Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly on Real Madrid’s shortlist for a new manager That’s according to Italian outlet Calciomercato, who claims Los Blancos are giving serious consideration to luring the Toffees’ boss back to Spain.
Ancelotti previously managed Real Madrid for two years from 2013 to 2015 with the Italian lifting four major trophies, including the 2013-14 Champions League.

However, bad news could be on the horizon for Everton fans after Calciomercato claimed their Italian gaffer is wanted again by Real Madrid.
Following the recent news that Zinedine Zidane has departed the club, the Spanish giants are on the lookout for a new head coach.
Everton can confirm that Carlo Ancelotti has left his position as manager to take up the role of Head Coach at Real Madrid.
Ancelotti, who joined Everton on a four-and-a-half-year contract in December 2019, said: “I would like to thank the Board of Directors, the players, and the Evertonians for the tremendous support they have all given me during my time at the Club.
“I have complete respect for everyone associated with Everton and hope they can achieve the exciting opportunities they have in front of them.
“While I have enjoyed being at Everton I have been presented with an unexpected opportunity which I believe is the right move for me and my family at this time.”
