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.

According to AS, Real Madrid have sent a three-year contract offer with improved wages to Dani Ceballos and trust that the midfielder will continue at the club.

Ceballos is the last among the seven Los Blancos’ stars who entered the 2022/23 season with an expiring contract whose future is yet to be resolved.

Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Karim Benzema have all left Real Madrid while Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Nacho Fernandez are all set to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more year.

As such, Ceballos remains the only player whose future remains unclear at this point.

The 26-year-old Spanish international has shown that he can offer value to the team and the club and manager Carlo Ancelotti are understood to ‘love’ him and want to retain his services.

Fans, too, made their feelings about the midfielder very clear this past weekend when Real Madrid played Athletic Club, as they chanted ‘Ceballos, stay!’

The Merengues have sent in a three-year proposal to the former Real Betis ace which includes an improvement in his wages. As such, the club expect him to pen the deal and continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, Ceballos is yet to make a decision as he is weighing up the fact that he will have to compete for a place with six other midfielders.

Indeed, Real Madrid already have Kroos, Modric, Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni as competition for Ceballos. Now, they will also add Jude Bellingham to the roster, further amping up the battle for places.

Ceballos has two more offers apart from the one from Real Madrid – one from Spain and Italy each, although his former club Real Betis have not sent a proposal yet.

With the season over and less than three weeks left on his contract, it remains to be seen what the Real Madrid ace decides.
