Real Madrid is seeking a new coach as part of a strategic move to revitalize the team, with Brighton’s manager Roberto De Zerbi emerging as a top candidate to succeed Carlo Ancelotti, reports SPORT.

In talks with the 44-year-old Italian, Real Madrid is attracted to De Zerbi’s ability to work with young talents, a quality highly valued by the club. Negotiations are underway, reflecting the club’s intent to secure De Zerbi for the upcoming season.

The envisioned scenario at the new Santiago Bernabéu involves building a team around emerging talents such as Vinicius Jr. (23), Rodrygo (22), Eduardo Camavinga (21), Tchouaméni (23), Jude Bellingham, Fede Valverde (25), and Éder Militao (25). These players are seen as the future backbone of the team for the next few years.

The squad expansion plan includes Turkish talent Arda Güler (18) and Endrick, a promising striker from Palmeiras, set to join in July. Juni Calafat, head of international football, known for talent scouting, is reportedly working on two additional operations in the Brazilian market.

Real Madrid’s ideal scenario also includes the potential acquisition of Kylian Mbappé, who turns 25 in December, despite repeated denials from the club.

De Zerbi, known for his success in nurturing new talents and reviving players, faces the challenge of maximizing the substantial investments made in recent seasons. Notable among these investments are players like Tchouaméni and Bellingham, for whom the club spent over 180 million in transfers.

As Ancelotti’s departure looms, with indications of him joining the Brazilian national team, Real Madrid is gearing up for a potential new era under De Zerbi.

The CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation) has reportedly leaked an agreement, suggesting Ancelotti could lead the Seleção from June, potentially starting with the Copa América in the USA. Florentino Pérez has already decided not to renew Ancelotti’s contract.

The future of Real Madrid hangs in the balance, poised for a transformation under the potential leadership of Roberto De Zerbi. The club looks to blend experienced stars with promising young talents in a bid to reclaim its past glory.
