Carlo Ancelotti has told Chelsea he will not leave AC Milan to coach the Blues next season.
Chelsea confirmed on Wednesday that Guus Hiddink would manage the side until the end of the season, but Ancelotti is reportedly owner Roman Abramovich's main candidate to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari in the long term.
However, AC Milan coach Ancelotti, who is under contract until June 2010, told www.calciomercato.com: "The only club that has made a move to sign me has been Chelsea."
"In the summer I met Abramovich but I didn't want to leave AC Milan.
"The same thing happens now, I am not thinking about leaving."
Ancelotti, 49, is the longest serving manager in Italy's top flight after joining the Rossoneri in 2001.
And it is not the first time he has been linked with a move away from the San Siro.
"Even seven years ago this happened," Ancelotti added. "At this point of the season the same story comes out but I am not worried."
