Real Madrid move for Ancelotti rejected by PSG

Posted on May 13, 2013 by admin

Real Madrid could have a real problem on their hands, if the stories in the media about their approach to the new French champions is true that is. Although there is still no official announcement or even acknowledgemnet that Jose Mourinho will leave the Bernabeu this summer, it is the worst kept secret in sport.

It seems as if Florentino Perez and officials at Madrid have decided that the 53-year old Italian, Carlo Ancelotti, is the man to succeed Mourinho, but his current club have rejected the approach by Real, according to the PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi.

“They came and I discussed it with them,” he said. “Carlo has got a contract with us for one more year. For me, he’s here next year.

“He’s a fantastic guy and I’m sure he’ll respect his contract.”

Ancelotti has a great record in management, with a long list of trophies from his time with Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea and now PSG. He has won the league in three different countries and won the Champions League twice, so it is not surprising that he is high on the list of candidates for the Real Madrid job.

Also, he does not have the knack of falling out with his players, colleagues and the media that Mourinho has proved so good at recently. I doubt whether Madrid will stop at that single approach, but if PSG and Ancelotti stand firm, Madrid need to start looking elsewhere and quickly, because we cannot afford to start slowly again next season.
