Real Madrid and Ancelotti may have signed pre-contract agreement

Posted on May 20, 2013 by admin

The clear favourite to replace Jose Mourinho as the manager of Real Madrid is the Italian Carlo Ancelotti. According to the media, the deal is pretty much done and it is just a matter of details. There is a small problem, however, in the shape of his current team Paris Saint-Germain.

The French club have won the Ligue 1 title for the first time since 1994. That means that Ancelotti’s contract is automatically extended into next season. This measure was probably included in the contract to safeguard his job, but may now be used by PSG to block his transfer to Real Madrid.

They will, at least, not take his departure lying down. The president has suggested that Ancelotti has already signed a pre-contract agreement with Madrid, which would be against the rules. This came after Ancelotti held a meeting with some of the top brass and asked to be allowed to leave.

PSG are a rich club who want to progress and losing the man who has steered them towards that is, obviously, far from ideal. If Ancelotti is determined to come to the Bernabeu, though, there is little they can do to stop him. It will simply be a matter of compensation.
