Tottenham fans react to reports that Carlo Ancelotti is about to leave Everton - and join Real Madrid

Real Madrid are closing in on Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti in the ‘next few hours’, according to reports. Real Madrid are about to choose Ancelotti above numerous other, available managers – according to Spanish newspaper Marca. Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to the reports regarding Ancelotti.

Ancelotti, 61, could be about to return to Real Madrid with an announcement expected this week. The Italian has failed to deliver Everton into European football despite a brilliant start to the campaign, with a shocking run of home form preventing the Toffees. Now, Ancelotti is closing in on an Everton exit.

Marca say that Real Madrid are about to confirm Ancelotti’s return in the next few hours. The experienced Italian gaffer spent two years in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu between 2013 and 2015, and is now set for a somewhat surprising return. It shakes up the managerial merry-go-round.

Can Ancelotti moving from Everton to Madrid affect Tottenham?

Yes. Tottenham are being linked with both Antonio Conte and Mauricio Pochettino, both of whom are also being considered by Madrid. But with Madrid raiding Everton for the return of Ancelotti, that opens up the futures of both Conte and Pochettino. It also sees Everton need a gaffer.

The Toffees are being linked with the likes of Eddie Howe, Frank Lampard and Nuno Espirito Santo – while some fans want Conte. But Tottenham fans have responded to the reports that Ancelotti is off to Madrid, and many believe that it could boost the North London club’s chances of hiring Pochettino.
