Manchester City Wants Ancelotti If Mancini Goes, News of the World Says

Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti is Manchester City’s first-choice replacement if Roberto Mancini leaves the Premier League club at the end of the season, the News of the World reported, without citing anyone.

Mancini is reportedly considering a return to Italy, at Juventus, the newspaper said. Ancelotti’s tenure at Chelsea is in doubt after a campaign in which the Blues may not win a trophy, the News of the World added.

Ancelotti would be keen to remain in English soccer’s top league, although he is also likely to be in demand in Italy’s Serie A, the newspaper reported.
