The veteran manager might find a late start to coaching at the international level with Brazil.

Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly emerged among the main candidates to become Brazil’s new boss.

The Brazilian football federation (CBF) hope to replace Tite with a top-class manager as they plan to bounce back from their disappointing 2022 World Cup campaign.

Tite left the Selecao after their shock defeat against Croatia in the tournament’s quarter-finals. His resignation forces Brazil to hire a new manager ahead of the 2024 Copa America.

According to UOL, Ancelotti is a leading target to become Brazil’s new manager.

The speculations about the Italian boss have emerged shortly after Brazil’s last target, Pep Guardiola, signed a new deal at Manchester City.

CBF have vowed to decide on the national team’s new manager in January. However, UOL claims Brazilian officials made the first contact with Ancelotti back in October.

In August, Ancelotti said he will retire after leaving Real Madrid. But the possibility of taking over a national team might tempt him to accept Brazil’s offer.

“This stage at Real will end my career,” he confirmed. “After Los Blancos, I’ll stop.”

Ancelotti has coached ten different clubs across Europe. However, his only experience at the international level dates back to when he started his career as Italy’s assistant manager between 1992 and 1995.
