Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is on the shortlist to replace Manchester United boss David Moyes this summer, according to reports.
The Daily Mail claims the Los Blancos chief, as well as Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp and Dutch supremo Louis van Gaal, are being considered for a position which is expected to become available at the end of the season.
Moyes has failed to live up to expectations at Old Trafford, having replaced club legend Sir Alex Ferguson following his retirement at the conclusion of the 2012/13 campaign.
But, having won just 27 games in all competitions, the Manchester United owners are set to pull the trigger on the Scot in the summer, with a number of names emerging as candidates to take one of the biggest jobs in football.
Ancelotti has Premier League experience with Chelsea, and spent two seasons with PSG before taking the reigns at Real Madrid last summer. Unlike Moyes, he's put his side in title contention and claimed the Copa del Rey trophy.
Klopp continues to build his reputation in the Bundesliga, whilst Van Gaal is set to become available when he finished his duties with the Netherlands at the conclusion of the World Cup in Brazil.
With no Champions League football on offer, Manchester United will be relying on their incredible recent record of success and historical name to lure a big-name manager to the club, and the search appears to have begun already.
