Ancelotti, 64, has already agreed to take over as manager of the Brazil national team next year.

The Italian will leave the LaLiga club for South America once his contract expires at the end of the season.

That leaves Los Blancos with the task of replacing the club’s two-time Champions League winner.

And Spanish outlet Sport claims that Brighton boss De Zerbi has been contacted about the soon-to-be-vacant job.

It is said the Italian manager is a “goal” of club president Florentino Perez.

The 44-year-old has been a great success since he landed the job at the Amex last season.

De Zerbi took over from Graham Potter who had left the club for his ill-fated spell at Chelsea.

And the former Shakhtar Donetsk boss immediately led the Seagulls to Europa League qualification for the first time in their history.


It is claimed his work with Brighton’s young talents is one reason he has caught the eye.

And De Zerbi would inherit a young crop of stars such as Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Arda Guler, De Zerbi if he got the job.

Brighton demanded a record fee from Chelsea when letting Potter leave and it is likely they will be tough negotiators when it comes to De Zerbi.

The Italian’s contract in Sussex runs until 2026 and the club are already keen on offering him improved terms.

Meanwhile, Los Blancos have also been linked to former Liverpool star Xabi Alonso as a potential replacement for Ancelotti.

The Spaniard is currently impressing in charge of Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
