Fabio Capello linked with move to Jiangsu Suning

Fabio Capello could be heading to China as he is on the verge of signing as new manager of Jiangsu Suning.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Jiangsu Suning have reportedly switched their attentions to Fabio Capello after failing to agree to terms with former Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa.

Reports from Sky Sports Italia said that former Real Madrid and AC Milan manager has accepted the bench in Jiangsu and will be joined by some very familiar faces, including 2006 World Cup winner Gianluca Zambrotta and ex-Milan caretaker boss Cristian Brocchi.

Jiangsu are struggling near the bottom of the Chinese Super League and were eliminated by Shanghai SIPG in the first knockout stage of the AFC Champions League.

The club are looking for a new manager after Choi Yong-soo resigned from the coach position last week.
