According to ESPN, Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti will consider a return to the English Premier League next summer, should the German Bundesliga team trigger a release clause in his three-year deal.
Despite being regarded as one of the best tacticians in world football, the former Chelsea boss’ time at the Bundesliga club has been a rough one since replacing Spaniard Pep Guardiola last summer.
Though Bayern Munich retained their German Bundesliga title, Carlo Ancelotti’s men’s failure to make it to the DFB Pokal cup final, along with being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals put the Italian under severe pressure from both the fans and board alike.
Further pressure on the Italian tactician’s shoulders has been made by links between Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann, with the German Bundesliga champions set to sign the highly-regarded 30-year-old if Bayern fails to challenge for the UEFA Champions League this term.
As a result, ESPN have claimed this afternoon that the former PSG and Real Madrid tactician is now considering a return to the Premier League.
The 58-year-old’s rumoured interest in a return to the Premier League has heavily linked the experienced manager to North London club Arsenal.
Though Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger only recently extended his contract by another two-years at North London, mounting severe pressure from the fans for the 67-year-old Frenchman to step down could see the management board at the Emirates Stadium consider a transfer for Carlo Ancelotti, should he become available for transfer next summer.
