Carlo Ancelotti’s future as manager of Real Madrid appears to be looking bleak after reports on social media suggested that Jurgen Klopp has agreed terms to replace the Italian in the summer.
The German manager announced last month that he is set to depart Borussia Dortmund at the end of the current campaign after seven successful seasons in charge of the Bundesliga outfit, which has yielded back-to-back league titles in 2012 and 2013, while he also guided the team all the way into the final of the UEFA Champions League against rivals Bayern Munich two seasons ago.
According to reports via a radio station in Germany, Klopp has signed a three year deal with Los Blancos and is set to take over from Ancelotti once the season is completed.

Ancelotti’s future has been placed in serious doubt after failing to bring a trophy back to the Santiago Bernabeu this season as Madrid crashed out of Europe against Juventus at the semi-final stage last week and also saw their bid to be crowned La Liga champions end in failure as fierce rivals Barcelona claimed the title at the weekend.
