Carlo Ancelotti’s continuity at Real Madrid is currently the talk of the town. After having undergone a bad run of form where they lost to Barcelona and Villarreal in important outings, the Italian’s links with Brazil intensified over the moon.

However, three consecutive wins have put Madrid right back on track and despite the fact that winning La Liga is still a distant dream, they are still in the hunt to win the Copa del Rey title as well as the UEFA Champions League trophy.

Earlier this month, the Italian confessed that the Madrid management is in his full support and he feels very proud of what he has achieved at the club.

“I feel proud of everything, it [his second spell with Madrid] has been a success so far. I hope to continue, but I am proud of what I have achieved,” he said.

“I think [Madrid president Florentino] Perez supports me. The president is always very affectionate with me, we will be here next season without a doubt, I will respect the contract.”

Despite the Italian’s words, journalist Jorge Picon writes that Brazil still haven’t given up on him and the South American nation is ready to wait right until the end of the season to make a decision.

In Brazil, everyone considers him an ideal candidate but at the same time, they do know that Madrid are quite happy with his services. This is why they are ready to wait until the end of the season and once it is confirmed that the managerial bench will not be vacated by the Italian, only when will they start looking for alternatives.

In that regard, Roma boss Jose Mourinho and Fenerbahçe manager Jorge Jesus are looked upon as alternatives.

On the other hand, if Madrid decide to discontinue Ancelotti’s services, the Italian would gladly accept Brazil’s offer. This has been Ancelotti’s condition since the beginning. Personally, he would never leave Madrid but if he is to depart, he would only move to Brazil.

It is to note that why Brazil are not in hurry to sign a head coach is the fact that there are no important matches lined up for them until September when the qualifying phase of the next FIFA World Cup starts.

In Brazil, they are anticipating that whoever will arrive will have three years of time to get the team ready for the world event while he can also test out his techniques at the 2024 Copa America.

Real Madrid determine two ‘Plan A’ signings for summer – transfers



As Real Madrid brace themselves for a busy summer transfer window with an array of exits on the cards, the club is particularly keen on beefing up their attacking positions. Following a difficult season where the Copa del Rey trophy proved to be one of the only redeeming factors, recruitments are sought after in the hope of regaining their crown in Europe.

Florentino Perez envisions a competitive Real Madrid attack next season and thus links with football’s most prized assets barely astound. In a recent revelation by Pacojo Ser, it appears that the Los Blancos have set their sights on Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane. The two Englishmen are considered Madrid’s plan A.

Bellingham has long been on Madrid’s radar and arguably has one foot in the Spanish capital already. Fabrizio Romano informs that Real Madrid hope to complete the details of his deal next week. Talks are advancing between Dortmund and Madrid as they edge towards an agreement.

Bellingham fell short of the Bundesliga title after a dramatic final day but ended up salvaging the player of the competition award. In 31 Appearances, he garnered 8 Goals and 4 Assists, with 34 Chances created, a 55% Tackle completion, and a 67% Dribble success.

On the other hand, Harry Kane continues to be monitored significantly by the Real Madrid hierarchy. While his future mostly revolves around the continuation of Benzema which is still up in the air, Kane would be considered a priority signing, especially if Benzema’s move to Saudi Arabia materializes.

Kane currently has the second most goal+assists in the premier league season, with a total of 33. Despite falling behind Haaland in numbers, he performed consistently for Spurs as they endured a rocky season marred with complications.

Real Madrid are in the midst of a transition phase as the ageing midfield requires new blood, while the front line has many uncertainties. After Asensio’s departure, losing Benzema would further deplete the attack. Thus Bellingham and Kane being considered as the ‘Plan A’ hardly comes as a surprise.
