Carlo Ancelotti has made a massive statement regarding his next job in his career preferring to choose Arsenal over his former club Chelsea.
Since Arsene Wenger made a shock announcement that he will be ending his 22 long year spell at Arsenal, there have been a number of names that have popped up as his replacement. The veteran Frenchman won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups during his illustrious tenure at the North London club but decided to step down at the end of this season. The candidates in the hat that are set to succeed Wenger are Luis Enrique, Massimiliano Allegri and even former Gunner legend Patrick Viera.
Among the hoard of names that have emerged as Wenger’s successors, one man who is eager to get back into management is Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian is keen on getting back to managing a top club after he was sacked by the German giants Bayern Munich earlier this season. However, the three-time Champions League winning manager has just moved back to London and has hinted at preferring a job at Arsenal over ex-club Chelsea.
From France: Ancelotti has ‘prioritised’ move to Arsenal.
Chelsea have been keen on a return, but the Italian is eyeing up the Emirates.

Why Would Ancelotti Pick Arsenal over Chelsea-
During Ancelotti’s time at Chelsea, the 58-year-old manager suffered similar problems his national compatriot Antonio Conte is at the moment. The Blues’ transfer board has way more control over transfers than the manager which causes fallouts between the two parties. Whereas, at Arsenal, Wenger was allowed to exercise his power and had total control over the club and that is something that has attracted Ancelotti’s attention.
Ancelotti has never enjoyed the lack of influence in transfers even at AC Milan and Paris Saint Germain, where he was only allowed to submit transfer requests without having a firm say. But despite the Arsenal board restricting control of Wenger’s power, Ancelotti would still prefer to manage Arsenal over Chelsea as Roman Abramovich is still the owner of the club and even if it’s a straight choice.
I would like to see Ancelotti manage Arsenal because he will take over a club which was built by Wenger, who was at the club for a very long time. I feel that a legend making way for another legendary manager would take Arsenal to the next level.
