Former Manchester City bosses Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini have been linked with the West Ham manager’s job amid doubts over Slaven Bilic’s future.

Bilic, whose side were beaten 3-0 at home by Brighton on Friday, is reportedly clinging onto his job ahead of London derbies against Tottenham and Crystal Palace.

The Sunday Mirror reckon Mancini, now in charge of Russian side Zenit St Petersburg, is the man West Ham want if they decide to axe Bilic.

The Sunday Telegraph, on the other hand, say the Hammers board like Pellegrini, who is currently at Chinese club Hebei China Fortune, and Huddersfield boss David Wagner.

The Sunday Express tout former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancellotti for a return to Stamford Bridge and in a separate story also link the Italian with West Ham.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid continue to be linked with Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

The Sun on Sunday claim Real are convinced they will sign the England international next summer.

Spurs have no intention of selling Kane, who has made it clear that he wants to stay at the club.

Nevertheless, The Sun on Sunday claim he is the Spanish club’s number one target and that a move to Real “is impossible to turn down.”

The same newspaper also claims that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is being lined up by Real as a possible successor to Zinedine Zidane.

Real president Florentino Perez is said to have told friends Pochettino is the man he wants if Zidane is replaced.
