Throughout the 2023/24 season, there were persistent rumors about Carlo Ancelotti potentially leaving Real Madrid. Reports suggested that the Italian could take charge of the Brazilian national team. These rumors gained traction with the impressive results of Bayer Leverkusen, managed by former Los Blancos player Xabi Alonso.

Currently, these rumors have subsided as Carlo Ancelotti has extended his contract with the Spanish champions until 2026, and Alonso has stated that he will remain at the helm of the German champions for at least another year.

However, according to Diario AS, Ancelotti might leave Real Madrid next year, but this concerns his son, Davide Ancelotti, who has been his assistant for the past eight years. Davide has worked alongside his father at Bayern Munich, Napoli, Everton, and, naturally, at Real Madrid.

Davide Ancelotti's excellent performance as an assistant has attracted interest from several clubs. He had already received an offer from Sevilla, which he declined. It is now reported that Davide has instructed his agent to reject all offers for the next twelve months, after which he will consider discussions about potential head coaching roles.

Davide Ancelotti's reputation has been steadily rising over the past few years, and he is likely to embark on a managerial career without significant hurdles, especially given his experience working with his father, a legend in football management.
