But Italian happy to see out contract with Premier League champions
Ancelotti continues to be linked with the Giallorossi, who many believe are looking for a permanent coach in the summer following the departure of Claudio Ranieri and the seemingly interim appointment of Vincenzo Montella.
But the former AC Milan coach is biding his time, suggesting a move back to the capital club, where he played as a midfielder, remains a long-term aim.
"Coaching la 'Magica' has always been my desire. I have expressed many times that it is my wish to coach Roma," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport's 'Extra Time'.
"However, this doesn't mean that I will do it tomorrow. I hope to stay at Chelsea as I am well in London, and I have a year's contract."
The Blues have not had the best of seasons, leading to speculation he could leave at the end of term after seeing his side fall to fifth and 15 points away from retaining their Premier League trophy.
"If they send me away at Chelsea? It means I will be a tourist for one year," he concluded.
