Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti will be offered the chance to return to the Premier League if Manchester United decide to sack David Moyes.
Moyes’ future at Old Trafford is far from certain due to his side’s poor results during his first year in charge of the Premier League champions.
His side are currently languishing in seventh place, are out of both domestic cup competitions and face a tricky test against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
The likes of Jurgen Klopp and Louis van Gaal have been linked with taking over the reins from Moyes at the end of the season, however the Daily Star suggests Ancelotti has jumped to the top of Manchester United’s managerial wish-list.
The Real Madrid boss, who guided Chelsea to the double in 2010, is said to be under extreme pressure to win a major trophy.
Real Madrid’s top brass expect the Italian tactician to win either the Champions League or La Liga this season.
Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are currently above Real Madrid with just seven games to go - which has raised doubts over Ancelotti’s long-term future at the club.
Manchester United would expect Ancelotti to steady what looks to be a sinking ship - while the likes of Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville continue to work their way up the coaching ladder.
