Everton will approach former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo over the possibility of him becoming the club’s next manager, according to reports. Everton are set to lose Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, with a deal to take the Italian back to the Bernabeu claimed to be ‘done’.
Ancelotti’s 18-month reign at Goodison Park is set to come to an end.
It was some coup for the Merseyside club to attract a manager of his calibre in December 2019 as the permanent successor to Marco Silva.
Despite a positive start to this season, Ancelotti failed to lead Everton into Europe, with the Toffees finishing 10th in the Premier League.
The club’s form at home let them down and their hopes of breaking into the top four diminished far earlier than the club would have liked.
Ancelotti still had three years remaining on his Everton contract.
However, the chance to manage Real again is seemingly too good an opportunity for him to turn down.
Ancelotti won four major honours as Real boss between 2013 and 2015 including the Champions League in his first season at the club.
