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.

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.
