Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that he would like to stay at the club till the end of his current contract, which expires in the summer of 2024.
The Italian has been linked with a host of other jobs and that includes the Brazil national team role. While speculation has been constant and Real Madrid are not having a great season in La Liga, the ex-Napoli boss has revealed that he wants to honour his contract at the Bernabeu.
Ancelotti spoke to Rai Radio 1 (via Di Marzio) and he spoke about his future at Real Madrid: “There is a beautiful saying that is right for the case: the wind carries away the chatter. And that’s right, I have a contract until June 30, 2024 and I’d like to respect it . It’s a very demanding season and there are too many games .
“There was a World Cup in the middle with 15 of our players involved, then the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia, the Club World Cup in Morocco in February.”
Ancelotti also gave his views about Napoli and their upcoming Champions League clash against Milan, saying: “It will be a very balanced match . Would it be nice to meet again in Istanbul? Yes for Real, I think also for Milan, but everyone wants to get to Istanbul”.
Ancelotti’s Real are still in the Champions League after having beaten Milan and since atleast one Italian team will play in the Champions League semi-final, there is a possibility of him taking on an Italian side later in the competition.
