Deadline given to Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti has a year left on his contract with Real Madrid, and the Italian has been linked with a move to coach the Brazilian national team.

According to a report from Marca, Brazilian Football Federation are willing to wait for Carlo Ancelotti’s response for the job offer until the summer of 2024.

Brazil are offering Ancelotti a chance to take over the Brazil national team once the Copa America ends.

Ancelotti has vowed to honour his contract with Real Madrid, which will end in 2024.

When recently asked about Carlo Ancelotti, Brazil FA chairman, Ednaldo Rodrigues said: “If I were in his place, with a contract in force, I would not detract from the company that hired me to do that either.

“He (Ancelotti) is a coach who has that vision and has the courage to place new talents to play. Therefore, without detracting from any other coach, whom we respect – and Brazil has many coaches whom we appreciate because they are competent, we are still waiting.

“We hope to be able to have a clearer position already in June and that we can speak with greater conviction.”
