Carlo Ancelotti asks to leave PSG for Real Madrid

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo says coach Carlo

Ancelotti has asked to leave to join Real Madrid.

Ancelotti had a meeting to discuss his future with club

President Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Leonardo on Sunday.

Leonardo tells French sports newspaper L’Equipe: ”Carlo asked

to leave for Madrid, but we want him to stay. There was no firm

decision; we listened to Carlo. We have to consider everything for

a bit.”

He adds that ”the priority is still that he remains with us. We

have never contacted other managers.”

Earlier this week, Al-Khelaifi said he rebuffed a request from

Madrid’s sporting director for Ancelotti.

Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is expected to leave at the end of

the season.

Ancelotti steered PSG to its first French league title since

1994 last week.
