Milan transfer chief believes that Italian coach could return to Italy at the end of the season after just two years in England because he loves Rome

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani believes that Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti could join Roma as their coach for next season.

Ancelotti’s future with the Blues is up in the air and suggestions are rife that his failure to win the Champions League will lead the English club’s owner Roman Abramovich to sack him at the end of the current campaign. understands that Ancelotti and Roma have agreed a deal and that the Italian will move to the Eternal City once the takeover of the club by American tycoon Thomas DiBenedetto is complete.

Milan CEO Galliani has now given his take on the matter and says that he will not be surprised to see Ancelotti return to Italy.

“Carlo loves Roma a lot. He loves the city,” Galliani told Sky Italia. “They were his first team at the highest level.

“He has Roma in his heart, but I don't want to get involved in other people's business.”

Ancelotti, 51, played for Roma between 1979 and 1987 and was the Milan coach from 2001 until 2009, winning the Serie A title once and the Champions League twice.
