Former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and Milan sporting director, Adriano Galliani, spoke to the media about a possible reunion in the near future.
Following Real Madrid’s exit in the Champions League at the hands of Juventus and Barcelona’s title win in La Liga, los blancos president Florentino Perez relieved Carlo Ancelotti of his duties effective immediately just a year after winning the club’s 10th Champions League title in their history, la decima, together. With Ancelotti on the market and Milan’s recent struggles, Adriano Galliani flew to Spain in hopes to convince Ancelotti to return to the club and steer the ship in the right direction.
In an interview with Tuttomercatoweb, Galliani told reporters:
“I hope that the 50% chance of joining us that Ancelotti spoke about earlier becomes 100% shortly. In our meetings, we have spoken about a lot of things. He will give us a definitive response on Wednesday as on Monday he’s undergoing a small operation. Then we will see what the doctor says. If he doesn’t come to Milan, he will take a sabbatical. At least that’s what he told me.”
Ancelotti, on the other hand, caught up with Sky Sport and gave an update on his future. The former Chelsea boss said:
“I’ll talk about my future on Wednesday. I leave Madrid satisfied as the fans were fantastic. We will see if I go to Milan next season.”
According to the Milan Channel, Ancelotti’s response will only come on June 3rd as he’s undergoing an operation on Monday and he doesn’t know long he will have to take off.
