Ancelotti wants Ibra at Madrid

Linked with the Coach’s position at the Santiago Bernabeu, Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly requested that Real Madrid sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ancelotti is continually being speculated this week as having reached an agreement to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the summer and move across to Madrid to replace Jose Mourinho, who is expected to depart.

The Italian, who commented at the weekend that he wants to wait until the end of the season before making an official decision, has reportedly already begun work with Madrid on transfer targets for the summer.

Beyond a reported desire for Los Blancos to pick up Marco Verratti from his current club, Le10Sport say that Ancelotti is also pushing for them to make a move for Ibrahimovic.

Ancelotti is understood to see Ibra as an ideal strike-partner for Cristiano Ronaldo.
