It was just a matter of time. Carlo Ancelotti spoke to La Republicca Sport and publicly said that he's negotiating a contract extension with Real Madrid. The Italian coach, who managed to win a double last season -- and La Décima, more importantly -- has built a solid and brilliant Real Madrid squad that's aiming to win La Liga this season.

I hope not to be remembered just because of La Décima. My contract ends in 2016 and we're already talking about an extension.

It has become quite evident that Ancelotti deserves that contract extension as a recognition for his efforts. Although lots of things can happen in football year after year, the Italian coach has made his case to stay with Real Madrid for a long time. Furthermore, there are no reasonable replacements, so Real Madrid could be in trouble if Ancelotti decides to walk away from the Spanish capital in 2016.
