London - AC Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti insisted Tuesday that Chelsea have not made any approach to him despite reports in the British media that his advisors had reached provisional agreement for him to take over as manager at Stamford Bridge.
"I'm staying at AC Milan for sure, and for many seasons to come," Ancelotti said.
"I've not spoken to anyone at Chelsea - any other reports are football talk and pure speculation."
Meanwhile Chelsea released a statement denying any contact.
"Contrary to reports Chelsea Football Club has not reached agreement with any individual to become manager, nor have we sought permission from any organisation to talk to their manager," it said.
"We are extremely happy how our search is progressing." (dpa)
