Carlo Ancelotti has extended his contract with Real Madrid until 2026, thereby putting an end to the rumors suggesting he would take charge of Brazil’s national team.

Carlo Ancelotti, the esteemed Italian coach, has committed his future to Real Madrid by signing a new contract that will see him remain at the La Liga club until June 2026. This announcement comes as a relief to Real Madrid fans, who have witnessed Ancelotti guide the team to an impressive ten trophies across his two separate stints as head coach.

Among his illustrious collection of honours are two Champions League titles, two Club World Cups, two UEFA Super Cups, one La Liga title, two Copa de Rey trophies, and one Spanish Super Cup. Ancelotti’s success on the European stage is particularly noteworthy, as he is the only manager to have triumphed in four European Cups. Furthermore, he holds the distinction of being the first manager to win all five major European league titles.

Speculation had been rife regarding Ancelotti’s future, with rumors suggesting that he could depart for the Brazil national team job. His previous contract was set to expire in the summer of 2024, coinciding with the conclusion of Fluminense coach Fernando Diniz’s 12-month contract with Brazil. However, Brazil ultimately appointed Diniz, leading to Ancelotti’s decision to extend his stay at Real Madrid.

The notion of Diniz serving as an interim coach for the national team was dismissed by Rodrigues, who stated that Diniz’s game plan closely aligns with that of Ancelotti, who will take over at Copa America. This clarification further solidifies Ancelotti’s commitment to Real Madrid and dispels any doubts about his future.

Last season, Ancelotti’s failure to secure the Spanish league title or the Champions League fueled intense speculation about his tenure at Real Madrid. Names such as Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso and Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi were mentioned as potential successors. However, Ancelotti’s decision to renew his contract for an additional two seasons has effectively put an end to these rumors.

Real Madrid supporters can now breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that their beloved coach will continue to lead the team towards further success. With Ancelotti’s proven track record and wealth of experience, the future looks bright for Real Madrid under his guidance.
