To believe Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti’s comments on his long-term future as a top European boss, there’s every chance he could be returning to the Premier League in the coming years.
The Italian, fresh from clinching the fabled La Decima - Madrid’s 10th Champions League - last term, is currently presiding over one of the most talented squads on the planet, but when quizzed he fondly recalled his memories from his time in charge of Chelsea, and expressed a desire to return to England at some point.
Of course, with Florentino Perez’s trigger finger notoriously itchy when it comes to the manager’s working under him there’s every chance he’ll find himself a dispensable asset when things aren’t going as swimmingly as they are now.
When this happens it looks like it could be next stop Premier League for Ancelotti, who has unfinished business after his acrimonious exit from Stamford Bridge in 2011.
But if that is the case then which club can hope to benefit from his arrival? The 55-year-old is as high-profile as they come and so certain sides can be ruled out. But just where will he be setting his sights?
