A clause in Ancelotti’s contract could see the former PSG boss leave the German side at the end of next season should his side fail to mount a serious challenge for the Champions League report ESPN.
Should Ancelotti end up leaving Bayern Munich next summer, it’ll be interesting to see which Premier League side manages to lure the Italian to their club.
