AC Milan coach Ancelotti denies Chelsea contact

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed talk of a move to Chelsea.

"I'm staying at AC Milan for sure, and for many seasons to come," the Italian said. "I've not spoken to anyone at Chelsea - any other reports are football talk and pure speculation."

Earlier AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani had denied Ancelotti met Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich during a visit to Paris on Monday.

The Rossoneri boss was reported to have met the Russian at the Four Seasons hotel in the French capital to discuss terms to take over at Stamford Bridge, but Galliani has been assured by Ancelotti the reports are incorrect.

"I have spoken to Ancelotti and can confirm that he was in Paris on Monday, but not to meet Abramovich," Galliani said. "That is something he has denied expressively. He was in Paris on his own business.

"Ancelotti is coach of Milan and will continue to be so."
