Manchester United: Red Devils make Carlo Ancelotti approach

Manchester United: Red Devils make Carlo Ancelotti approach -Manchester United News

Manchester United have reportedly made an approach over bringing Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti to Old Trafford.

The Lowdown: Ten Hag and Pochettino talks

The Red Devils are making a head start in regards to their pursuit of bringing in Ralf Rangnick’s long-term replacement ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Ancelotti at Old Trafford?

Yes, get him in!

No, need Ten Hag or Poch!

Both Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino have been in talks with United officials in recent weeks, with Julen Lopetegui and Luis Enrique also thought to be on the club’s shortlist.

Ancelotti, who shares the same agent as Raphael Varane, now appears to be the latest manager on that list.

The Latest: Approach made for Ancelotti

Sport Witness relayed a report from UOL regarding Ancelotti and United on Tuesday.

They claimed that an approach has been made, with the Red Devils considering the arrival of the Italian in the last few days.

However, the report added that a potential swoop won’t be straightforward, with Ancelotti happy at the Bernabeu.

The Verdict: Surprise…

It did look as if Ten Hag and Pochettino were the frontrunners for the job after their talks with United CEO Richard Arnold, with Lopetegui and Enrique outside contenders, so this update on Ancelotti does come as a shock.

A third managerial job in England after spells with Chelsea and Everton could be unlikely for the 62-year-old, especially as he is thought to be very content in Madrid.

United may not be able to offer Champions League football next season either, which could make it even harder to attract Ancelotti, who currently has that with Real Madrid, whom he is also set to guide to La Liga glory in the coming weeks.
