Carlo Ancelotti: Denies meeting Real Madrid's sporting director or president

Carlo Ancelotti admits there is a chance he could still be at Paris Saint-Germain next season but he first needs to "clarify things" with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

The Italian's future with the Ligue 1 side has been at the centre of recent speculation and earlier this week PSG revealed they turned down an approach for their coach by Real Madrid.

Ancelotti has enjoyed a successful 17-month spell in the French capital, leading them to a runners-up finish in 2011/12 before lifting the league title this season.

And the 53-year-old admits he would be reluctant to leave PSG so soon.

"Of course there is a chance that I will stay," he told L'Equipe. "Today it is 50/50.

"I am settled here and I'm not a person who likes change.

"I was a little disappointed when I left Chelsea (in 2011). And if I leave Paris there will inevitably be sadness, that's normal.

"But in the meantime I want to clarify things (with the president). This applies to everything that has happened this season. A lot has gone on, some of it great, some not so great."

Ancelotti also played down the Madrid link, saying: "I have not met either Real Madrid's sporting director of the president."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
