Carlo Ancelotti’s Response Revealed As Journalist Claims That United Have “Sent” Real Madrid Boss An “Offer”

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti is not interested in becoming Manchester United manager, according to El Chiringuito reporter Benjamin Lopez.

The Spanish journalist claims that the Red Devils “sent” an “offer” to the Italian through his agents but he has made it clear that he doesn’t want to return to England:

“He has three offers, not only the one from Brazil. One is to manager the Canadian National Team, which appeals sentimentally. He has a house in Vancouver and his wife is Canadian so he would be delighted with that. He would finish his career there and has an offer in writing, but he prefers Brazil. The last is not an offer in writing but has been sent to him verbally through his agent, it’s from the Premier League and Manchester United. They would take him tomorrow.”

“However, he doesn’t want to return to the Premier League and coach any club. He would be willing to coach Brazil but what he really wants is to stay in Madrid. That can happen if things go well this season.”

Ancelotti has other plans

As Lopez mentions, the 64-year-old is also considering proposals from two national teams, Canada and Brazil, and it appears he is leaning towards the offer from South America.

Ancelotti’s current contract at Real expires at the end of the season and the former Chelsea and Everton manager is not expected to sign a renewal with the La Liga giants.

Are United looking to replace Erik ten Hag?

If Lopez’s information is accurate, it would seem that the Red Devils are considering potential replacements for their current manager. However, there is another scenario to consider.

Up until recently, there were two bidders looking to buy Manchester United. The Nine Two Foundation, led by Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani and Sir Jim Ratcliffe. It is very possible that one of these two parties got in touch with Ancelotti’s agents to inquire whether the 4-time Champions League winner would be interested in the job, if they bought the club from the Glazers.
