Last week reports emerged regarding discussions between Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid over a potential contract renewal. The latest report from Revelo, suggest that a deal could be wrapped up before Christmas. Carlo Ancelotti’s first priority has always been Madrid, despite the interest from the Brazilian federation to head their men’s national team. Ancelotti would welcome the opportunity to continue his legacy at the biggest club in the world.

In the summer many media outlets in South America suggested a deal with Brazil was done for this upcoming summer (2024), but Carlo has always said that his focus is on the “here and now” and that no contract had been signed. Madrid is the Ancelotti’s first choice and he will wait until the last moment for an offer from the club. Real Madrid reportedly feel confident that a renewal will be agreed quickly.

Carlo Ancelotti’s management of the team, and particularly of the young players, has been outstanding. The club recognize his efforts and his ability to work within a transition and integrate a club policy at sporting level. The goal is to keep Carlo, his son (Davide), and the entire coaching staff on board for another two seasons.
