Carlo Ancelotti’s future was a hot topic at Real Madrid not long ago, with many expecting the Italian to be sacked at the end of the season. There were also links with the Brazilian national team.

However, the situation has changed drastically and it appears Real Madrid are now convinced of Ancelotti, who looks likely to continue as the head coach beyond the summer, reports Sergio Santos.

The Spanish journalist suggests Real Madrid had informed Ancelotti that his services could be renewed if the club can beat Barcelona and Chelsea. He has passed both tests quite comfortably, which has renewed the faith in the Italian, as far as the club’s hierarchy is concerned.

The situation turned drastically especially after Real Madrid’s 4-0 victory over Barcelona in the semifinal of Copa Del Rey. The result allowed them to reach the final of the cup, with Los Blancos set to lock horns with Osasuna in the final.

Madrid’s astounding victory over Barcelona was followed by an equally impressive 4-0 aggregate win over Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal.

After the two results, Real Madrid are convinced that Ancelotti is the right man for the job. The Italian’s place as the head coach of the club will be guaranteed no matter what happens from this point.

However, Ancelotti would still look to secure his future by guiding Real Madrid to their second successive Champions League title. They also stand a chance to secure the Copa Del Rey – a trophy that has historically eluded the club.

In any case, Ancelotti’s continuity could be strategically crucial for Real Madrid as they look to prepare for the season ahead. The Italian hasn’t been backed well in the market over the past couple of transfer windows, so it will be interesting to whether the scenario changes in the coming summer.

France set for major boost as Real Madrid midfielder closes in on a return

After a long wait, the European Championship is finally underway, with one of the tournament’s favourites Germany opening the competition with an emphatic 5-1 win over Scotland.

Another favourite to win the Euro 2024 is France, who will be in action on Monday as they take on Austria. One of the talking points heading into this game is the fitness of Real Madrid superstar, Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman had picked up an injury late into the 2023/24 campaign, which notably saw him miss the UEFA Champions League final. It was thought that the midfielder would miss a chunk of the Euros as well.

Tchouameni available for France’s group stage games

However, it appears Tchouameni has made a remarkable recovery and could be in contention to feature in France’s group-stage matches.

That is according to AS, which suggests that coach Didier Deschamps is counting on the midfielder to become available sooner rather than later.

Although Tchouameni has been ruled out for France’s opening game against Austria, the player is hoping to feature in the two remaining group matches against Poland and the Netherlands.

Up until this point, Tchouameni completed individual training sessions with France’s physical trainer. But recently, he was able to join the team’s training session ahead of the Austria game.

Tchouameni’s return could serve as a massive boost for France. Even though Les Bleus already have a stacked midfield unit, coach Deschamps is a huge admirer of Tchouameni and had backed him to get fit the moment he picked up an injury.

Deschamps, after all, did not opt to replace the Real Madrid star with another player.

France, of course, will have to proceed with caution, knowing the youngster has just recovered from his injury. But they can be hopeful of the player taking part as the tournament progresses.
