The Sun says he Blues owner met with AC Milan chief Ancelotti in Geneva on Monday to discuss his options.

He did not offer Ancelotti the job but asked his opinion on younger coaches like Frank Rijkaard, Roberto Mancini and Michael Laudrup.

The discussions followed a similar talk with England manager Fabio Capello in Moscow last week.

Red Rom spent around 45 minutes with the Italian after Chelsea's shootout defeat to Manchester United in the Champions League final.
