2. Carlo Ancelotti
Rumoured to have turned down the Liverpool job just weeks ago, Ancelotti is probably the biggest name out there in terms of available managers. His previous tenure at Chelsea was a mixed bag, after winning the league in his first season, the second season was trophyless and saw him sacked. The real question here is, would Abramovich be willing to go back to the Italian and would Ancelotti be willing to go back to try and meet the Russian’s high standards? There’s also reports that the ex-Ac Milan chief is being lined up by Bayern to replace Guardiola at the end of the season.
