Former Chelsea boss drops hint over possible summer move to Man United

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that he would be interested in the chance to take over at Manchester United next summer, Mirror reports.

The 56-year-old was previously in charge of Real Madrid before getting sacked during the previous transfer window as he is now taking a break from management.

He was in charge of the Blues between 2009 and 2011, winning the Premier League, FA Cup, and FA Community Shield once over his two year spell.

However, Ancelotti is now set to return to management and has hinted that he is considering a role at United and could be in line to replace current boss Louis van Gaal.

“If I don’t find a club with a good project, I can wait. I will not take a job in mid-season, but I would like to work again next summer,” he said.

“Of course, for every manager, they would all think of managing Manchester United.

“The Premier League is the best in the sense of atmosphere, ambience. It is also competitive, so I would like to come back, especially for the atmosphere.”

Van Gaal is expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of next season given that he made a promise to his wife to retire once his spell in the Premier League comes to an end.

The Red Devils have struggled to find the back of the net on multiple occasions this term, with the supporters now criticising the Dutchman for his strategies.
