Sir Alex Ferguson, the former manager of Manchester United, is said to be lobbying for his former team to employ Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti this summer, according to reports.
In addition to winning league titles in a number of different countries, the Italian tactician has won three Champions League crowns during his career.
As reported by Todo Fichajes, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes it is this expertise and knowledge that the club requires at this time, as the club enters a difficult transitioning period.
Although Fergie remains a prominent and well regarded figure at Old Trafford, the final decision is unlikely to be made by him, therefore it will be intriguing to see how the situation unfolds in the future.
Real Madrid haven’t had the most convincing season under Ancelotti, but they are still eight points clear at the top of La Liga after a poor start to the season.
This match against Paris Saint-Germain, whom Real Madrid are now trailing 1-0 in the Champions League, might be pivotal for both their season and the future of manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Manager Erik ten Hag of Ajax has also been connected with a move to Manchester United, according to 90min and others, but there is no doubt that Ancelotti has considerably more experience at the highest level.
