Reports are gathering pace that Carlo Ancelotti will leave Paris Saint-Germain for Real Madrid in the summer.
The Italian tactician’s future in France has been placed into some doubt in recent months despite their Ligue 1 leadership and the side’s progression in the Champions League.
Le Parisien is today suggesting that Ancelotti has already held preliminary talks with Real Madrid, a club who are expected to part company with Jose Mourinho in June.
Ancelotti, 53, is also one of a number of tacticians linked with the vacant position at former club Roma for the 2013-14 campaign.
The ex-midfielder has worked for outfits such as Parma, Milan, Juventus and Chelsea in his career to date.
