Real Madrid flop’s summer departure is ‘totally confirmed’ – report

A recent report from MARCA has offered an update on Real Madrid’s transfer policy, especially after Paris Saint-Germain’s elimination from the UEFA Champions League.

The defeat to Bayern Munich has indeed led to question marks over the future of Kylian Mbappe, with the club handing the player an ultimatum to make a definitive decision on his future.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they are closely observing the market. But a bigger challenge for the club will be resolving the future of their existing stars.

As per the report, Real Madrid appears to have reached a conclusion when it comes to the future of Mariano Diaz. It seems the former Lyon forward’s departure from Santiago Bernabeu has been confirmed, as he will not be prolonging his stay at the club.

Diaz’s exit from the Bernabeu will be hardly surprising as the forward has not made any impact over the past few seasons. He has featured in just over 50 minutes of action this season, falling behind the likes of Karim Benzema, Rodrygo and even the young Alvaro Rodriguez in the pecking order.

With his current contract expiring at the end of the season, Diaz is set to leave the club as a free agent. His exit will allow the club to make some valuable space in the attacking unit, potentially paving the way for them to attract new players.

While Diaz’s contract is over in the summer, Real Madrid, though, are facing a precarious situation as far as the Eden Hazard situation is concerned.

Just like Diaz, the Belgian international, who has been a major flop since his arrival from Chelsea, has no desire to leave the club and wants see out his contract that runs until 2024. The onus, therefore, will be on Real Madrid to get rid of not only Diaz but also Hazard in the coming summer.

Ancelotti could renew contract with Real Madrid if he wins the Champions League – report

The continuity of Carlo Ancelotti hinges on several factors and journalist Mario Cortegana, while writing for The Athletic, has confirmed that if Real Madrid do not sack him at the end of the season, the Italian will continue to serve the team at least until his current contract, which runs until 2024.

Furthermore, the report also states that Ancelotti could even be handed a contract extension if he leads the team to the UEFA Champions League triumph once again.

It is more than evident that Ancelotti’s Real Madrid future is far from certain. Ever since the managerial role at the Brazilian national team opened up, the 63-year-old is being pursued by the South American team.

Cortegana writes that even though Ancelotti is quite happy at Real Madrid, there remains a possibility that he will, indeed, accept the Brazil role if he were to leave the Spanish capital city as he sees this job as an appealing end to his managerial career.

At Real Madrid, he knows that he will have to keep winning trophies and this season, the La Liga honour is more or less lost. But with the possibility of winning the UEFA Champions League still open, Cortegana has reported that if the Italian does, in fact, succeed at winning the European crown, he might end up renewing his deal with the team.

At the moment, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) is trying to keep a respectful distance, but there is absolutely no denying the fact that they have made him their absolute priority. 

“Ancelotti is not only the players’ favourite but it seems the fans’ too,” said CBF president Ednaldo Rodrigues about Ancelotti.

“Everywhere I go in Brazil, in every stadium, he is the first name the supporters ask me about. They talk about him in a very affectionate way, in recognition of the exemplary work he has done in his career,” he added.

Ancelotti is aware that Brazil want him and Brazil know Ancelotti is ready to join, but everything hinges on what happens with Real Madrid this season.

If they end up winning the Champions League or even if Madrid decided to stick with him until his contract expires [2024], Brazil will be forced to look for alternatives. If not, one can expect the Italian to be the new head coach of the Seleçao.
