Carlo Ancelotti has signed a contract with a Chinese club and could leave Bayern Munich in January, as claimed German midfielder Mario Basler.
Speaking to sport1, former Bayern Munich player Mario Basler Basler revealed the Italian coach would leave his position at Bayern as soon as the Chinese Super League begins in the new year.
“I have been told that Ancelotti has signed with a Chinese club,” Basler said.
“From what I understand, he could leave as soon as January because that is when the season in China starts.’
Basler added: “I cannot confirm it 100 per cent but my source is very trustworthy.”
Ancelotti has been under great pressure after seeing his side suffer a surprise 2-0 defeat to Hoffenheim on Saturday.
