While reports in Spain and Italy intensify towards a potential Carlo Ancelotti-departure from Real Madrid, the club have not ruled out the possibility of keeping Carlo Ancelotti for the upcoming season, club sources told Managing Madrid. Real Madrid's are holding different meetings to find out what happened since 2015 started, and the final decision will be made after that report is made, something that will happen over the next few days.

Ancelotti has the support of the hard core of Real's dressing room. Players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Toni Kroos or Luka Modric want to keep working with Ancelotti next season, and Real Madrid could give the Italian a chance to prove that this season's failure was due to injuries and a lack of depth on the roster.

If Real Madrid were to fire Carlo Ancelotti, Jürgen Klopp remains as the club's primary option to replace the Italian coach in Real's dressing room. Although several reports from Italy are suggesting that Los Blancos are very interested in signing Rafa Benítez, Klopp and Joachim Löw are ahead of him on Real's shortlist right now.
