AC Milan chairman Adriano Galliani says he will not stop until he has convinced Carlo Ancelotti to return to the San Siro as manager.
Ancelotti was sacked by Real Madrid on Monday, but Galliani has wasted no time in trying to lure him back to Milan and held talks with the Italian on Tuesday.
Ancelotti’s agent has said his client wants to take a year out from the game before returning to management, but Galliani hopes to persuade him to return to Milan straight away.
“I am here to bring Ancelotti back to Milan,” Galliani said to Italian media. “I will not give up.
“I told him to say yes. There will be another meeting tomorrow (Wednesday). I am here to get him to return to Milan and tomorrow the pressing continues.”
Ancelotti led the Rossoneri to the 2004 Serie A title and two UEFA Champions League crowns, making him one of Milan’s most successful coaches.
“The negotiations with him are always good as he’s part of our family,” Galliani added. “We won 11 international trophies together and he is in our history.
“I met him for the first time in 1987 and there is an excellent rapport between us.
“This is one of those relationships that never ends. Carlo knows that, if he doesn’t say yes I will fly with him and his wife to Vancouver!”
