Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has joked that he would trek to Saudi Arabia on foot for the £450 million per year promised to golfer Jon Rahm.

The Basque golfer is projected to earn a whopping £450m over the next four years after switching from the PGA Tour to the LIV circuit in Saudi, an amount Ancelotti is still amused with.

According to GOAL, Ancelotti has joked that he would not need to think twice about accepting an offer to manage in Saudi Arabia if he were to be given the same sort of deal as the Spanish golfer.

"On foot. On foot. I’m walking, I don’t need to take a flight.
"It’s a joke. The world is changing. And it will change. It’s no surprise to anyone. Jon Rahm is very good. I’m not a golf expert, but Jon Rahm seems to me to be the best of all.”

Ancelotti is in his second spell in charge of Real Madrid since taking over the role in 2019 and led the Spanish giants to their 14th UEFA Champions League title.

Ancelotti not impressed with money

Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti has claimed money has never been his motivation when choosing a job after being asked if he will consider moving to Saudi Arabia, Football Espana reports.

The Real Madrid manager reckons the Middle Eastern country could be a significant threat to Europe due to their inability to offer a ridiculous amount of money to attract the best superstars to the Saudi Pro League.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Ngolo Kante and Neymar are some of the few superstars who have switched from Europe to Saudi Arabia in the last two years, highlighting Ancelotti’s fears.

Ancelotti named best in the world

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Arsenal head coach, Mikel Arteta loves the achievements of Carlo Ancelotti and has named the Real Madrid manager as the best coach in the world.

Ancelotti has had a successful career in coaching, winning multiple titles across stints with Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid.

The veteran Italian manager has won 25 major titles throughout his career, including four UEFA Champions League trophies and four UEFA Super Cups.
