AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti will bring with him many of his backroom team should he move to Real Madrid in the summer.
Speculation persists that Ancelotti will join Real in June and will bring with him highly-regarded fitness coach Daniele Tognaccini.
Tognaccini, who has overseen the extended careers of Paolo Maldini (38), Serginho (35) and Billy Costacurta (40), will be expected to whip Ronaldo and Antonio Cassano into shape at Madrid.
Real are excited by the prospect of luring Tognaccini away from Milan, where he runs the Milan Lab and will seek to introduce the successful fitness and nutritional techniques developed in Italy to the Spanish giants.
Along with Tognaccini, Giovanni Mauri and Villiam Vecchi are also expected to follow Ancelotti to Real should a deal be struck.
