According to journalist Anton Meana, the situation between Carlo Ancelotti and the Brazilian national team is creating doubts within the Real Madrid administration. In the club, they wonder how the manager will motivate the squad if situations turn rough.

The Italian gaffer has not officially revealed anything about his future but several reliable sources have come out openly to announce his agreement with the Selecao

In fact, Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) president Ednaldo Rodrigues has himself announced that Ancelotti will take over the reins from next year’s Copa America. 

“For us, as coach of the Brazilian national team, he is not interim. He has a 12-month contract. He will make the transition to Ancelotti, who will arrive for the Copa America.”

Moreover, Real Madrid defender Eder Militao all but confirmed the same in his interview last week when he spoke in depth about the manager.

“Ancelotti is our coach at Real Madrid and he’s going to be our coach at the Canarinha. He’s happy and excited. He will give his best, I have no doubt about that. The national team will be in good hands.”

Despite such strong confirmation of the agreement with Brazil, Meana reports that Ancelotti’s management denies the same. From their side, they reportedly say that the coach would sign a renewal with Real Madrid without a second thought if an offer arrived.

The tactician’s future has been under a cloud of doubt for a long time now. Yet, he has always been rooted in the stance that he will honour his contract with the Copa del Rey champions before anything else.

Given that Ancelotti is a man of his word, there should not be much doubt over his zeal to succeed in the coming season.

With massive reformations in the squad, the manager hopes to change the team’s formation to a 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-2 next season. The coming preseason tour in the USA will be key for him to test his new theories.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
