Ever since the 2023/24 football season began, Carlo Ancelotti’s future at Real Madrid was one of the most talked about subjects.

The Italian mastermind was contacted by the Brazilian Football Federation and several reports indicated that he is very much interested in taking up the job.

As it turns out, after months of speculation, Ancelotti ended up signing a new deal with Real Madrid until 2026, putting an end to a long-standing saga. 

Now, it must be noted that Ancelotti handled the Brazil situation well. Everyone knew that the president of the Brazilian Football Federation wanted him to be the next head coach and although he did toy with the idea for a while, he ended up committing to Real Madrid at the end.

Ancelotti’s contract extension with Madrid surprised everyone, including the coach himself and people around the club. 

This is because it’s unusual for Madrid to renew a manager’s contract mid-way through the season, especially when the team didn’t win major titles like the Champions League and La Liga in the previous season – something usually expected to secure a manager’s position at Madrid.

Adding to it, a report from The Athletic has emerged, saying that although his new contract runs until 2026, Ancelotti’s close circle is aware that his tenure is dependent on results, especially at Real Madrid.

They don’t take it for granted that he will remain with Madrid until 2026 just because he was given a two-year contract by the club.

This means that there is a high possibility that he might depart if Real Madrid once again fail to win any major titles this season.

After unveiling the final squad for France for the upcoming European Championship, coach Didier Deschamps appeared in front of the media to discuss the nation’s preparations for the tournament.

Deschamps was notably asked about Kylian Mbappe and his potential move to Real Madrid in the coming summer.

Deschamps on Mbappe announcement

When asked when Real Madrid may announce the signing of Mbappe, the French coach replied (h/t L’Equipe), “They will decide when it’s time to make it official. As far as possible, I will adapt to the squad.”

This comes on the back of earlier reports which claim that Real Madrid are desperate to announce the signing of Mbappe before the start of Euro 2024.

The coveted tournament begins June 14, though France’s opening game is on June 18 as they take on Austria in the city of Dusseldorf.

Deschamps also dismissed concerns over Mbappe’s form, stating, “You don’t find Kylian Mbappé in good shape? He only scored 44 goals in the season. It’s true that he could have done better.”

Deschamps on Tchouameni’s fitness

As things stand, a total of three Real Madrid players are a part of the France squad for the European Championship.

One of them is Aurelien Tchouameni, who picked up a knock earlier this month which could keep him out of the upcoming Champions League final.

Deschamps, though, is not worried about his fitness and is hopeful of having the midfielder back for the Euros.

“Tchouaméni? I’m not worried. The deadline is too short for the UCL final but for the Euro it’s more than doable,” he said.
