Carlo Ancelotti has indicated that his next managerial job may involve a return to the English Premier League.
Speaking to Radio Anch’io lo Sport, the former Chelsea manager has said that he will take his time before accepting his next job.
“My contract with Bayern expires at the end of the season and that’s when I’ll start listening to new offers. I want a serious project that can give me time and serenity even though I know it’s not easy.”
“The Premier League is a very interesting league of course…Every day there are new speculations about my future. Croatia, China, Everton, Chelsea.”
Ancelotti’s intentions to see out the rest of the season before taking a job may not appeal to Everton.
They are mired in a relegation struggle and the sooner they appoint their new manager the better, to try and get up the table.
David Unsworth is currently caretaker manager at the Blues, most recently losing 2-0 at Leicester in his second game in charge.
Carlo Ancelotti has been out of work since Bayern Munich sacked him after a 3-0 defeat to PSG.
He last managed in England in 2010, spending two seasons with Chelsea which included winning a Premier League and FA Cup double.
He has won three Champions Leagues in a long and storied managerial career which has included stints at Juventus, Milan, Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Perhaps Everton may be added to the list.
