Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that he has received a proposal from Real Madrid after announcing his intention to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.
The Italian has long been rumoured to be set to depart the Parc des Princes this summer despite guiding Les Parisiens to their first Ligue 1 title in 18 years and Los Blancos have repeatedly been mooted as his likeliest destination.
Ancelotti was voted the French top flight's joint-best coach along with Saint-Etienne's Christophe Galtier on Sunday but, after the awards ceremony, he underlined his desire to leave PSG, though he did not provide an explanation.
"I had a meeting with the president and Leonardo and I asked to leave the club. Now, I must wait for their response to discover my fate," Ancelotti told Canal+ after picking up his UNFL accolade.
"I turned off my phone [before I arrived at the award ceremony]. I have opportunities [from other teams] and Real Madrid are one of them.
"We will make a decision together because my intention is to leave the club. It's not easy because I have a very good relationship with everyone [at PSG], especially the players.
"This is not the right time to explain the reasons and maybe I will never explain why."
