Former Manchester United of England coach, Sir Alex Ferguson has pushed for the club to sign current Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti this summer.
According to reports by sports news outlet Todo Fichajes, Ferguson feels Ancelotti has the experience and know-how that Manchester United need right now as they enter into a difficult transitional period.
The Italian tactician has a wealth of experience at the highest level, having won league titles in a number of different countries, as well as three Champions League titles.
Ancelotti hasn’t done the most convincing job at Real Madrid this season, but they are still eight points clear at the top of La Liga.
Ferguson is unlikely to have the final decision, even if he is still an influential and highly respected figure at Old Trafford, so it will be interesting to see how this develops.
