Di Maria, Coentrao or Pepe could be key for Ancelotti signing


Paris Saint Germain directors would be open to negotiating Carlo Ancelotti’s transfer to Real Madrid if Los Blancos agree to consider offers for Di Maria, Coentrao or Pepe, according to Spanish sports daily Marca.

Florentino Perez has admitted they have contacted PSG about their manager, and they’ve been told he still has one year left on his contract. However, the Italian coach met with the club directors to ask them to leave this summer.

PSG’s owner, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, has been reluctant to let Ancelotti go, but sources have told Marca he would be willing to accept if Real agree to start negotiations for the transfers of Di Maria, Coentrao or Pepe.

Selling Coentrao was one of Los Merengues objectives for the summer. The French club have Maxwell and Tiene at left back, but the Brazilian will be 32 years old in August, while the Ivorian usually plays on the left side of the midfield. Coentrao’s signing for PSG could be the perfect deal for both teams if Ancelotti arrives at the Bernabeu in exchange.

The future of Di Maria and Pepe will be linked to the decisions of the new board of directors and the new manager that will arrive after the elections on June 16th.

The Argentinian has not performed at the expected level this season, but he is one of the fans favourites. Pepe, however, has fallen from the starting 11 due to Raphael Varane’s improvement and he could be seeking a new destination. The Portuguese has recently been linked with a move to Manchester City.
