What the papers say

West Ham have started looking for a replacement for Slaven Bilic as pressure builds on the Croatian manager – with Carlo Ancelotti a possible contender, the Daily Mail reports. The Telegraph says Ancelotti is eyeing up a return to the Premier League, after being sacked by Bayern Munich. However, according the Sun, AC Milan could also be interested in bringing back their former manager.

David Silva is reportedly considering leaving Manchester City and heading to AC Milan. As reported by the Sun, Italian news site Tuttomercatoweb claims Silva could move to the Serie A team at the end of the season, having put new contract talks with City on hold. Silva has two years to run on his current City deal.
