Fabio Capello could be the man to take over in Paris.
It’s beginning to look increasingly more likely that Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti will succeed Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, as former England manager Fabio Capello refuses to rule out a move to the Ligue 1 champions.
Capello is currently in charge of Russia’s national side but has refused to deny that a switch to PSG is not on the cards.
“In life, you must never say never,” the Italian was quoted on Sky Sports.
“For the moment, the reality is that I have a job in Russia.”
The 66-year-old has been strongly linked with taking over at the French club ever since it became apparent Mourinho would be leaving Madrid.
Capello, a former Los Blancos boss himself, is the favourite to succeed Ancelotti when his fellow countryman takes up the vacant position at the Santiago Bernabeu.
This speculation has become even more rife as previous other leading contender for the Madrid job, Jupp Heynckes, has announced he will retire from football at the end of this season.
With Mourinho resuming the role he once held at Chelsea for the second time, it’s now thought the Spanish giants will act fast to secure their new man and in turn, PSG will have to do the same.
As well as being in charge of England for four years, Capello won four Serie A titles and a Champions League with AC Milan and had two La Liga triumphs with Madrid.
The Italian’s current side Russia top their World Cup qualification group having won all four of their games and are a point ahead of both Israel and Portugal who have played six.
