The Selecao are without a permanent manager following the departure of Tite, but according to the goalkeeper, one of the greatest coaches in history could take over the Selecao.

Brazil are still without a manager following the departure of Tite in the wake of their 2022 FIFA World Cup exit. The 61-year-old, who took over the Selecao back in 2016, stepped down from his role after the South American giants crashed out in the quarterfinals yet again, this time on penalties against Croatia.

Since then, a host of names have been linked with the role, including Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, who recently signed a new contract at the Etihad Stadium. Ederson, who was one of a few household names to be called up to the national team for this international break, even joked about the idea of Pep taking over the Canarinho.

"I talked to him, joked with him, but he said it was not a possibility, because he has a contract with Man City and he just renewed for two more seasons. He told me that there was no chance at all," Ederson said during a press conference ahead of Brazil's friendly against Morocco.

However, the Cityzens goalkeeper surprised everyone by candidly speaking about one of the favorites for the vacant role. According to the Premier League sensation, Carlo Ancelotti, one of the greatest managers in the history of the game, could be named the Brazil national team's new head coach.

The Italian has been linked with the South American giants before. Not long after Tite stepped down, rumors emerged claiming that the Italian was open to accepting the role but would only enter formal talks once the current season ended out of respect for Real Madrid.

Ederson admitted Carletto could replace Tite and confessed to having conversations with Eder Militao, Casemiro, and Vinicius Jr. — all of whom have worked under the Italian — over this possibility.

While the league race looks to be over for Ancelotti's Real Madrid side, Los Blancos remain in the UEFA Champions League. As a result, the Manchester City goalkeeper joked that his club should hurry up and eliminate the Spanish giants from Europe in order to speed up Carlo's departure from Santiago Bernabeu.

"There is a big possibility that he [Ancelotti] comes," the 29-year-old said, as per ESPN.

"Just look at his CV. We will know shortly whether he will be here or not," Ederson said. "I hope we can have a new coach quickly. I feel the anticipation too because there's too much speculation. Is it a Brazilian or a foreign coach? We are also living that phase of anxiety," the former Benfica shot-stopper added.

Ancelotti's future in Madrid is under doubt, partly due to their recent struggles against Barcelona in La Liga. As a result, Carlo, who has won trophies in Italy, Spain, England, Germany, and France, could leave the Bernabeu soon.

Given that the Italian has worked with several of Brazil's key players, this could be a match made in heaven. However, the Selecao remain under the helm of Ramon Menezes for now, who was appointed in an interim role until a permanent successor to Tite is identified.
