Real Madrid’s recent elimination from the UEFA Champions League appears to have reignited speculations over the future of Carlo Ancelotti.

Although the Real Madrid bosses were highly impressed by the team’s performances in the knockout rounds of the UCL, coupled with the success in the Copa Del Rey, the 4-0 bashing at the hands of Man City certainly was not taken well.

The humiliating defeat has led to fresh fears that Ancelotti might leave Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, especially with the Italian being closely linked with a move to the Brazilian national team.

In fact, RadioMARCA reports that CBF, the Brazilian football federation, will land in Madrid next week to hold talks with Ancelotti. They will present an offer to the Italian coach and seek his final answer.

Brazil have maintained their interest in Ancelotti for a long time now, with the former AC Milan coach being identified as the ideal replacement for Tite. The previous coach left at the end of last year after Brazil’s debacle at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Ancelotti has, time and time again, refused to talk about the links to Brazil, though. Heading into the Man City game, the veteran manager had even expressed his desire to remain at Santiago Bernabeu until the end of his contract, which expires in 2024.

But following the damaging result, it will be interesting to see whether Ancelotti faces internal pressure to leave the club in the coming summer, which in turn, could compel him to take up the offer from the CBF.

In the meantime, Ancelotti will be focused on leading his team to victories in the remaining matches of the season and end the season on a positive note.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report



Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.

According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.

The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.

The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.

There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.

Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.

Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
