French newspaper Le Parisien claims that Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti, have reached a verbal agreement for next season. The Italian manager would replace Jose Mourinho on the ‘Merengue’ bench.
Spanish media says Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez likes Ancelotti and has always had him in mind to coach the ‘White club’ sooner or later. Ancelotti’s situation in PSG is not clear, and although he has a signed contract until June 2014 with the French club, he could leave at the end of the season
Le Parisien says Ancelotti is calm because he has enough offers for next season in case he leaves PSG. According to the French daily, he has been contacted by Liverpool and Manchester City. But Real Madrid, who already had him on the agenda in 2009, would be the preferred destination for the Italian if he does not continue in the PSG, although the team is currently leading the French league. When asked about his future by French daily L'Equipe he was not worried: "If the club is not happy with me, I'll have no problem to leave," Ancelotti said.
Ancelotti started his coaching career as an assistant coach for the Italian national team under Arrigo Sacchi in 1992 and in 1995 went on to coach Reggiana, Parma, Juventus, Milan, Chelsea and now PSG. His most successful time was with Milan from 2001 to 2009 when he two Champions League titles, a Club World Cup, two European Super Cups and one Serie A title. With Chelsea he won a Premier League title, an FA Cup and a Community Shield.
