Ancelloti speaks on swapping Vinicius for Halaand

Carlo Ancelotti was asked if he would swap Vinicius Junior for Erling Haaland ahead of Real Madrid’s La Liga trip to Cadiz. However, the Madrid manager dismissed the idea, insisting that he wouldn’t trade Vinicius for anyone.

Vinicius has been in exceptional form this season, with 21 goals and 14 assists in 45 appearances for Los Blancos.

The Brazilian winger also leads the way for Madrid in chances created (89) and expected assists (10.68), making him a key player for the Spanish giants. In contrast, Haaland has been in prolific form for Manchester City, scoring 45 goals this season.

“No, what a question. Each one has his own. Madrid takes advantage of Vinicius and [City manager Pep] Guardiola from Haaland,” Ancelotti replied when asked if he would swap both stars.

Ancelotti confirmed he will be without Vinicius as well as Toni Kroos for Saturday’s game at Cadiz, with both having adductor strains, but insisted it is merely a precaution.
