Benitez tipped to take over at Madrid

According to the reliable Spanish media outlet AS, Napoli boss Rafael Benitez could be heading for the depature door in Naples, and straight into the arrivals in Madrid.

There have been false reports across social media suggesting that Jürgen Klopp is heading to replace Carlo Ancelotti at the Bernabéu. However, ex-Chelsea boss Benitez is looking more likely to take the role.

Italian media took centre stage over the past couple of nights, reporting that Benitez is ready to call time on his managerial career at Napoli.

AS are suggesting that the directors of Napoli could meet on Thursday to announce Benitez’s decision – although it’s doubtful.

The ever reliable Di Marzio of Sky Sports Italia took to Twitter to report that the Italian boss has turned down offers from West Ham United as he wants to be the boss of Los Blancos.

The sacking of Ancelotti seems imminent, with it being reported it could take place at the end of the season.

ABC suggest that Madrid were interested in Joachim Low, but a deal would be difficult to strike seeing as Euro 2016 is just around the corner.
