Italian was sacked by Bayern Munich and immediately linked with San Siro return, but he wants their big Serie A rivals
CARLO ANCELOTTI will snub AC Milan in the hopes of becoming Juventus’ new manager in the summer.
The Rossoneri are expected to soon dispense with Vincenzo Montella after an underwhelming start to a season which promised so much.
Milan’s new Chinese owners spent big in the summer — and demanded immediate success.
However, they have lost four of their first eight Serie A matches, and former boss Ancelotti was swiftly linked with a return following his sacking at Bayern Munich.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager enjoyed huge success with Milan, having won the Champions League twice.
However, he is unwilling to make a return to a club which clearly has no direction and is keen on a second crack at another of his former clubs: Juventus.
Failure to win the Champions League again could see Massimiliano Allegri leave in the summer — especially with the defence of their domestic title under serious threat this season.
Juventus have won the Scudetto for the past six seasons, but find themselves in fourth place and five points behind leaders Napoli after a first home loss for over two years.
Ancelotti, 58, managed the Old Lady between 1999 and 2001, but endured one of the worst periods of his managerial career.
In his first season, they finished in seventh place and blew a two-goal lead in the Champions League semi-finals to bow out against Manchester United.
