Why Real Madrid will snub FIFA’s invitation to Club World Cup – Ancelotti

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has explained why the LaLiga giants will refuse to play in FIFA’s expanded Club World Cup next season.

The competition is billed for the United States at the end of next season.

A total of 32 teams from across the world have been invited.

Ancelotti, who guided Real to a double of La Liga and the Champions League this season, claims that FIFA have offered around €20million for their participation.

According to the Italian, Real will not be the only team rejecting FIFA’s offer.

“FIFA forgets that the teams will not participate in the new Club World Cup.

“A single Real Madrid match is worth €20million and FIFA wants to give us that amount for the entire tournament.

“We will decline the invitation,” Ancelotti told Il Giornale.
