Real Madrid believe that Carlo Ancelotti will most likely stay on as the manager beyond this season despite his links to Brazil, according to journalist Sergio Santos.

There appears to be no end to the discussions around the Italian’s future beyond this season, and the recurrent talks and updates on the same certainly do not make his job easier.

Brazil’s aggressive pursuit of Ancelotti

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) have been running after Ancelotti’s services for a long time now.

They see him as the only worthy candidate to take the Brazilian National Team forward and have been pushing for his appointment ever since Tite stepped down.

After a long battle, the South American board conceded defeat in signing him this summer but believe that the manager is committed to joining them after his contract with Real Madrid ends.

CBF president, Ednaldo Rodriguez, announced Ancelotti’s arrival while announcing Fernando Diniz as the team’s new manager for the next year.

“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.”

Rodriguez’s statement opened the doors to several Selecao players confirming the same in their interviews, including Real Madrid’s own stars like Eder Militao.

While Brazil are convinced that Ancelotti will arrive to take over the reins for Copa America 2024, Real Madrid are open to sticking with him for another year.

The Merengues are currently in transition and are building a squad to dominate football for the coming decade.

All their signings point to a long-term plan, and changing the manager midway would not be advisable.

As such, the report states Florentino Perez and the club hierarchy have complete faith in the coach and will continue to do so as long as positive results flow in. 

Ancelotti has signed no contract with Brazil assuring them of his services next season and he has always maintained that his heart lies in Real Madrid.

As his current employers, Real Madrid will always have the upper hand in ensuring his continuity for next season, and they are now open to doing so, if results go positively in the upcoming season.

However, the decision is completely in Carletto’s hands and will not be known with certainty until the summer of 2024.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
