The Brazilian Football Confederation has denied an ESPN Brazil report that Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has given the OK to becoming the new coach of the Brazil men's national team.

Brazil have been looking for a successor for Tite, who left the job after being beaten by Croatia in the quarterfinals of the Qatar World Cup in December.

The experienced Ancelotti -- who has been in charge of Real Madrid since 2021 -- has coached clubs such as Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich in a 28-year managerial career.

Sources told ESPN Brazil reporter Bruno Vicari that the Italian has given the green light to taking over Brazil, in what would be his first international appointment, this summer.
