After Marco Silva was sacked early in December, Everton hierarchy has since considered plethora of managers in order to replace him. Including the likes of David Moyes, Vitor Pereira, Unai Emery, Sam Allardyce and Carlo Ancelotti. Talking about CVs, Unai Emery and Carlo Ancelotti stand out amongst all others.
Though the Italian’s cabinet includes three coveted Champions League trophies, which overshadows Unai Emery’s. It is also noteworthy that Farhad Moshiri, Everton’s major shareholder, likes manager with impressive CVs. It is believed that he wants a “Hollywood” kinda signing. This explains why Carlo Ancelotti is believed to be close to signing for the 18th placed premier league strugglers.
In fact, some reports states that the former Napoli man has agreed to a deal with the Toffees. Carlo Ancelotti is believed to have stressed for a long term deal. He also wants a big war chest to be allotted in the summer to buy his desired players. Even though Everton have spent around £200 millions under Marco Silva’s reign, they’re still determined to match Ancelotti’s demands.
Carlo Ancelotti have been at the helm of some of the biggest clubs in Europe including the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Chelsea. However he understands his charm as a manager has surely declined. Only highlighted by the fact that even though clubs like Bayern Munich and Arsenal are without a permanent manager, still none of them approached him. In fact Arsenal are believed to reject him in favour of Manchester City’s assistant manager, Mikel Arteta.
For Everton, he is the kind of man who has been there and done it all. The Goodison faithful wants their club to be competing for the European spots. And if Ancelotti is backed adequately, he can make their wish come true.
At the time of writing, Carlo Ancelotti is believed to have agreed a deal with Everton. And is in contact with his former employers, Napoli, to complete the formalities of his contract which was terminated by the Italian side last week.
