According to journalist Dean Jones, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is the perfect fit to replace Erik ten Hag as Manchester United manager.

The Red Devils are preparing to enter a new era thanks to Sir Jim Ratcliffe closing in on securing a 25 per cent stake in a £1.4billion deal and reports claim he is considering appointing a new manager.

Manchester United have reportedly held talks with the agent of Ancelotti, who will be out of contract at Real Madrid this summer.

Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “Ancelotti just brings an air of sophistication with him, plus respect and pedigree. They are all things that Manchester United fans would like to believe are traditions and traits that go hand-in-hand with what they’re all about.

“Obviously, in recent years, we’ve struggled to realise what Manchester United’s identity is, but Ancelotti has a clear identity, so I can see why some fans might want that to happen.

“I think he, in some ways, would be a perfect fit. But Manchester United aren’t going to change manager soon. Sticking by ten Hag is their philosophy for right now.”
