Italy deny reports over Carlo Ancelotti offer

Italy deny reports over Carlo Ancelotti offer

Various outlets in Italy, most notably Sky, are claiming that Ancelotti met with the FIGC (Italian Football Federation) to discuss the possibility of taking over as head coach, and was offered a deal to do so.

Italy have been on the hunt for a new manager since sacking Gian Piero Ventura back in November following the country's failure to progress through to the 2018 World Cup after a surprise play-off defeat to Sweden.

Concise News learnt that the Italian who was sacked by German side Bayern Munich last summer, is strongly preferred among other top coaches as Roberto Mancini, Claudio Ranieri and Antonio Conte who are also linked to the role.

Asked if there would be an official meeting with Ancelotti, he added: "Yes, but I still do not know when". We are loyal to the rules.




Chelsea are believed to be reluctant to sack Conte as that would result in a large pay-off for the coach who signed an improved contract last summer, with the reported £10m pay-off not paid if he leaves the Stamford Bridge club of his own accord.

Former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti, who has been heavily linked as Arsene Wenger's replacement at Arsenal, is reportedly on the verge of returning to management.

The former Chelsea boss has been out of work since he left his role in charge of Bayern Munich earlier this season after losing 3-0 to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. He has also won the league in Italy, France, Germany and England.

Italy Under-21 coach Di Biagio, 46, has been holding the position on an interim basis.
