Carlo Ancelotti has been set to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari as Guangzhou Evergrande coach, as reported by the Nanfang Daily.
Scolari has been expected to step down as head coach of Guangzhou Evergrande once his contract expires at the end of November.
Nanfang Daily claimed Guangzhou officials met with Ancelotti in London recently.
The signing of the Italian as Guangzhou’s new coach will be unveiled once the Chinese Super League season has come to an end.
He is reportedly set to meet his new players in November at a training camp to assess the squad.
