Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is in talks to return to Italian management with Roma, according to former teammate Ruggiero Rizzitelli.
After winning the league and cup double in his first season in English football, Ancelotti has endured a difficult second season at Stamford Bridge, with The Blues 12 points off league leaders Manchester United, and out of the FA Cup.
The 51-year-old won nine honors while managing in Italy, and a former international colleague claims he's on the verge of a return.
“I believe there are negotiations with Ancelotti and Roma already. But it all depends on how much money is available. If Ancelotti comes to Roma, he expects a competitive side,” said Rizzitelli.
"So we have to see how much cash the owners are willing to provide for him as he will need the money to bring in important players.
Ancelotti played more than 170 games for Roma between 1979 and 1987 before joining AC Milan, where he won the European Cup twice as a player and manager.
