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."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
