Marca press: Carlos Ancelotti’s deal almost closed


Spanish daily Marca puts its main focus on Florentino Perez’s official investiture as president of Real Madrid. “Perez starts his fourth term in charge of Real and he is close to sealing Ancelotti’s signing”, the sports paper claims.

Marca states that Los Blancos directors take for granted that the Italian manager will leave Paris Saint Germain soon and arrive to Bernabeu.

“The other priorities of Perez are Zidane’s appointment as sports director, the arrival of a world-class star and the stadium’s remodeling”, Marca adds.

The other main Madrid sports newspaper, As, claims in its front page that Real Madrid would be willing to bring Raul Gonzalez’s current team, Al-Sadd, as the rival for the Santiago Bernabeu summer tournament.

According to the Spanish daily, the directors would be looking for a date that would fit the Qatar club well.

As also states that Florentino Perez has not ruled out the option of naming Zidane as manager if Carlo Ancelotti finally does not come.
