Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti could sensationally set to become the new head coach of the Brazilian national team.
The experienced Italian’s future at the Bernabeu is under threat after Los Blancos lost their La Liga title to bitter rivals Barcelona and were dumped out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage, losing 5-1 on aggregate to Manchester City.
Ancelotti set to sign for Selecao?
At 63, Brazil would be the first national team that Ancelotti has managed after 28 years in club football following his retirement from playing in 1992.
According to the Athletic’s Mario Cortegana however, the Brazilian FA are still attempting to convince the Italian to uproot his family in Spain and move to South America following the conclusion of the La Liga season next weekend.
Brazil have been without a permanent manager since the departure of coach Tite after Brazil’s quarter-final exit of the World Cup in Qatar last December at the hands of Croatia and see Ancelotti firmly as their first choice.
