According to GE Globo, the Brazil Football Federation (CBF) is planning to meet with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to discuss the possibility of appointing Carlo Ancelotti as the manager of the Brazilian national team.

The Selecao have been without a head coach since the World Cup, as Tite decided to step away after the team’s premature exit from the quarter-final stages.

Ancelotti has been high on the wishlist of the CBF, with the federation already making overtures in the past to name the Italian tactician as the manager.

While the Real Madrid boss had distanced himself from those claims, the Brazilian Federation remain keen on his appointment and are prepared to wait until the end of the season for him to take over.

To that end, Ednaldo Rodrigues plans to meet Real Madrid supremo Perez to present a formal proposal for Ancelotti sometime this month.

The former Chelsea boss’ strong relationship with Brazilian players like Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao, and Casemiro is seen as one of the reasons for the CBF to push for his appointment so eagerly.

As iterated earlier, the CBF would be prepared to wait for Ancelotti, whose Real Madrid contract runs until 2024, till June for him to complete the season and then take over the Brazilian national team.

Until then, the plan is to hand the reins of the Selecao first-team setup to Ramon Menezes, who is the current manager of the Brazil U-20 national team.

There have been reports that Ancelotti’s future at Real Madrid could be at risk amidst the club’s iffy form recently. However, any decision will be made only after the season. If Los Blancos do decide to part ways with him then, it could open the door for him to become Brazil’s next boss.

If Ancelotti refuses, Brazil have former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho as an option as well.

According to a report from El Chiringuito TV, Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe wants to be presented as the new Real Madrid player before the beginning of UEFA Euro 2024.

It is to be noted that Euro commences on June 14, a mere 13 days after this season’s UEFA Champions League final.

Now, PSG will have their commitment in Ligue 1 until May 18, and depending on their performance in the Champions League, they will officially end their 2023/24 campaign.

At best, if it ends in May itself, Mbappe can see his dream turning into reality but if the French team somehow reaches the UCL final, the French superstar will have to report for international duty soon after

As such, there would not be any fee involved in the transfer since Mbappe will move as a free agent, but as reported before, the team from the Spanish capital will pay him an extravagant signing-on bonus expected to be around €120-150 million.

As of today, both Real Madrid and Mbappe are working on the final details of the contract. While it is assumed that he would earn a fixed salary of €14 million each season in addition to €30 million in bonuses, there remains a disparity regarding his image rights.

At PSG, Mbappe holds 100% of his image rights but Madrid have a policy that has only been mended once when a certain Cristiano Ronaldo joined from Manchester United in 2009.

Ever since the Galacticos era, Madrid have reserved 50% of the player’s image rights, but in the case of Mbappe, the team from the Spanish capital is okay with having just 20% of it as even that would churn in big money.

Once these details are sorted, Real Madrid can make the official announcement of the deal in collaboration with PSG. Once this is done, everyone will wait for PSG to end their campaign and depending on that, Mbappe will arrange his travel to Madrid.
