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.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
