Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, is set for a shock move to replace Tite as Brazil’s head coach.
Brazil’s exit from the World Cup round of 16 at the hands of Croatia put an end to Tite’s time as the Selecao coach.
Tite experienced his last game in charge of the Brazil national team a few days ago after Croatia defeated his team in a penalty shootout.
According to UOL Esporte, Brazil wants Ancelotti to be in charge of the ‘Selecao’ in the coming years.
Ancelotti has already been contacted by the Brazilian Confederation last October.
The Italian postponed a possible negotiation until Tite left the post definitively after the 2022 World Cup.
The former Chelsea and Bayern Munich gaffer is clear that his priority is to finish the season with Real Madrid and, after the summer, to take over the Brazilian national team if he reaches an agreement with the confederation.
Ancelotti’s current contract with Real Madrid will expire in June 2024, when he will have to negotiate with the La Liga champions if he wants to leave next summer.
In the event of an agreement between Ancelotti, Real Madrid and Brazil, the Selecao will have to find an interim coach for the matches they have before the Italian is released.
