West Ham will add Carlo Ancelotti to their replacement management wish list following his sacking by Napoli …but in reality have no chance of getting him.
With a who’s who of top clubs behind him including Bayern Munich , Chelsea, Parma, PSG, Real Madrid and Milan, there is next to no chance of the 60 year old being installed at the struggling Hammers.
Both Arsenal and Everton are also on the case after it became clear that Napoli were close to ending his contract with the club in Serie A seventh placed ahead of today’s news.
With no compensation due, the Hammers have to be interested but in reality have close to zero chance of bringing him to the London Stadium.
In the real world The Mirror is today reporting the names mentioned here several days ago – David Moyes and Chris Hughton – as canidates should the axe fall on Pellegrini.
That could be as soon as next week should the Irons be beaten by Southampton at the weekend and be left precariously positioned within or just outside of the bottom three.
