Carlo Ancelotti’s future is the talk of the town. Real Madrid’s poor performance domestically has put the manager under pressure and it is now unclear whether he will continue beyond June.

The story so far has been that the Italian tactician wishes to continue with the uncertainty looming at the administration’s end. Florentino Perez asks for just one more trophy this season from Ancelotti and failure to do so could see the end of the Italian in Madrid.

According to reports from Josep Pedrerol, Real Madrid’s relationship with Ancelotti is excellent. However, the club will allow him to leave if he asks to part ways before the end of his contract, which expires in 2024.

The veteran coach is said to see the club as his priority. However, things could change with the entry of the Brazilian national team.

The Selecao have Ancelotti as their prime candidate to take over the reins in the summer and continue to wait and gauge his situation.

Recently, the president of CBF talked about the same and highlighted the approach they would take to bring the Merengues’ tactician to Brazil.

Further, Ancelotti’s own players at Real Madrid have publicly spoken of the probability of the move taking place. Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes hinted that the manager wished to take up the new challenge while ex-Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro refused to do so.

If Ancelotti wishes to continue in his job at Real Madrid, however, every game from here on in the UCL and Copa del Rey becomes a final. The men in white can afford no more slip-ups for both the competitions they remain alive are in knockout formats.

Los Blancos take on Barcelona in the second leg of the Spanish Cup semifinal early in April. Soon after, the European Champions will host Chelsea in the UCL quarter-final first leg before travelling to Stamford Bridge later in April for the second leg.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report



Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.

According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.

The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.

The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.

There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.

Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.

Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
