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.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
