Real Madrid's head coach, Carlo Ancelotti, expressed his desire to remain with the club beyond 2026 after signing a two-year contract extension last week.
The 64-year-old Italian, who returned to Real in 2021, has a successful history with the club, securing one league title, two Champions League trophies, and two Club World Cups during his coaching stints.
Ancelotti stated that he might continue coaching beyond 2026, expressing his ambition to stay at Real Madrid and continue his tenure into 2027 and 2028.
Addressing reporters ahead of a match against Mallorca, Ancelotti emphasized that the decision to extend his contract was based on the club's satisfaction with their collaborative work.
Despite being linked with a potential move to coach Brazil's national team, Ancelotti clarified that staying with Real Madrid was his top priority.
He mentioned feeling proud to be considered for the Brazil role but emphasized that everything depended on his situation with Real Madrid and that staying at the club was what he wanted.
Real Madrid, currently leading LaLiga on goal difference ahead of Girona after 18 games, sees Ancelotti's contract extension as a vote of confidence in his coaching abilities.
The Italian coach remains focused on achieving success with Real Madrid and has expressed his long-term commitment, hoping to continue leading the team in the coming years.
