Carlo Ancelotti will wave arrivederci to Chelsea and join Roma in June as he prepares to clear his desk at Stamford Bridge early, according to a report from Italy.
Impero Romanista claims Ancelotti may arrive in June to replace Claudio Ranieri. The current Roma boss has not renewed his deal in the capital.
Varying results, coupled with the uncertainty over the club’s future, have put any talk of an extension into the background.
Ancelotti meanwhile has seen his relationship with Chelsea thrown into doubt.
The Blues boss seems to have lost his grip on the way of life in the Premier League, and he has made a pact with Roma director Bruno Conti to join them under the instruction of current president Rosella Sensi.
Ancelotti’s Roma ties make him a favourite among fans and chiefs at the club, especially if Ranieri fail to deliver meaningful results this season. (Goal.com)
It’s time to get hold of your pinches of salt as there is a fairly good chance that this speculation is wild in the extreme. Clearly things have not gone to well for Carlo Ancelotti of late but it would seem highly unlikely that he would be planning to leave Chelsea just yet.
Also worth noting that Claudio Ranieri has started to turns things around this season after an average start to the campaign and whilst Ancelotti has great ties to the Stadio Olimpico club after his eight years at the club as a player, a move to Roma seems a bit of a stretch to say the least.
Chelsea have now gone five Premier League games without a win but are still just one point from top so it is hardly time for anyone to really believe the Italian would leave the club he led to a domestic double in his first season.
