With reports suggesting current manager Maurizio Sarri will be leaving Napoli during the summer, the club are already looking for his replacement, and Carlo Ancelotti is the man they want in the dugout of the Stadio San Paulo next season.
According to Marca, the club are preparing themselves for Sarri’s potential departure this summer, and have been frequently discussing the possibility of hiring Ancelotti as their new manager.
Ancelotti is said to be prepared to listen to Napoli’s offer, as he looks to make a return to management after being sacked by Bayern Munich in September 2017.
With one game left in the Italian season, Napoli find themselves 4 points behind Juventus, and they would be hoping that Ancelotti would be able to take the next step and finally dethrone The Old Lady, who have been dominant in Italy over the last decade.
The club are also hoping to become a serious threat in the Champions League after failing to advance from the group stage of the competition this year.
