With an unparalleled record of victories and an undeniable impact on the game, Carlo Ancelotti has earned a place among the all-time greats. His trophy cabinet is a testament to his success.
Having spearheaded Real Madrid to incredible heights and conquering club football, the Italian is not done yet, though and looks to be nearing a change in scenery.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Ancelotti is set to be the Brazil National Team’s next coach, with an agreement expected to be announced at the end of this month.
Shortly after Tite bid his farewell, who ended his career as a Brazilian coach after losing in the World Cup quarterfinals in Qatar, rumors about Ancelotti’s hiring began to circulate.
The president of the CBF, Ednaldo Rodrigues, went so far as to openly say that Tite’s replacement, the current Real Madrid coach, was always his “plan A.”
The report argues that the appointment of coach Carlo Ancelotti, who would take over the reins of the five-time world champions starting in “January or June” 2024, is taken for granted by the Brazilian Football Confederation.
Although Carlo has a contract until June 2024 with Madrid, doubts from his side are creeping in over the club’s sustainability next season as he fears a lack of recruitments up front. Worries about Madrid’s transfer plan are likely to fuel a premature decision to join the Brazilians.
Still, the Brazilians are reportedly willing to wait as long as they can for the coach’s signature even if he decides to run down the entirety of his contract.
The Italian mentor has invariably preached a free-flowing brand of football, maximizing his forwards and providing them an expressive platform. Such a philosophy particularly coincides with Brazil’s football.
Real Madrid midfield prodigy on the verge of signing a contract renewal – Romano
In a big development, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Real Madrid midfield sensation Eduardo Camavinga is on the verge of signing a new contract with the club.
The French international has been at the club since 2021, when he was signed from Rennes, and has grown into a vital member of Carlo Ancelotti’s setup.
Camavinga’s performances over the past year have been tremendous and the Frenchman is now one of the permanent fixtures in midfield even ahead of veterans like Luka Modric and Toni Kroos this season.
Only final details pending
Camavinga’s contract with Real Madrid runs until the summer of 2027, but the club have been working on offering him a new deal for a while now.
And now, Romano is reporting that the 20-year-old midfield prodigy is on the cusp of penning a renewal, with only the final details of the agreement left to be ironed out.
Camavinga’s new contract is set to come with a wage increase as well as a release clause as Real Madrid wish to ‘protect’ the player and avoid overtures from other clubs.
Key for the present and the future
Romano further outlines that Real Madrid see Camavinga as a key part of the club’s plans for the present and the future.
The 20-year-old midfield sensation loves the Merengues and the club too loves the young talent who has made rapid strides in the time that he has been there.
Some other reports in Spain suggest that Camavinga’s agent is already in the capital city to finalise the renewal agreement.
So, as things stand, Camavinga is set to sign a new contract with Real Madrid with a bigger salary and release clause.
The 20-year-old will form the core of the team for the present and the future along with fellow youngsters like Jude Bellingham, Aurelien Tchouameni, Vinicius Jr., and Rodrygo Goes, among others.
