Arsenal are ‘likely’ beneficiaries of Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton departure as it could benefit them in landing their £51.5m transfer target.
The managerial whirligig in Europe has taken another twist now as Carlo Ancelotti has reverted to Spain to take over Real Madrid’s managerial role.
That is a huge blow for Everton, who have had the legendary Italian at the lead of all their plans, both on and off the pitch.
The Toffees’ disaster is set to be Real Madrid’s profit this season, and the Spanish giants could well be joined by Arsenal as big winners, gratitude to these events.
The Gunners are striving to bring Martin Odegaard back to the Emirates on a permanent contract this summer, with reports alleging that Real Madrid are demanding a monstrous £51.5 million transfer fee.
Martin Odegaard dazzled almost everyone during his time at Emirates, and he is reportedly Mikel Arteta’s priority target.
Sport published a few months ago that Odegaard had made it open to Real Madrid that he will not return if Zidane was at the wheel of Madrid management.

Zinedine Zidane is now gone, which is good tidings for the 22-year-old. However, if there’s one manager who likes him less than Zidane did, it’s Ancelotti, who was in command when Real Madrid contracted Odegaard back in 2015.
In his book titled Quiet Leadership, Ancelotti imputed the Galacticos for drawing in a player he didn’t need. He claimed that the club forced him to play Odegaard in the first team and blamed the whole move of being a ‘public relations exercise’.
He said, as per Sky Sports: “When Florentino buys a Norwegian footballer, you simply have to accept it. Furthermore, the president decided that he would play three games with the first team as a public relations exercise.
“He could be the best player in the world, but I don’t care because he was not a player who I asked for. That signing was to do with PR.”
It’s explicit that Ancelotti didn’t lavish Odegaard back then, but that might not be the position anymore. However, could the Italian’s past remarks have ravaged the relationship between the two?
If Odegaard had predicaments with Zidane for not giving him a chance last summer, there’s sufficient reason to conclude that he doesn’t quite have the trust that he needs from Ancelotti either.
That could induce him to look for a move away, and what better place than Emirates. He has maintained that he loves Emirates and Mikel Arteta fully trusts him. That’s everything he can ask for, and that could persuade him to push his way back this summer.
