Reports: Real Want Ancelotti

Real Madrid are sending come hither glances in the direction of Carlo Ancelotti, according to French newspaper, Le Parisien.

It is expected that Jose Mourinho will leave the Spanish champions at the end of the season, and PSG boss Ancelotti is reportedly on their agenda.

Le Parisien also claims that before he opted to join PSG’s Qatari-funded project, Ancelotti was approached by Manchester City and Liverpool.

The reason for the sudden speculation regarding Ancelotti’s future is comments he recently made concerning his contract with PSG.

He admitted that the final year of his deal with the ambitious French club will only be activated if they end the Ligue 1 season in the top three.

He also admitted that PSG’s final league standings will not be his only consideration at the end of the season.

"We'll draw conclusions at the end of the season, and if the club's happy, and me as well, we'll continue. If not....," Ancelotti told L'Equipe.

"There's no other choice. It's one or the other. I'm very happy here, but if the club's not satisfied, I'll have no problem changing."

Ancelotti will surely “have no problem changing” if the change entails a move into an office at the Bernabeu, for one of football’s most difficult, and coveted, positions.

And if Le Parisien is to be believed, Real president Florentino Perez has already told Ancelotti the job is his for the taking.

Meanwhile, Ancelotti has taken PSG to Spain, for their Champions League last-16 first-round tie with Valencia on Tuesday night.

If he can help the Ligue 1 leaders progress deep into Europe’s premium club competition, the respected Italian will be even more enticing to Real, who have their eye on their 10th European Cup this season.
