Italian tactician adamant on move to Madrid this summer.
PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti is ready to pay half of the compensation himself to free him of his deal with the French club in order to force through a move to Real Madrid this summer.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, who obtained a report from Spanish paper Marca, the Italian coach is willing to pay €2m to be freed by the Parisians, with Madrid president Florentino Perez ready to pay the other half.
Although the speculation has been denied by Ancelotti’s representatives, it has been apparent for a number of weeks that the former Milan boss wishes to join the Spanish giants this summer.
Having successfully guided the capital club to a league title last season, it is believed “Carletto” is ready for a new challenge following the departure of Jose Mourinho at the Bernabeu, and wishes to add another league title to his collection.
L’Equipe have reported that the compensation fee which would be owed to PSG should he leave stands at €4m, and early indications are that the 53-year-old is willing to fork out his money.
The latest development comes after Ancelotti told the club he wanted to leave at the end of the season, but was told by Qatari president Nasser al-Khelaifi that he has one more year left on his contract and that an exit “was not possible”.
The Qatar Sports Investments group expect him to fulfil his contractual obligations, but it appears as though Ancelotti has made his decision and will continue to push for a move to Spain this summer.
