Ancelotti edges closer to Madrid
Carlo Ancelotti looks to be on his way out of Merseyside and back to Madrid.
Reports have suggested that a deal between Everton and Real Madrid has already been reached and that the Italian coach is expected to take over the position vacated by Zinedine Zidane.

This has come as quite a shock and developed over the last 24-hours.
Ancelotti guided Everton to a 10th place finish despite significant investment in the previous summer window. Disappointing results against both Fulham and Sheffield United at the end of the season condemned them to a standing outside of the European places.
What now for Everton?
When Everton announced that they had appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their head coach it was seen as quite a coup for the northwest club.
The Toffees started off the season excellently with players such as James Rodriguez, Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ben Godfrey all impressing having been brought in under Ancelotti’s tenure.
The form was not sustainable though and soon they dropped off.
Now without a coach yet again, Everton will need to be on the lookout for Ancelotti’s successor.
The man being tipped to replace the Italian is former Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo. The Portuguese manager brought Wolves up from the Championship and helped them qualify for Europe.
Everton will hope he can once again qualify a team for the European places.
