Brazil Secures Deal with Carlo Ancelotti: Exciting Move Confirmed?
As of right now, Ancelotti has been a member of Real Madrid for three seasons after rejoining the team in the summer of 2021.
Despite winning six trophies in his second stint in charge, it is still unknown if he will be in charge for the 2024–25 season.
Ancelotti has been associated with the Brazil position for most of 2023; the Brazilian football association is eager to choose the Italian.
Head coach of Fluminense Fernando Diniz, who took over for Tite earlier this year, is currently leading the national team while juggling his responsibilities.
Diniz was selected for a one-year term, and there is growing suspicion that Ancelotti would take over as manager at the end of the current campaign.
The Real Madrid manager is in the last year of his contract, which ends in June 2024. He has never held the position of head coach of a national team.
The Athletic reports that Ancelotti has previously indicated in writing that he would be open to taking over the position the following season, according to the Brazilian Football Association (CBF).
It is reported in the report that the CBF has “legal guarantees” that Ancelotti will succeed Diniz; nevertheless, it is not thought that any agreement has legal force behind it.
The 64-year-old will be free to engage with other teams starting in January as he approaches the last six months of his contract.
Real Madrid, however, hasn’t ruled out the prospect of extending Ancelotti’s contract, particularly if the group keeps turning in successful performances.
Los Blancos have won their previous five games and are currently on a 13-game winning streak in all competitions.
They easily won their Champions League group and are currently tied for first place in La Liga with surprise squad Girona, both with 38 points.
The club’s preferred choice in the event that Ancelotti leaves at the end of the season would be Xabi Alonso, the current manager of Bayer Leverkusen and a former player for Real Madrid.
