer.

Real Madrid is looking to strengthen its offensive line, and in light of the difficulty of contracting with the French Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, or the Norwegian Erling Halland from Borussia Dortmund, as their teams demand astronomical sums of more than 150 million euros, he may resort to alternative solutions and less expensive players.

Ancelotti also wanted to sign German Timo Werner, but Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel wants to keep his compatriot despite his mediocre first season in England.
