The Sunday Telegraph report that Tottenham Hotspur will ask Carlo Ancelotti whether he is interested in returning to England.
The Italian tactician has guided current club Real Madrid to a Champions League and Copa Del Rey double in his first season in charge at Santiago Bernabeu.
The North London outfit meanwhile are once again looking for a new manager, following their decision to sack Tim Sherwood after a sixth place Premier League finish this season.
It was reported that Ancelotti’s position in Madrid would have come under threat had his team lost last night’s Champions League final against Atletico Madrid.
Though Los Blancos’ 4-1 victory and subsequent tenth European Cup triumph mean his future would now seem secure, that will not reportedly stop Spurs from at least posing the question.
Should Ancelotti’s response be negative, it is said that White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy would turn his attentions to Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino.
