Rafael Benitez could be the next manager of PSG, with current boss Carlo Ancelotti reportedly on his way to Real Madrid, according to L'Equipe.

The current Chelsea interim boss – whose former clubs include Valencia, Liverpool and Inter Milan – has been strongly tipped to replace Ancelotti should the Italian replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

Benitez, although not the most popular of managers, has found success as a coach at every one of the clubs he has taken charge of, and therefore would be a fine acquisition to help lead the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ezequiel Lavezzi to further success.

His amazing footballing acumen cannot be denied, and despite many not agreeing with his style of management, he is still able to constantly achieve success. This is most notable recently with the way that he managed to lead Chelsea to Europa League glory, despite only being given the title of interim manager and facing unrelenting abuse from the Chelsea faithful.

Benitez’s honours list really does speak for itself: winning the La Liga title twice and the UEFA Cup with Valencia; the FA Cup, FA Community Shield, Champions League and UEFA Super Cup with Liverpool; the Supercoppa Italiana and FIFA Club World Cup with Inter Milan and the Europa League with Chelsea.

Individually, he is also a two-time UEFA Manager of the Year and six-time Premier League Manager of the Month.

However you feel personally about the man, you cannot not deny his talent as a manager - and there is no doubt that he simply lives for success.

Success that he will most likely continue should he be announced as the new PSG manager in the coming weeks.
