Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti Set to Move to Brazil

Who Will Lead Brazil to the 2026 World Cup? After their premature exit in Qatar, the world football giant is going from rumor to rumor. Carlo Ancelotti's name has been mentioned time and again. However, the coach of Real Madrid doesn't want to abandon his club. Now, it seems a solution has been found.

According to Ednaldo Rodrigues, President of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), Real Madrid's coach Carlo Ancelotti will become the national coach of the Brazilian national football team starting from the summer of 2024. Rodrigues made this statement on Tuesday to the Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo, following the announcement of Fernando Diniz's one-year commitment to the CBF.

"We don't consider him an interim coach; he is the national coach. Diniz will facilitate the transition to Ancelotti, who will take over for the Copa América," said Rodrigues. Diniz, who will continue coaching Fluminense in Rio de Janeiro's top league, is set to be introduced in a press conference today.

Ancelotti's contract with Madrid expires on June 30th next summer, which means a solution must be found with Real. Neither the 64-year-old Italian nor the Royal Whites have confirmed a move to Brazil yet. However, reports of Ancelotti's appointment surfaced as early as June. Legally, Ancelotti cannot sign with the Brazilian Football Confederation until next January, six months before his contract with Real Madrid expires. Nevertheless, the CBF relies on the alleged verbal commitment from the star coach, as reported by the Spanish newspaper "Marca."

Contract for 2023/204 untouchable

The Copa América will take place from June 20th to July 14th, 2024, in the United States. The Champions League final is scheduled for June 1st, and the Spanish La Liga ends on May 26th. Following the quarterfinal defeat against Croatia in the World Cup in Qatar, the former national coach Tite announced his resignation last December. Afterward, U-20 national coach Ramon Menezes took charge of the Selecao.

In June, the Spanish sports newspaper "AS," citing Ancelotti's surroundings, reported that while the Italian had spoken with the Brazilians, he had made it clear that his contract with Real Madrid for this season was untouchable, and he needed to focus entirely on his work in Madrid. Therefore, he intended to discuss a possible move no earlier than January. The newspaper stated that there had been no prior commitment or agreement, neither oral nor written. Furthermore, Ancelotti was reportedly annoyed by the federation's portrayal as if he had already accepted the offer.
