Italian tactician Carlo Ancelotti is a wanted man, with three clubs reported as being keen to snap him up for next season.

According to French daily Le Parisien, Ancelotti is wanted by Manchester City and Liverpool from the English Premier League, while Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen for him to succeed Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

Ancelotti is currently in charge of Paris Saint-Germain and, though his contract expires on 30th June, it contains a clause allowing that to be extended for a further year if the side finish in the top three of Ligue 1.

With PSG top of the Ligue 1 table and having secured a 2-1 win in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie against Valencia, the Italian’s stock is soaring.

And he has his suitors.


In England, Roberto Mancini is presiding over the loss of Manchester City’s Premier League title, while at Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers has so far failed to make the Reds anything resembling top four contenders.

Real Madrid meanwhile have fallen 16 points behind Barcelona in La Liga, with speculation the current campaign could be Jose Mourinho’s last in charge.

While Ancelotti has struck a happy note at the Parc des Princes, he will be gratified to know his work is appreciated elsewhere.
