Ancelotti to quit Bayern for China in January?

Carlo Ancelotti has been surprisingly tipped to quit Bayern Munich for the Chinese Super League in January by former Bayern Munich player Mario Basler.

Basler told German talk show Sport1: “Some days ago I heard that Carlo Ancelotti has already signed a contract for a club abroad starting in the winter.

Reports state that a CSL club has sounded out the possibility of Ancelotti making a move to Asia, but that all parties are “a significant distance from reaching an agreement”.

Guangzhou Evergrande are considered to be a possible landing spot for the 58-year-old, with Luiz Felipe Scolari currently under pressure after suffering a 4-0 mauling at the hands of Shanghai SIPG in the first leg of their AFC Champions League clash.

The former Juventus, AC Milan, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain boss has lifted league titles in Italy, England, France, Spain and Germany, while tasting Champions League glory on three occasions – to go with the two European Cups he won as a player.
