AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has once more refused to confirm where the future of manager Carlo Ancelotti lies but admits the pair will hold talks.
The highly successful Milan coach has been subject of intense speculation in recent weeks linking him with the vacancy at Chelsea, left open by the departing Guus Hiddink and news is expected in the next few days about his future.
Milan lost against Roma this weekend, but could still secure the Serie A runners-up spot by beating Fiorentina on Sunday and Berlusconi maintains that no decision has been made about Ancelotti's future on Milan's behalf.
"You know well what type of friendship and esteem there is between me and him [Ancelotti] from many years," he told the Italian press.
"With Carlo we decided that we will sit around a table at the end of the league and we will take a decision.
"We are the club that have always more respected the coaches' will. But now we don't talk about a decision that must be already taken.
"Let me wait for the end of the season and taking decisions that will emerge from the meeting of our will and our perspectives."
