Carlo Ancelotti could be close to bidding farewell to Napoli and reportedly might consider to a return to Milan next season.
There has been chaos at the San Paolo lately and Ancelotti’s reign seems to be heading towards the end. Now, Tuttosport claims he will not stay on after the current season.
The reports have lately been suggesting that the 60-year-old might be interested if the Rossoneri were to make a move for him.
Under Serie A rules, a coach cannot work for two clubs in the same season, so any move to San Siro would have to be next term, even if he does depart Napoli early.
Milan have already replaced Marco Giampaolo and appointed Stefano Pioli as the second successor to Gennaro Gattuso, who ended last season one point away from Champions League football.
With Ancelotti’s future unclear beyond this season, he might be tempted to take on a different challenge at San Siro. The Italian tactician previously had a highly successful spell in Milan, both as a player and coach, but would face a completely different challenge if he chooses to take on the job.
During his spell in charge at the Giuseppe Meazza, his Milan team won the Scudetto in 2003-04 and two Champions League titles – in 2002-03 and 2006-07.
The squad will be far off that level and he will have to turn things around just to bring Milan back into Europe.
