TRANSFERS – Landing Naples Tuesday night, Carlo Ancelotti is added to the long list of free coaches. Like Mauricio Pochettino or Unai Emery, the Italian could soon bounce back.
As he recently confided, Pochettino, who was gone to relax in Argentina, was planning to return to Europe. The purpose? Find a club with a solid project. On the other side of the channel there was talk of a possible Arsenal interest. The Bayern Munich train, which seemed plausible, was recently excluded by the German daily bild. Adopted by PSG as a player, the former defender will certainly follow closely the rest of the season in Paris, which will determine the future of Thomas Tuchel on the bench.
With six scudetti, five Italian cups and two C1 finals, Massimiliano Allegri is now one of the best coaches in circulation. Since his separation with Juventus, at the end of last season, the Tuscan proposal is not missing. But he persists and signs: he will benefit from his sabbatical. We should see him again on a bench next season. A possible arrival at Arsenal can therefore be ruled out in the immediate future.

Recently, Allegri had explained "take English courseHoping for a future Premier League finish possible If Ole Gunnar Solskjær regains some credit with his victory in the derby against Manchester City (1-2), his position remains marked by Manchester United's side A club that will tempt the Italian, whose profile will also be Appreciated by Leonardo, the sporting director of PSG. If Tuchel came to occupy the door in the coming months, the Brazilian could well beat it for the former AC Milan coach.
Real Madrid, who appear to retain Zinedine Zidane, also thought of Max Allegri a few months ago.
For three years it is still the same story. As soon as a more or less posh club sets itself apart from its coach, Laurent Blanc is still on the list of potential successors. For the same finale: the former PSG coach is left at the dock. Recently, it seemed like he was sitting on the bench for the Olympics, which had made him his favorite to replace Sylvinho. But the great oral world champion 98, visibly convincing according to sources, left the field open for Rudi Garcia.
Over time, the opportunities to see him in the coach suit decline.
After two more or less failures at PSG and Arsenal, Unai Emery also looks set to strike back. The Spanish technician, whose work on Gunners side has attracted much criticism, has recently been contacted by Everton, who is currently seeking a replacement for Marco Silva. A hypothesis that should go no further, Emery wants to take a break before taking a team.
The situation of Luciano Spalletti is complex. Driven from Inter Milan at the end of last season, the Italian coach is still under contract Nerazzurri until 2021. All with a net salary of 5 million euros per year. Not enough to encourage him to find a job. AC Milan did well in October last year, but the obstacle to the contract was too great. The same for Naples, who was soon to formalize the arrival of Gennaro Gattuso. Another element to consider: the story ended badly between Inter and his former coach, who has no intention of giving any gifts to his former managers.
