Following the shock 1-0 loss to RCD Mallorca in La Liga on Sunday, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti finds himself under increasing pressure.

The reigning champions of Spain and Europe are now eight points behind leaders and rivals Barcelona and questions are being raised over the performances of the men in white.

Amidst this, reports suggested that Ancelotti could be shown the doors by Real Madrid in case he fails to guide the team to the FIFA Club World Cup trophy.

Los Blancos face off against Egyptian club Al Ahly in the semi-finals of the competition in Morocco on Wednesday. A victory there would set up a date in the final with either Flamengo or Al Hilal.

While Real Madrid go into the tournament as favourites, injuries and recent performances have created some doubts, leading to speculations about Ancelotti’s job being in danger.

However, according to Jose Felix Diaz of MARCA, Ancelotti’s future is not under immediate threat and the FIFA Club World Cup is not seen as the final test for the Italian tactician and the rest of the team.

The report states that there have been ups and downs when it comes to the club’s confidence level in the manager and the team this season based on results. But Real Madrid are not one to take impulsive decisions and assess everything based on logic and analysis.

It is further claimed that Los Blancos were in a similar situation last season as well, but ended it with the La Liga and Champions League crowns.

Any call on Ancelotti’s continuity will only be taken in June, once the season is over, much like with the contracts of the players whose current deals are expiring.

For now, there have been some concerns, but the Club World Cup will not decide Ancelotti’s fate at Real Madrid. The focus, for now, is on winning the trophy for the eighth time.

Brazilian national team ‘dreaming’ of working with Ancelotti – Romano

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Brazilian national team are ‘dreaming’ of appointing Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti as their next manager.

The Selecao decided to part ways with Tite after the team underdelivered in the FIFA World Cup 2022. Ramon Menezes has taken charge of the senior team for the time being until a permanent appointment is made.

And, the Brazil Football Confederation is clear about who their preferred target is. Ancelotti has been heavily linked with the South American nation in recent months and comments from players like Ederson, Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Jr have only served to further fuel the rumours.

Now, Romano is claiming that Brazil dream of naming Ancelotti as their manager and are hoping that he will be parting ways with Real Madrid at the end of the season.

As far as the situation at the club is concerned, Romano states that Real Madrid are working hard to protect Ancelotti from external pressure as they want him to remain focused on winning the UEFA Champions League this season.

The Italian tactician remains in 100% control of the team at the moment and the club are trying to shield him from external factors.

However, at the same time, trophies are a must at a club of this stature and hence, Romano adds that Real Madrid have a potential list of candidates to take over.

Thomas Tuchel was among the names on the list, but has signed for Bayern Munich. Raul Gonzalez, currently in charge of the Castilla team, is also being looked at along with former Tottenham and PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino.

As of now, Ancelotti remains in control of things at Real Madrid and any decision on his future will only be made at the end of the season. And, Brazil are lying in wait to pounce if an opportunity to sign the Italian manager presents itself.
