Roberto Mancini Is PSG's New Target, Florentino Hears London Calling, According to Gazzetta

After the negotiations for Capello failed, Ancelotti's new hope could be Roberto Mancini. Ancelotti would still have to wait until the first days of July to sign his contract with Real Madrid, but he could be announced earlier if PSG manages to sign Mancini.

This time, it is Gazzetta the media that reports Ancelotti's replacement in PSG. As Real Madrid fans might know by now, Ancelotti won't officially be Real's coach until the French club finds and announces a replacement. After Leonardo's suspension and the broken negotiations for Capello, PSG seems to like Roberto Mancini, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

In that same page, the Italian tabloid reports that Florentino Pérez traveled to London with an 80M€ offer for Gareth Bale. Unfortunately for Real Madrid, it seems that Tottenham's President Daniel Levy has promised André Villas-Boas he'll keep the Welsh star. It will be very hard to convince Levy otherwise, but a transfer request from Bale could help Real Madrid a lot.

Carlo Ancelotti will reportedly sign for Real Madrid as soon as July begins. But the Italian coach is already in conversations with Pérez and Zidane to transform the squad. It certainly looks like he will surely be Real Madrid's coach, but FIFA's Greatest Club in the 20th Century deserves better. The team should already have a manager.
