Ederson has appeared to 'leak' Brazil's next manager having talked him up during a press conference ahead of his national team's friendly against Morocco.
Ederson is currently away with Brazil for the international break as they face 2022 World Cup semi-finalist Morocco on Saturday.
Under-20 team coach Ramon Menezes will be in charge of the match following the departure of Tite, who left his role following Brazil's defeat to Croatia in Qatar.
And it seems a veteran boss who has managed some of the biggest clubs in world football will succeed Tite.
That's according to Ederson, who dropped a big hint that Carlo Ancelotti will be Brazil's next manager.
"I was discussing this with Casemiro, Vinicius Junior, [Eder] Militao," he said during a press conference. "There is a big possibility that he comes."
He joked: "We will try to eliminate Real Madrid so that Ancelotti can come to Brazil as quick as possible!"
The Manchester City goalkeeper said he and his international colleagues see the Italian as "an exceptional coach, everyone in his group likes him, a victorious career."
The 29-year-old added: "Just look at his CV. We will know shortly whether he will be here or not.
"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."
Ancelotti is still under contract at Real Madrid as his deal runs through until the end of next season.
Delivering the La Liga title this season appears unlikely with his side 12 points behind league leaders Barcelona, but they remain in the Champions League.
Ancelotti, 63, began his managerial career on the international scene as he was the Italy assistant manager from 1992 to 1995.
He then went onto manage the likes of Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich to name but a few.
