From the recent update, Real Madrid are actively searching for a replacement for current manager Carlo Ancelotti, with sources claiming that they have set their sights on Brighton and Hove Albion’s Roberto de Zerbi.
President Florentino Perez, who is determined to inject new vitality into the team’s dressing room, made the decision not to renew Ancelotti’s contract.
De Zerbi, who is now in charge of Brighton, caught Perez’s interest, and he views him as the perfect candidate to nurture the potential of Real Madrid’s youthful team. The club sees De Zerbi as a manager who is ready to take on top-tier challenges and compete for major titles.
The potential appointment coincides with Real Madrid’s ambitious summer plans, which include the arrival of Endrick Felipe and the rumoured signing of Kylian Mbappe.
Juni Calafat, the team’s head scout, is also said to be navigating deals for two skilled Brazilian players. Negotiations with De Zerbi are thought to be going on, marking a turning point in the Italian manager’s career.
While former Real Madrid player and Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso had been linked to the club, the reported contact with De Zerbi marks a new route for the club in their search for a dynamic and forward-thinking leader.
The football world will be watching for more news as the Spanish giants attempt to restructure their managerial setting.
