The media has linked AC Milan’s general manager Adriano Galliani’s trip to Madrid with his intention to hold talks with Carlo Ancelotti and discuss over the coach return to the Serie A club next season. Although Galliani would not clearly reveal what the purpose of his Monday visit, he did suggest that he was there for an Italian.
Galliani is heading to Spanish capital but would not confirm or deny if he would be seeing the former Rossoneri boss. “There are two clubs in Italia with whom we have a great relationship and who have great players,” stated Galliani. “I’ve not said I’m going for Ancelotti. Let’s just see what happens. The important thing is we restore Milan to their former glory,” he added.
It has been a talking about the Ancelotti’s return to AC Milan where he won two Champions League titles. Concluding the season in second place behind Barcelona and losing in the semifinal of the Champions League to Juventus, the Italian coach is expected to lose his job in Real Madrid. On the other hand, the current Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi is also likely to end his duty at the club this summer even though he has asked for a second chance.
Ancelotti held his coaching duty for AC Milan between 2001 and 2009 and led the team to victory over Juventus in the 2003 Champions League final and over Liverpool in the 2007 match. The former Rossoneri manager has been recently linked with a return to San Siro over the past week, as AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi claiming on Saturday (23/5) that he would pursue a move for the coach.
“Ancelotti is the Real Madrid coach right now and Filippo Inzaghi is in charge at Milan. It will be a long summer and it has not even started yet,” Galliani explained later. While Milan will not be playing in Europe next season for a second year as they only finish this campaign in the ninth position.
