Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that the Spanish giants intend to reject an invitation to play at next year’s Club World Cup.

The competition is set to be expanded to 32 teams and will be played across four weeks in the US next summer following the conclusion of the 2024-25 season.

Madrid was one of the most anticipated teams to compete, having won the competition five times in the previous nine years. However, Ancelotti is adamant that his team would not participate since FIFA has not offered them enough money, and he expects that other teams will do the same. 

‘FIFA forgets that the clubs and players will not participate in that tournament,’ Ancelotti said in an interview with Il Giornale, as quoted by Relevo.
