Man Utd is in the process of looking for a new head coach. Currently, Mauricio Pochettino is the leading candidate. In case of failure, according to ESPN, the Old Trafford team will consider appointing Carlo Ancelotti.
The Italian coach is under pressure to win the Champions League. If Real Madrid is soon eliminated, Ancelotti is likely to have to pack up and leave the Santiago Bernabeu. However, Man Utd is ready to welcome Ancelotti.
Ancelotti is appreciated by his experience in the field. Not to mention, Sir Alex Ferguson – who is still influential at Man Utd, also has great admiration for Ancelotti. Once in charge of Man Utd, Ancelotti will certainly make many changes.
In defense, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are in danger of being sold in the summer. To replace this duo, Ancelotti can welcome two former students at Napoli and Bayern Munich respectively, Kalidou Koulibaly and Joshua Kimmich.
This is an important task because Man Utd has never shown peace of mind on the defensive front. Coach Ancelotti hopes, the combination of Varane and Koulibaly can make a difference. Only then can Man Utd think about winning the title.
With midfield, Toni Kroos can follow Ancelotti to Old Trafford. The German midfielder was contacted to replace Paul Pogba. It is not ruled out that Pogba joins Real Madrid and Kroos will leave in the opposite direction.
The 62-year-old strategist also did not ignore Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison. This is the duo he loved to use when he was in charge at Everton. Both can breathe new life into the Man Utd attack.
Notably, the presence of Ancelotti will ensure the future of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese superstar moved to leave Old Trafford when he was no longer at his peak. However, Ancelotti must know how to best promote the level of his former student.
Overall, Ancelotti can bring a lot of changes. Above all, the Red Devils need to shape the game so that they can compete for the title fairly with strong opponents in the Premier League such as Man City, Chelsea or Liverpool.
