According to Brazilian news outlet UOL SPORT, the country’s football federation is in advanced negotiations to rope in Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti along with former midfielder Kaka as the manager and director of the national team respectively.

The news comes hours after Ancelotti, himself, denied being linked with a move to Brazil, saying, “Brazil national team? I don’t know anything about this, I don’t even know what they reported in Brazil.” 

“I’m Real Madrid coach, my contract is until June 2024,” he added.

It was only yesterday that news of Ancelotti’s links with Brazil broke out. As quoted before, Brazil have been on the lookout to sign their new manager following Tite’s departure after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Reports in Brazil have even claimed that CBF President Ednaldo Rodrigues is, in fact, planning to meet Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to present a formal offer for Ancelotti.

It adds that Ancelotti could well and truly pen down a three-year deal with the South American nation by the end of the current season. This means the Italian would be in charge of the team until the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

As it turns out, however, the Brazilian Football Confederation has come up to deny every report of Ancelotti’s acquisition.

“The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) states that the news released this Friday that the coach of Real Madrid, the Italian Carlo Ancelotti, is the new coach of the Brazil national team is unfounded,” the CBF said in a statement.

“President Ednaldo Rodrigues stands by the statement after the draw for the matches in the Copa do Brasil. At the time, the president ruled out speculation, saying that the matter will be dealt with transparently and that the coach chosen will be announced at the right time,” it added.

For now, Ancelotti is keen on fulfilling his Madrid contract, which runs until 2024, but if things go any south, one can expect that his tenure will be in jeopardy.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
