CARLO ANCELOTTI could arrive at Manchester United in the summer and if he does he could transform the squad.
The Italian is currently Real Madrid boss but has been linked as a back-up option to Mauricio Pochettino – on the advice of Sir Alex Ferguson.

He is under pressure at Real who are also believed to be interested in Poch – Ancelotti could be fired if he fails to win the Champions league.
And if he does move to Old Trafford he will likely want money to spend to reshape a squad in need of a lift.
Ancelotti has a strong relationship with Ronaldo after their success together at Real in the past.
The superstar would likely be given a key role under the experienced manager and could thrive once more at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo has been crying out for a strike partner in recent weeks and Ancelotti could grant that wish by signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin, having brought the best out of the striker during his time at Everton.
Toffees team-mate Richarlison could also be on the transfer wishlist after being linked with a move to United in 2020.

Ancelotti has been known to sign former players with Allan one of his first signings for Everton – the midfielder joined from Ancelotti’s previous club Napoli.
And he could swoop to sign Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly if he makes the Old Trafford switch – he was also linked to the centre-back while at Everton.
The Red Devils are long-term admirers of the Senegalese and could bring him in to partner Raphael Varane.
Ancelotti could even try to sign Joshua Kimmich, whom he managed at Bayern Munich.
United were reportedly eyeing the German last year and he could solve the right-back dilemma, with Ralf Rangnick often rotating between Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot.
Kimmich’s compatriot, Toni Kroos, signed for Real Madrid under Ancelotti and he has previously been of interest to United as a replacement for Paul Pogba.
And with the Frenchman possibly leaving in the summer to Real, Kroos could be a realistic option given Ancelotti’s appeal.
