Carlo Ancelotti has told friends that he's in no rush to return to management after leaving Real Madrid this past summer, according to the Mirror.
The 56-year-old has been heavily linked with replacing Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers at Anfield.
The Mirror claim that, despite Liverpool denying that an approach for the Italian has been made, the club have made contact with the former Chelsea boss.

It appears that Ancelotti is reluctant to replace Rodgers at Anfield, with ex-Borussia Dortmund man Jurgen Klopp also linked with the role.
Much like Ancelotti, Klopp is also currently out of work, but it's far from certain as to whether the club's hierarchy will step up their reported interest in the experienced German manager. It certainly appears that they are looking at the possibility of securing the services of Ancelotti, but they may well have to work hard to persuade him to join the club.
Rodgers is in serious trouble. The Reds are clearly struggling and they must improve sooner rather than later. There appears to be a fundamental problem at the club and the Reds boss must get to the bottom of it before it's too late.
The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and co. must step up. Rodgers' creative players must provide the spark in the club's pursuit of success. One thing is for sure, Liverpool can't afford to be on the wrong end of the result tonight as they play host to League Two outfit Carlisle United in the Capital One Cup.
