Manchester City fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling very, very optimistic ahead of the new season after reading the news from the Express – with the publication claiming that former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has signed a pre-contract agreement at Manchester City.
It is no secret here in the Football Transfer Tavern that current City boss Manuel Pellegrini looks set for a summer exit, after a disappointing season both domestically and in Europe.
Ancelotti is arguably one of the highest calibre managers in world football, having had spells at AC Milan, Chelsea and current club Real Madrid.
With Barcelona dominating the club in La Liga this season, it seems that Ancelotti could be set to depart the Bernabeu in the summer – and as our landlord here in the Tavern quips, Manchester City should do all they can to land the ex-Chelsea boss!
Manchester City fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Ancelotti as the helm of the Manchester club for next season? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
