Over the past few days, there have been various rumours regarding the future of Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

It has been suggested that Los Blancos want to offer him a new two-year contract and wish to close the chapter by Christmas.

Meanwhile, the Brazil Football Confederation (CBF), who are very much aware of the recent renewal speculations surrounding Ancelotti, remain calm and confident about him taking over the national team next year.

Brazil ‘tense but calm’ with Ancelotti’s situation

Indeed, according to journalist Jorge C Picon, there is a tense calm in the highest circles of the CBF with regard to Ancelotti and his current situation.

Calm because they remain confident that Ancelotti will be in charge of the Selecao sooner rather than later. In private, they even go as far as saying that there is already a pre-agreement in place with the 64-year-old, even though the manager has shot down signing anything.

But there has also been tension because Ancelotti is tempted to stay in Madrid. The Italian tactician recently admitted his desire to continue in the Spanish capital, stating that he would wait until the last minute for a contract offer.

The report insists that given the non-stop rumours and speculations, there now appears to be an urgency, especially on Real Madrid’s part to seek a resolution to Ancelotti’s future, one way or the other.

Even though the manager remains committed to Real Madrid, the idea of coaching Brazil appeals to him. He is proud and excited about the possibility of managing the five-time world champions.

As such, Brazil’s insistence on Ancelotti is motivating Real Madrid to move quickly. The Merengues are happy with the start to the season under the Italian – 15 wins in 18 games, top of La Liga and the UEFA Champions League Group C, with qualification secured for the next stage.

Ancelotti’s good management of the dressing room and the evolution of the young players has also convinced the board to move forward with a renewal proposal, as he can start negotiating with other parties from January 1.

Real Madrid want to resolve this issue as soon as possible so that the squad is not distracted from its objectives and as such negotiations are underway.

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
