The 61-year-old Italian completed a surprise return to the Spanish giants on Tuesday, just days after it was reported that he was being considered as Zinedine Zidane's replacement by Florentino Perez.
ESPN reported earlier this week that captain and centre-back Sergio Ramos could be gearing up for an exit, with Manchester City said to be preparing a two-year contract offer for the 35-year-old, who was left out of Spain's 2020 UEFA European Championship squad.
The veteran enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Ancelotti between 2013 and 2015, but has not yet signed a new contract with the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners.
Experienced left-back Marcelo could also be let go by the Spanish giants, having seemingly lost his importance in the side over the past two seasons.
In the 2020/21 campaign, the Brazilian fullback made just 19 appearances across all competitions, assisting only four goals.
Reports in Europe suggest that Ramos' centre-back partner Raphael Varane is on Manchester United's transfer shortlist, though his future in Spain might depend on Ancelotti’s stance.
While he has endured on-field struggles in recent times, the Frenchman is still only 28 years old, and, with 18 career trophies to his name, is among the most successful players in the world for his age group.
A few more players' futures in Spain could be uncertain following the return of Ancelotti – see who they are in the gallery above!
