Carlo Ancelotti “has asked us to leave for Real Madrid,” confirmed PSG director general Leonardo.
The former Milan and Juventus Coach has been the hot favourite for the Bernabeu, as Jose Mourinho is expected to join Chelsea next month.
“The Coach has asked us to leave for Real Madrid,” Leonardo told L’Equipe newspaper this evening.
“We expressed our intentions, which are obviously for him to remain.”
Ancelotti secured the Ligue 1 title last week in his first full season at Paris Saint-Germain.
