Carlo Ancelotti has renewed his commitment to Real Madrid by signing a contract extension until June 2026, quashing rumors of his potential move to manage the Brazil national team in 2024.

During his tenure at Real Madrid, Ancelotti has secured an impressive 10 trophies across two stints, including two Champions League titles, two Club World Cups, two UEFA Super Cups, a La Liga title, two Copa del Rey trophies, and a Spanish Super Cup.

Despite rumors fueled by his failure to win the Spanish league or Champions League last season, Ancelotti’s new deal ends speculation about his future and potential replacements like Bayer Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso and Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi. Ancelotti is noted for being the only manager with four European Cups to his name and the first to win the top five European league titles.

Previously, the Brazilian FA, under then-president Ednaldo Rodrigues, had expressed interest in Ancelotti, and Brazil had appointed Fernando Diniz of Fluminense on a 12-month contract, coinciding with the end of Ancelotti’s former contract. Real Madrid currently shares the top spot in La Liga with Girona, both teams having 45 points after 18 games.

Extending Carlo Ancelotti’s contract is a strategic move for Real Madrid, reinforcing stability and continuity at the club. Ancelotti’s impressive record of 10 trophies, including two Champions League titles, underlines his tactical expertise and ability to thrive under pressure.

His leadership maintains a winning culture, crucial for a club with Real Madrid’s stature and aspirations.

The extension also dispels uncertainty around the team’s management, allowing players and staff to focus on performance without distraction. Additionally, Ancelotti’s deep understanding of the club’s ethos and his proven track record in European competitions positions Real Madrid favorably for future successes both domestically and in Europe.
