The Russian giants are apparently keen on the Italian, but have been the Three Lions' boss cannot line up a move until qualification for next summer's competition is secured
Anzhi Makhachkala will have to wait until England qualify for Euro 2012 before Fabio Capello can discuss a potential move to Russia, according to The Daily Mail.
The big-spending club recently purchased Samuel Eto'o and Yuri Zhirkov, and are apparently keen on the Italian coach, whose contract with the English FA expires at the end of next summer following the Euro 2012 tournament.
It was reported yesterday that they were to make an approach, however, it appears that Capello's contract prevents him from lining up a move before England have qualified for the tournament.
England will face Montenegro in their next qualifying game, and need only one point to reach next year’s finals, meaning Capello could potentially accept the job offer next month.
The FA have announced the reasons for the clause are due to Sven-Goran Eriksson’s talks with Chelsea in 2004, which resulted in much embarrassment.
Surprisingly, the Swede was offered another contract, but it is expected that the current England manager will be leaving next summer, and Anzhi are confident that he will join them when he is done with his current post.
But Anzhi would face the task of convincing the England manager’s wife to move Russia, after she expressed her despondence at constantly moving around Europe, with clear expectations of her husband’s retirement following his 65th birthday.
