Ancelotti open to renewing contract at Real Madrid if offered a new deal in 2024

Even as Real Madrid begin preparations for the season ahead, the future of Carlo Ancelotti has become a hot topic.

The Italian mastermind has been long linked with a move to Brazil, with the CBF formally approaching the coach multiple times. It is widely believed that Ancelotti will join the Brazilian national team next year, when his contract at Real Madrid comes to an end.

However, in an update from Diario AS (h/t UOL), Ancelotti has rejected a fresh offer from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. It appears he does not have any intention to coach in Saudi Arabia, even as multiple European stars scurry to the oil-rich nation for deep riches.

The report also points out that Ancelotti is open to renewing his contract at Santiago Bernabeu if Real Madrid approach him with a fresh offer.

CBF, meanwhile, has indicated their interest in signing Ancelotti, but the Real Madrid boss is yet to sign a contract. This is indicative of the fact that the Italian is indeed keen on continuing his spell at the Bernabeu.

During his second spell at Bernabeu so far, Ancelotti has notably led Real Madrid to Copa Del Rey, Champions League, and La Liga titles. However, the club’s poor performance last season led to massive scrutiny over his future in the Spanish capital.

Despite this, the Real Madrid bosses have continued to back Ancelotti ahead of the new season. But one would expect the club to take a solid decision next year, especially as they look to bring in Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.

While Ancelotti is open to renewing his contract, Real Madrid are unlikely to offer any proposal unless the club end up having an extraordinary 2023/24 campaign.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
