Report: Real Madrid will announce Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti as manager in “next few hours”
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is being linked with a sensational return to Spanish club Real Madrid.
According to Marca, Madrid are close to bringing the 61-year-old back to the Bernabeu for a second stint in charge of the La Liga giants.
It is claimed that Madrid’s announcement will come “immediately” and that it may even be within the next few hours.
The report explains that Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte have been in the running, but they’ve turned to a manager that was in charge of them between 2013-15. The Italian won the Champions League during that time.
For Everton fans, this news has come out of nowhere.
His side ended the Premier League season 10th in the table, and there was major disappointment after missing out on European football despite being in the running for most of the year.
Ancelotti leaving for Real Madrid will crush Everton supporters
The Merseyside club fell short of their aims this campaign, but Everton fans are fully aware they’ve got a special man at the helm. However, if Ancelotti goes this summer, it will be a massive backwards step.
He’s been building a squad together since his arrival in 2019. His presence helped sign the likes of James Rodriguez and Allan last summer.
There is going to be major panic at Goodison Park if these Madrid rumours turn out to be true today.
The £230,000-a-week Italian boss has won the hearts of Everton fans, but ditching them midway through a project is going to leave a sour taste.
Ancelotti has made a big deal about how he’s in it or the long haul. Unfortunately, Madrid may be the ones to tempt him away.
