As we approach the halfway point of the season, the future of Carlo Ancelotti has been one of the points of contention.

It has been widely reported recently that Ancelotti is favoured to continue at Santiago Bernabeu beyond 2024, even though the club are anticipating a summer of change.

However, it is no secret that the Brazilian national team are waiting in the wings, ready to take advantage of any opportunity to hire the Real Madrid coach at the end of the season.

Ancelotti has an agreement with Brazil

A recent report from Mario Cortegana has offered an update on the future of Ancelotti, suggesting that the Real Madrid boss has some sort of agreement in place with Brazil.

This comes after reports emerged claiming the Brazilian football federation have guarantees that Ancelotti will join as the head coach after the end of the season.

Cortegana insists that there is some kind of written agreement between the two parties, but it is not understood to be a binding deal.

CBF president Ednaldo Rodrigues has spoken several times about the federation’s interest in Ancelotti and as January approaches, the Italian will soon be free to negotiate with other parties.

Ancelotti, for his part, has remained coy about his future and has sometimes distanced himself from speculation linking him to Brazil.

Real Madrid yet to offer a renewal

Real Madrid, meanwhile, have yet to make a decision on the future of their head coach. The club want to offer a two-year deal but it comes with various strings attached.

Ancelotti has constantly insisted that his priority remains Real Madrid, but due to a lack of a concrete proposal, the Italian’s future continues to hang in the air.

With Brazil lurking, Los Blancos could seek a quick resolution to the matter.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

Despite these challenges, one crucial factor continues to give Real Madrid an edge in the race for Yoro’s signature.

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
