A report from the Mirror is saying Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are already putting plans in place to bring in erstwhile Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti with claims that their manager Pep Guardiola is heading to Manchester City next summer.
The Bavarian giants have earmarked erstwhile Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti – who has been without a job since leaving the helm at the Spanish Capital – as the man to replace Guardiola who continues to stall over talks regarding a new contract.
Guardiola’s current deal at the Allianz Arena runs out at the end of this season and the Spaniard’s reluctance to extend it has prompted the belief that he will be on his way to City after three years in the Bundesliga.
As per the Mirror, Bayern have now given Guardiola the New Year deadline. And this could mean Chelsea – who are looking for a replacement for boss Jose Mourinho – could now swoop for the Spanish boss.
Ancelotti was touted to take over as Liverpool boss after the sacking of Brendan Rodgers, but Reds opted for Jurgen Klopp instead.
However, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are also targeting Ancelotti, but Bayern can trump them if they move quick enough to lure the Italian to the Allianz Arena.
Chelsea’s style of play could be changed to suit Guardiola’s, should the Spanish boss move to Stamford Bridge. The bald-headed Spaniard is known for a silky style of play which catches the eyes of fans and pundits alike, and with him the Blues should be rest-assured of a whole lot of trophies.
