Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly been offered the vacant role of head coach of the Italian national team.
According to Sky Italia, the 58-year old held a 90-minute meeting with Italian Football Federation commissioner Roberto Fabbricini and sub-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta in Rome on Monday night.
They talked about the vacant coaching job, backroom staff amongst others.
Former Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid manager Ancelotti has been without a job since September when he was sacked as Bayern Munich after his team lost 3-0 to Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in a UEFA Champions League (UCL) clash at the Parc des Princes.
He is now overwhelming favourite to replace former coach Gian Piero Ventura who was sacked in November after he masterminded the Azzurri’s failed bid to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and its believed that he has been offered a two-year contract with the national side though he is yet to agree to the deal.
