The noise surrounding Carlo Ancelotti and his potential appointment as the Brazil national team manager from next year is starting to cause some concerns within the Real Madrid camp.

The Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) president Ednaldo Rodrigues has been very vocal about their pursuit of Ancelotti and even appeared to confirm the Italian’s appointment starting next year in a recent interview.

However, his repeated comments in the media about the matter have led to some concerns about Ancelotti and his motivation at Real Madrid heading into the new season.

As such, The Athletic is now reporting that Ancelotti has not signed any contract with Brazil as of yet and his entourage continues to deny claims that there is a verbal agreement in place for him to take over the reins of the Selecao next year.

However, it is only natural for Real Madrid to have some concerns especially given the constant chatter around the subject in the media.

Ancelotti had some problems in his second season back at the club and with a new, youthful squad and without Karim Benzema, the club believe there could be more issues in the upcoming campaign as well.

And, in case of a bad start to the season, the club will not rule out the possibility of sacking Ancelotti even before his contract expires in 2024.

Ancelotti has always maintained that Real Madrid are his priority and had ambitions of retiring at the Santiago Bernabeu. But, sources close to the Italian indicate that the dream of ending his career with Los Blancos have faded and there is a possibility of him moving to Brazil.

At the same time, though, if things go well next term and he is offered a new contract by Real Madrid, the 64-year-old would be more than happy to sign it.

The situation is far from ideal, given the noise around the manager’s future before the start of the season. And a misstep in the early parts of the campaign could end up costing Ancelotti his job.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
