Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti

You’re never too sure with Real Madrid managers just how long they’ll be in the job for. So despite Carlo Ancelotti already having won the Copa Del Rey, and guiding his side to their first Champions League final in 12 years, there is always a possibility that the relationship will end abruptly. The Italian has a fantastic record, and has previous experience in the Premier League, having won the Premier League and FA Cup with Chelsea in 2010. Ancelotti is flexible, having proven his attacking credentials with the Blues – setting the record for goals in one Premier League season – but also has a track record of strong defences, most notably with his two-time Champions League-winning AC Milan side of the early-to-mid 2000s. He has recently led Madrid to a demolition of the much-fancied Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-final, and could become only the second manager in history to win three European Cups. If United wanted proven success and all-round football, they should look no further than Ancelotti.
