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 youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
