Ancelotti in Roma's sights again

Tuesday's exit from the Champions League means Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is once again in Roma's sights ahead of next season.

Chelsea lost both legs of their quarter-final against Manchester United and that failure would appear to spell the end for Ancelotti at Stamford Bridge.

Last night, former Italy boss Marcello Lippi threw his hat into the ring of candidate to replace Ancelotti at Chelsea, telling Radio Mana Mana: "It would be beautiful."

It's no secret that Ancelotti is Roma's No 1 choice to replace caretaker boss Vincenzo Montella at the end of the season in May.

La Gazzetta dello Sport understands Roma's efforts to lure Ancelotti to the Olimpico would be greatly facilitated if he were sacked.

Ancelotti has a year left on his contract with Chelsea and extricating the former Milan boss from it would be costly.
