Potential Shake-Up at Old Trafford: Carlo Ancelotti Linked to Manchester United
Speculation is rife at Old Trafford as reports suggest that Manchester United has extended an offer to Real Madrid’s current manager, Carlo Ancelotti, potentially paving the way for a change in leadership.
Despite Erik ten Hag’s efforts, Manchester United’s performance this season has been less than stellar, currently occupying the sixth spot in the Premier League.
The club’s exit from the Carabao Cup and a precarious Champions League position have intensified discussions about the managerial role.
Ancelotti, currently managing Real Madrid, is nearing the end of his contract, and rumors of a potential move to lead Brazil’s national team have circulated.
However, the latest twist suggests that Manchester United is actively pursuing ‘Don Carlo’ to return to the Premier League.
Spanish journalist Juanma Castano shared this intriguing development during a recent appearance on Cope’s Tiempo de Juego (via Daily Express).
The 64-year-old Ancelotti boasts an impressive coaching history, including guiding Chelsea to a league and FA Cup double in 2010 and steering Everton to consecutive mid-table finishes.
Castano also noted the potential impact of Ancelotti’s arrival on specific players at Carrington, with Casemiro being highlighted as one who might welcome the experienced manager.
Casemiro has previously thrived under Ancelotti’s guidance, securing two Champions League titles, a league medal, and a Copa del Rey.
