The Italian's first summer transfer window as Real Madrid boss came to a close last week, with the club purchasing five players, including a world record deal for Gareth Bale.
Speaking to uefa.com, Ancelotti revealed that he was pleased with the squad's quality and the energy brought to the table by some of the younger players.
"It's a very balanced and very competitive team. We have the right mix of talent and experience, and players with a lot of personality. The team is very good thanks to the squad's fantastic players. The youngest have contributed enthusiasm and intensity to our work," Ancelotti shared.
"We have Bale, who has just arrived and is a very well-known player, so there's not much to add. He's an outstanding young footballer with a great desire to come here and play for Real Madrid, so he'll do very well."
"The team has been strengthened in general with a lot of young guys, some of whom come from the Real Madrid academy, like Jese and Casemiro. Carvajal is a good right-back. In addition, two young Spaniards have been signed, Isco and Illarramendi, with experience in the Liga and on national sides. Isco has already played in the Champions League."
Many are keen to see how Ancelotti will accomodate both Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo into his starting line-up in this campaign.
The former Paris Saint-Germain manager is confident he will be able to utilize both his star players to their full potential.
"I think we'll arrive at a playing system that makes the most of both players' characteristics," Ancelotti stated.
"Great champions are placed in positions where they feel right, where they're comfortable. Therefore, we'll arrive at a playing style that reinforces both players' characteristics and those of the whole team."
