AC Milan head coach Carlo Ancelotti has affirmed his commitment to the Serie A outfit by once more dismissing reports that he might take over as Chelsea manager next season.

"I'm not going to Chelsea," Ancelotti told Il Messagero. "I will stay on for next season at least and we are already working towards strengthening the squad. I am used to all the reports and they will probably continue, but it's not a problem."

Meanwhile, recent reports in the British press have linked England international midfielder David Beckham with a move to Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur next season.

The 33-year-old is currently on-loan at the San Siro from the L.A. Galaxy until the end of the current Serie A campaign when he will return to the American club.

However, Beckham's contract with the Galaxy is due to expire in November, and Ancelotti is confident he will then return to Il Diavolo and put pen to paper on a permanent contract.

"Beckham will return to the United States and will stay there until the end of his contract, which expires in November. Then Milan will buy him in the winter transfer market," he explained. "David has proved himself to be an exemplary professional and I honestly didn't expect him to play at such a high level."
