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 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.
