Speaking at a media event, Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) president Ednaldo Rodrigues has once again stated that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti will become the next head coach of the Brazil national team.

Rodrigues has been vocal in his pursuit of Ancelotti ever since Tite stepped down from his role after the FIFA World Cup last year.

While Brazil tried to appoint the 64-year-old tactician this summer itself, Ancelotti reaffirmed his commitment to Real Madrid and stated that he will complete his contract, which expires next year.

As such, Brazil are understood to have pushed Ancelotti’s appointment to next year, with Fernando Diniz being named manager on an interim basis.

And now, he has once again stated that the Real Madrid boss will definitely be taking over the reins of the Canarinha next year.

After the announcement of the Brazil squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, a journalist asked Rodrigues: “Is Ancelotti a dream or a reality?

In response, the CBF president replied (h/t MARCA): “For us, it’s a reality.”

Ancelotti has denied to speak on the matter of the Brazil job and it has even been suggested in the media that the Italian could continue at Real Madrid beyond the ongoing season.

However, at the same time, the CBF president appears to be extremely confident that the 64-year-old legend will be with the Brazil national team come next year.

So, it will certainly be interesting to see what course this story takes.

Now that Nacho is ready to join Al Qadsiah, Real Madrid have decided to ramp up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro, reports Jose Felix Diaz via MARCA.

As reported before, Nacho has decided to end his career with the Spanish club as he has agreed to a two-year contract with Al Qadsiah in the Saudi Pro League. With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now have a spot open in their defence and are eager to fill it with Yoro.

It is important to note that Yoro has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. Paris Saint-Germain have been particularly active in trying to sign him, offering €60 million for the player. 

Although this offer is close to what Lille wants, Yoro isn’t interested in moving to PSG.

What Yoro is looking forward to is joining Real Madrid. While the player and Real Madrid have a verbal agreement, the deal with Lille still needs to be finalised soon.

What about the transfer fee?

Regarding the transfer fee, Real Madrid are hesitant to match PSG’s €60 million offer because Yoro has only one year left on his contract.

Initially, the club planned to wait until June 30 to begin serious negotiations. However, due to the increasing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, they might need to speed up the process.

With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now has the necessary room to strengthen their defence and Yoro fits the bill. 

Madrid already have Yoro in plans

It must be noted that the club’s management, in accordance with Carlo Ancelotti, is already planning next season’s lineup of centre-backs. 

They expect Rafa Marin to leave, so the defensive lineup for coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and possibly Yoro if they can complete the negotiations successfully.

Real Madrid are focusing on building a strong defence for the upcoming season. They see Yoro as a valuable addition and are working hard to secure his transfer. 

The next steps involve reaching an agreement with Lille and finalizing the transfer details as soon as possible.
