Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is willing to listen to the offer of coaching the Brazil national team.

According to Bruno Andrade, Ancelotti has been approached by the Brazil football federation and is willing to listen to their offer.

Meanwhile, former Brazil and Real Madrid legend Ronaldo Nazario could help to convince the Italian coach.

The South American side are planning to meet the year-old in Spain.

It is worth mentioning here that Tite left Brazil as head coach after the five-time champions were eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2022 after a loss to Croatia in the quarter-finals.

Croatia beat Brazil 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 in the quarter-final to qualify for the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup.

After Brazil's shocking loss, head coach Tite had left the role.

Speaking less than two hours after their defeat, Tite declared that it was "the end of my cycle," and that Brazil will reassemble in time for the World Cup in 2026.

Following this, former Real Madrid coach and legendary player Zinedine Zidane was approached by the side to be Tite's successor. However, the Frenchman denied.
