Under-pressure Derby County manager Paul Clement could once again team up with Carlo Ancelotti should the 43-year-old lose his job at the iPro Stadium, according to The Mirror.
Former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Ancelotti will take over at German side Bayern Munich at the end of the season as he replaces Pep Guardiola, who is on his way to Premier League outfit Manchester City.
Clement worked with the Italian at Stamford Bridge before following him to Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, and could be set to join the 56-year-old to the Allianz Arena as the pressure mounts at Derby.
According to The Mirror, trouble is brewing behind the scenes at the Derbyshire outfit as owner Mel Morris is not happy with the club’s recent form in the Championship.
The Rams hit top spot on Boxing Day following a 2-0 victory at home to Fulham, but they have not won a match in the league since then, and a 1-1 draw with the Cottagers on Saturday sees Clement’s side drop to fifth in the table.
Steve McClaren was shown the door by Morris last summer as Derby saw a promotion push wither away towards the end of the season, eventually finishing eighth in the division.
The Rams owner is said to been a keen admirer of former defender Gary Rowett, who is in charge of Birmingham City and has just recently signed a new long-term deal with the Blues.
