Ancelotti to leave AC Milan?

Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti is considering his future at Milan to leave for English Premier League side Chelsea, even though he is under contract with the Italian giants until June 30 next year. Seems like Roman Abromivich's wallet has started talking again. If Ancelotti does part with AC Milan it will be disappointing to see him go to work with the money man (Abramovich) and not stay with Milan who he helped win Lo Scudetto in 2004, and the UEFA Champions League in 2003 and 2007 and who he played for in the'80s. But after 8 years and only 3 major trophies in the cabinet, it seems like Milan can do better when it comes to the coaching staff.

In the fore-running for the job are former Milan players Leonardo, who is currently a scout at Milan, former Holland manager Marco Van Basten who has just stepped down from Ajax, and former Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard. My personal opinion is that Franco Baresi should be given a chance of managing the Italian giants to try to get back on par with their city rivals Inter who have just won Lo Scudetto under Jose Mourinho, who was the former Chelsea manager. Along with Baresi, Galliani should try to entice Ruud Gullit, Van Basten and Rijkaard as assistants to Franco Baresi, then i think that AC Milan will be a tough opponent for anyone in the world.
