Leonardo: We want to keep Ancelotti

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has insisted that the club will do all they can to keep Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian Coach has been heavily linked with succeeding Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid next season.

But the Brazilian administrator has claimed that the capital side will try everything to keep the tactician.

“We have always believed in keeping Carlo,” he told Le Parisien. “We need him – it's better for the club that he remains. It is better to continue with him.

“The situation with Carlo is like that of a player who has an offer on the table. It has to be discussed.

“He has to tell us what's going to happen. He still has a contract with us. What's important is to talk and know what he's thinking. Honestly, we don't know. We'll talk to Carlo.”
