The future of Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has been a topic of much discussion over the past few months.

The Italian tactician’s contract with Los Blancos stands to expire at the end of the season and it has been widely speculated that he will be the next manager of the Brazil national team.

The Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) has been quite vocal about its pursuit of Ancelotti, but the Real Madrid boss has distanced himself from the talk and has remained focused on the job at hand.

Real Madrid could offer Ancelotti a new contract

Now, though, there could be a twist in the tale as journalist Hugo Cerezo (h/t Madrid Xtra) is reporting that Real Madrid are considering the possibility of offering a new two-year contract to Carlo Ancelotti.

It is no secret that the 64-year-old shares a special bond with club president Florentino Perez and the institution as a whole.

As such, the top brass at the Valdebebas is considering offering Ancelotti a new deal so that there is continuity in the project that he has started with a young core involving the likes of Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo Goes, Jude Bellingham, and Eduardo Camavinga, among others.

The Real Madrid board has in mind to formulate a renewal proposal that could even be for two years – it remains to be seen whether one year with an option for a second or two years as a permanent – to get Ancelotti to stay and snub Brazil.

The veteran manager, for his part, is thinking about the present and is focused on winning more trophies with Real Madrid.

But previous reports have suggested that he would be open to continuing at the Bernabeu if offered a new deal.

Ancelotti will take stock of his future and assess his options at a later date, but the wheels could be set in motion from Perez and Real Madrid’s end, with the possibility of a renewal now very much on the table.

Until there is a signature and an agreement, nothing can be taken for granted, with the likes of Xabi Alonso and Raul Gonzalez in line to replace Ancelotti if he does not continue.
