Competition: Premier League
Market: Caro Ancelotti to be next Manchester United
Odds: 3/1 @ Bet 365
With struggling Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal now looking likely of an early departure in the summer, the Red Devils are eyeing up potential replacements for the Dutchman ahead of the 2016/17 season. Former Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti is high up on their shortlist with the Italian fitting the bill of United’s playing philosophy.
Van Gaal’s possession-based patient style hasn’t gone down well with the supporters in his second season, especially with a lack of goals and dropped points being commonplace of late. United are therefore looking for somebody who will provide a more attacking ethos to the team, and a manager who has won major trophies at the highest level. Ancelotti isn’t second to many in this regard.
A multiple title winner, a multiple Champions League winner, and a proven manager in the Premier League, the Italian coach won the title with former side Chelsea in the past, and would be given lucrative resources to turn United into convincing challengers this time round. He’s also admitted an interest in returning to England when the right job comes up. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 3/1 for the 56-year-old to be Van Gaal’s successor at United.
