Ancelotti’s future at Real Madrid hangs in the balance as his existing contract in the Spanish capital approaches its conclusion at the close of the 2023–24 season.
The Italian manager, currently in his second stint with the La Liga powerhouse, has steered the club to two successful seasons, prompting varied opinions on Real Madrid’s decision after his current contract concludes.
Reports from Marca suggest that the Brazilian national team is closely monitoring Ancelotti, expressing admiration and a desire for him to potentially become their coach in the future.
Despite Ancelotti consistently downplaying links with the Selecao, speculation about his potential takeover of the Brazilian national team persists.
Amidst the ongoing discussions regarding the future of the former AC Milan manager, Spanish outlet Relevo has reported that Real Madrid is contemplating extending Ancelotti’s tenure at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.
According to Relevo’s report, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez views Ancelotti as the ideal candidate to lead the team, and discussions are underway regarding a contract renewal.
Perez seeks to deter Ancelotti from the prospect of coaching Brazil by proposing a contract that could include an initial year with a 12-month extension option.
Conversely, the Brazilian national team is reportedly inclined towards offering a straightforward deal.
However, the final decision rests with the 64-year-old manager, who must determine if he remains motivated by the challenges Real Madrid presents, along with the added expectation of securing at least one major trophy in 2024.
