Carlo Ancelotti asks to leave PSGby Jack Kitson / 20 May 2013, 09:41Tweet
Carlo Ancelotti is edging closer to a move to Real Madrid after asking current club PSG if he can be released from his contract. Last week the Ligue 1 champions rejected an approach from the Spanish giants but now they may be reluctantly forced to let him go, although he does still have one season remaining in Paris.
The Italian coach recently led big-spending PSG to their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years, along with a Champions League quarter-final. He has now won championships in France, Italy and England and looks set to test himself in Spain. Sky Bet have installed the out-of-work Rafa Benitez and Roberto Mancini as the favourites to succeed him, while Laurent Blanc also features.
Real boss Jose Mourinho is almost certainly on his way out of the Bernabeu following a season in which he delivered no silverware. Former club Chelsea is almost certainly his destination, with the Portuguese coach as short as 1/33 with Stan James.
