Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is in pole position to become new Italian coach after the Azzurri were incredibly eliminated by Sweden at Russia 2018 playoffs amid a Chelsea return rumours.
FIGC are trying to convince Ancelotti to join, as the Italian looks to move on from his sacking at Bayern Munich.
A four-year project till the Qatar World Cup of 2022 can be offered to Ancelotti, who rejected two big offers from China as he believes that he can still coach at the highest level.
While it won’t be easy to convince Ancelotti into joining the Azzurri, Chelsea have already drawn links with their former boss. AC Milan too will look to get him, depending on whether Vincenzo Montella holds onto his job or not.
