Ancelotti Might Discuss Chelsea Move Next Summer - Milan Official

Milan organisational director Umberto Gandini thinks there is a good chance coach Carlo Ancelotti will discuss terms with Chelsea next summer.

Following Luiz Felipe Scolari's sacking as Chelsea coach, there is a lot of speculation on who might replace him. Reportedly the favorites are Milan's Carlo Ancelotti and Russia coach Guud Hiddink but both probably aren't available in the short term.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Milan's organisation director Umberto Gandini is convinced that at the end of the season Ancelotti will be free to negotiate with Chelsea.

"I cannot speak for Carlo, but certainly I don't think he could go there now," he said. "He already had the chance to think about this when he was contacted last summer. If there is another offer come June I think he will take it into consideration.

"I am completely unaware of a possible interest from Chelsea's part. If that is the case I am quite sure there will be a discussion between the two clubs. But it's absolutely impossible that it will happen now."

Other potential candidates for the job are former Inter coach Roberto Mancini and former Barcelona boss Frank Rijkaard, while Avram Grant has also been tipped as an interim replacement until the end of the season after already leading the Blues to the Champions League final and second place in the Premier League last season.

Doesn't look very official to me but it seems he will be our next permanant manager come summer.

God, looking at that graphic makes me want to vomit. There are three pieces of information on it, and two of them are outright falsehood or ridiculous assumption. "Italians CONFIRM: You can have him then". Yes I'm sure they did. How this garbage sells is beyond me. Anyway

I like Ancelotti, and he is a good coach, but I dont think this would work. For one, Scolari just got fired for even being in remote danger of what Ancelotti did last year, that is finishing outside the top four.

He must be doing something right, because three CL finals in 5 years is no accident. But it also doesnt mean he is guaranteed to work here. I would much rather Hiddink stay, if he is willing

Computer say's no.. from channel 4 sport

Ancelotti confirms he'll stay Thursday 12 February, 2009

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Milan Coach Carlo Ancelotti has expressed his intention to stay with the Rossoneri and say 'no' to Chelsea and Roman Abramovich should they come calling this summer.

Chelsea sacked Luiz Felipe Scolari earlier this week and replaced him with Russia Coach Guus Hiddink on an interim basis.

“The only club that has come forward for me has been Chelsea,†Ancelotti told calciomercato.com. “I met Abramovich in the summer and I didn't want to leave Milan.

“The same thing happens now, I don't want to leave,†Ancelotti explained, “These stories always come out at this stage of the season.â€

Ancelotti then turned his attention to Milan's recent form in Serie A, which has come under some criticism.

“Milan have problems in determining games when they face teams with certain characteristics. We don't have big players up front and against tight defences we have difficulties.

“You can look at the data in a thousand different ways,†Ancelotti added. “We lost points even when we played well and thought we'd won. I refer to the games against Lecce, Genoa and Torino.â€

Ancelotti was then drawn on the subject of the Derby della Madonnina, which takes place this Sunday and could prove decisive in the title race.

“I don't think it will be a walk in the park. But I think that we'll play our cards in the same way we did against them earlier this season.â€

Milan beat Inter 1-0 in September thanks to a Ronaldinho strike but now find themselves eight points adrift of their rivals in Serie A.

Inter Coach Jose Mourinho has been playing mind games all week, telling journalists he believes Milan play good football.

When asked what affect Mourinho's comments had had, Ancelotti replied: “Neither hot, nor cold. Mourinho has used an ironic tone but told the truth.â€

Ancelotti then moved on to talk about the future of England midfielder David Beckham who has expressed his desire to stay with the Rossoneri beyond his three-month loan from LA Galaxy.

“In my opinion we can make sacrifices to keep Beckham because he is an important player for the team.â€

Does this ring any warning bells?

:sCOtlaND: Oh god no. First they rape us with Shevchenko, now they are trying to rape us with Ancelotti...

They will probably have us take him for a huge compo package, and then when he fails loan him back for a few years until his deal runs out!

well, thank god for that. He might be a huge success at Milan, but I dont know if that would translate here, different leagues and all, and I kind of like these "club legends" staying where they are.

i.e. we need to get Jose back :D

I think Roman want Ancelotti for - his impressive Champion league record, and bring Kaka along with him.

However, if he can't secure a top 4 finish, there will be no chance to show off his champion league skills.

I'd love to see the Milan manager here next year, but it's not the one from AC :)

See, one of the joys of football managership is that you don't really have to run about a lot, so I expect Ancellotti (or whoever) wouldn't get too much out of puff <_<

Welcome to the forum mate. Can you do us all a favour though and avoid text speak and try a little punctuation in your posts. Thanks.

AC Milan are a crappy Italian football team? Really?

How many Champions League finals have they managed in the past 5 years? How many have our 'crappy English football team' managed?

The Ancelotti joining in the sumer rumour is likely to gather pace over the next few days purely because Kenyon refused to comment when asked about him today. A non-denial will be seen as a likely move in the eyes of the press.

AC Milan are not a "crappy" team BUT they don't always play the best football under Ancelotti. Bringing in an Italian coach is always risky as the premiership is very different, i would much rather someone who has managed in Spain.

I would hate for Carlos to come and manage at Chelsea, i think we need a manager who is going to invest in youn ger players who will have the legs to deal with a long season in the prem. I think Ancelotti would favour players like Ballack and Deco.

Keep him away from the Bridge!!!

Please, please, please not Ancelotti! I would even take Rijkaard over Ancelotti.

He will bring a lot duller football than the majority of fans I know would like to see, would probably do little to help nurture the youth through, he's being pushed out of AC Milan. Would Ancelotti be able to oversee a massive overhaul of players (with mind being paid to keeping prices paid to a relatively low level. A vote, for me, is a vote for sit back and defend football, grabbing the odd goal to win the game here and there. I don't think that Rijkaard is the answer either (I personally don't think he is a brilliant off the field manager of men, and we could see trouble, as under Scolari, is he can't keep the big egos under check).

I hope Kenyon is just messing around with everyone.

Hope we dont get Ancellotti, he just plays the team to keep the people above him happy, doesnt shake things up and makes terrible signings. This AC Milan side he has managed have been pretty terrible and we have no chance of winning the league with him. He won the Champions League because he had such a talented group of players, now some of them are older he has failed to rebuild. AC Milan have Kaka, Nesta, Pirlo etc. and they failed to qualify for the Champions League with that group. We have a similar squad, alot of old players who are underperfoming. Our squad needs rebuilding or at least refreshing, under Ancellotti i think we would probably struggle to make the CL like Milan did.
