PSG Complicates & Simplifies With Ancelotti & CR7 Rumours

L'Équipe believe Ancelotti could come to Madrid at any time. Price: 4 million.

Ancelotti could come tomorrow, apparently, if Perez wanted to make it happen. The cost? 4 million Euros. While not precisely news since his buy-out clause has been known for months, the paper's story does suggest a willingness to allow Ancelotti to go.

Full details can be found in L'Équipe, among others.

What's more, Marca believe that Perez wants to make his coaching transfer before the weekend and have his presentation next week. Perez has, of course, also promised a bigger role for Zinedine Zidane. As an aside, Ancelotti and Zidane (a player he once said changed his entire thinking on football) get along very well and have a harmonious relationship. It is expected, and has been for weeks, that Fabio Cannavaro and Hernán Crespo could also come to Madrid as assistants.

The rest of the story is somewhat alarming from a Real fan's point of view. The same source believes PSG want to lure Cristiano Ronaldo away from Real Madrid and are offering a huge salary. It's likely speculation, but the rumours are growing.
