Ancelotti 'not 100 per cent sure' over PSG future

The Italian insists that he has not spoken to any other club as speculation continues to link him with a summer move to Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he is "not 100 per cent" sure whether he will stay at Paris Saint-Germain next season.

The former AC Milan and Chelsea coach is set to mark his first full campaign at the club with a Ligue 1 title, having already guided les Parisiens to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they were beaten by Barcelona over two legs.

However, speculation has linked Ancelotti with a summer switch to Real Madrid if Jose Mourinho departs the Santiago Bernabeu, with the 53-year-old offering no guarantees over his future.

"I cannot say that I will stay 100 per cent. The decision will be taken at the end of the season. I have not yet spoken with the club. We will only talk when the title is won. There is still time to discuss my future," he told reporters.

"I haven't told the club that I want to leave, this is not true. I have not spoken with any other club. I don't have a free choice. I must take my contract, which expires in June 30, 2014, into consideration.

"The project will go on [regardless of whether I stay or not]. I don't think the players you mentioned [Marco Verratti and Zlatan Ibrahimovic] will leave. They're all happy to be here and make this project work.

"The relationship with the players has been good. I've encountered problems with some players at times but they showed me respect all the time, and I showed it to them too."

Ancelotti then looked ahead to the forthcoming clash with Evian - the side who recently dumped PSG out of the Coupe de France - and expressed his hope that they would avenge their defeat en route to a likely championship triumph.

"Lucas [Moura] can't play. Ibra had a problem yesterday but is available. Thiago Motta is suspended," he added.

"I don't expect a rematch, but I hope to see the same attitude that we displayed against Nice [which ended in a 3-0 victory].

"It must be the same because the title is very close. Everyone is focused."
