The Brazilian selection is not giving up on attracting the legendary Italian coach. But the latter is expected to stay at Real Madrid for one more season.
Will we see Carlo Ancelotti on the Brazil bench? This is what the federation (CBF) hopes, and she has been negotiating for months in this direction. Ancelotti, 63, has continued to say he is happy at Real Madrid, where he made a successful comeback in the summer of 2021 with a Champions League title a year ago. Despite a more difficult current season (defeat in C12nd in La Liga …), the Italian technician has the confidence of his leaders, the newspaper says brand .
Ancelotti wants to stay, Real want to keep him. But that is not enough to discourage the CBF. The latter would be ready to wait until 2024 to welcome the coach who worked for Chelsea, AC Milan and PSG, but who has never led a national team. Brazil would accept him only coming after Copa America 2024 (June 14 – July 14).
