Carlo Ancelotti will supposedly reject any offer put to him by struggling AC Milan to become their new manager, in the hope of taking the hot seat at reigning Serie A champions Juventus at the end of the season.
The Italian was sacked as manager of Bayern Munich following a 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, and has been linked with a return to the Rossoneri since.
Ancelotti coached Milan between 2001 and 2009, delivering one Scudetto, one Coppa Italia, one Supercoppa and most famously two Champions Leagues. The general consensus now is that the club would love to re-hire him to replace Vincenzo Montella.
Milan have struggled so far this season, despite heavy investment on new players in the summer from new owner Yonghong Li - they are currently languishing in 10th and look set to struggle to finish amongst the Champions League places.
Ancelotti seems to be a target, but the former Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid manager is understood to keen on waiting for an opportunity to arise at Juventus, with Max Allegri under pressure to deliver success in the Champions League, as reported by the Sun.
Juve also face a fight to win Serie A this season, with Inter Milan, Roma, Napoli and even Lazio all looking strong early doors, and so Allegri could move on if the board are not satisfied at the end of the season.
Ancelotti, who managed the Old Lady before way back at the start of the millennium, has also supposedly turned down a lucrative offer from the Chinese Super League, while the Italian national side are also thought to be interested.
