Carlo Ancelotti extends contract with Real Madrid until 2026Carlo Ancelotti has extended his contract as Real Madrid coach until 2026, the La Liga club said on Friday.

Ancelotti has been at Real since 2021, having previously managed the club from 2013 to 2015. The Italian has won one league title with Real, along with two Champions League trophies and two Club World Cups.

“Real Madrid CF and Carlo Ancelotti have agreed to extend our coach’s contract until 30 June 2026,” Real said in a statement.

His contract was due to expire in 2024, and this extension ends speculation that Ancelotti would take over as manager of Brazil. In March of this year, the then president of the Brazilian football federation, Ednaldo Rodrigues, said that Ancelotti was his main target for the position of national-team coach.
