Brazil are refusing to give up on their pursuit of Carlo Ancelotti. Despite having been without a manager for almost six months now, the Selecao remain fixated on appointing the Real Madrid boss as their next head coach.

However, with Ancelotti confirming that he will be staying at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2024, when his contract expires, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) is considering naming him their manager from next year on.

In fact, reports over the weekend suggested that the Italian was edging closer to an agreement to take over the Brazil national team in 2024.

In the meantime, ESPN is now reporting that Brazil are plotting to appoint Ancelotti’s son and right-hand man Davide Ancelotti as a coach with the national team so as to ease the transition process in 2024.

For now, the idea is to continue with an interim manager until 2024 when Ancelotti becomes free from his contract at Real Madrid. And current interim boss Ramon Menezes could be joined the Merengues’ assistant manager, Davide Ancelotti, in the national team camp.

Davide, 33, has been working with his father since 2016 at Bayern Munich. Since then, the Italian has followed Ancelotti Sr at Napoli, Everton, and now Real Madrid.

The younger Ancelotti is rated very highly at the Spanish capital club and had been linked with an exit this summer, with reports suggesting that he was looking to kickstart his own managerial career soon, although those talks have died down since.

But, now, there are talks of him joining the Brazil national team’s coaching staff so as to potentially make the transition easy if his father decides to take the job with the Selecao next year.

A meeting is planned to discuss the details in the coming weeks and only time will tell how this story ends as Brazil remain adamant over Ancelotti’s appointment.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
