Despite assurances by Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez that coach Carlo Ancelotti will keep his job there are suggested the Italian could replace Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United at the end of the season.
With Ancelotti having come under fire recently after Real Madrid’s two losses in a row, reports have surfaced, suggesting that the Los Blancos boss could replace the Dutchman at Manchester United.
The Red Devils boss has also come under scrutiny after his team’s exit in the FA Cup, following their loss at home to rivals Arsenal, and it’s believed that the former Holland manager’s job is far from safe at Old Trafford.
While Van Gaal’s future will most likely come down to where United end up finishing in the league at the end of the season, it’s been reported that Carlo Ancelotti may be keen on a second spell in England – where he formerly managed Chelsea.
“The club has every faith in its players and coach. No matter what happens over the next few weeks, Ancelotti will still be the Real Madrid boss,” Perez said at a press conference last Thursday.
Van Gaal’s United are currently fourth on the table and only have UEFA Champions League to fight for, while Ancelotti’s team are one point behind Barcelona, and in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
