Ancelotti-De Laurentiis summit tonight

Napoli are having their summit with Carlo Ancelotti, Aurelio De Laurentiis and Cristiano Giuntoli this evening, so Gennaro Gattuso could be announced tomorrow.

The coach said after a 4-0 Champions League victory over Genk that he would meet with the President on Wednesday.

However, according to multiple sources, the encounter has been brought forward to this evening at the Hotel Vesuvio in Naples.

There have been reports all day that Napoli have a preliminary agreement with former Milan coach Gattuso to take over the role, regardless of what this evening’s result was.

It is believed De Laurentiis has already decided to sack Ancelotti, so they are just working out the termination by mutual consent, to avoid paying next season’s full salary.

This would also allow Ancelotti to be a free agent again, with Arsenal and Everton waiting anxiously.
