Ancelotti wants to take his time

Ancelotti wants to find a replacement for David Alaba, who he lost last weekend due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The Austrian’s season is already over.

“There’s no question of saying no. We spoke with the club, we will evaluate it these days, there is time. The January market does not end before the 31st of the month, we will look for the best possible solution. For now, we are in no hurry”confided the Italian technician.

For now, Carletto is only focusing on his team’s final match of the season, scheduled for Thursday against Alaves. “We will finish the year well and then we will have time to make the best possible decision. Now is not the time to talk about names. If there is a good possibility, we will do it. We have time to think about it.”
