Cannavaro would welcome Real Madrid return

Fabio Cannavaro would welcome a move to Real Madrid.

The former Real defender has been mentioned as a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti's former No2 Zinedine Zidane, now in charge of the Castilla.

"If Ancelotti, who is a great coach, calls me, then I will have to take advantage of it, and of course I would go," Cannavaro told Marca.

However, the 2006 Ballon d'Or Winner insisted he had not received any contact from Ancelotti yet about a return to the Bernabeu.

"I have read about it in the press but nothing more than that," he said.

"Everyone knows I have a very good relationship with Ancelotti and that I spent three fantastic years in Madrid. But I know nothing more than that.

"I am a qualified coach, I want to be a coach and so we'll see what happens."
