The news of Carlo Ancelotti’s decision to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season is well known by now. With the Brazilian National Team willing to throw the kitchen sink to appoint him as their next head coach, it was always coming.

However, it has also been reported that no official announcement of the same will be made until January. The Italian tactician wishes to focus on the job at hand and remains completely committed to the project in Madrid.

The news remaining unofficial, however, appears to have had no impact on Rodrygo’s statement when asked about Ancelotti’s future earlier this week as revealed by MARCA.

The youngster spoke openly about the potential appointment of Ancelotti as the Brazil manager in the future, saying:

“I know Ancelotti is Brazil’s plan A, the president is counting on him and so are we. Having him in the national team will be very important, I’m sure he’s going to teach us a lot.”

The 22-year-old is currently on duty with the National Team and is under the tutelage of Ramon Menezes, the interim coach. While he had no role to play against Senegal, he was on point in Brazil’s match against Guinea last weekend and even scored a goal on the night.

Rodrygo provided nine goals and eight assists for Real Madrid in La Liga last season. In that duration, he racked up close to 1.5 key passes and three shots per game in addition to creating ten big chances for Ancelotti’s men.

The youngster has grown leaps and bounds in the two seasons he has played under Ancelotti. And he will be hoping to continue benefiting from the Italian should he take over the Brazil job next year as expected.

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.
