AC Milan have again insisted that coach Carlo Ancelotti will not be leaving the club next summer to take up the managerial reins at Chelsea.
Reports both in Italy and England continue to link Ancelotti with the Blues hot-seat, but Rossoneri general manager Adriano Galliani says that such suggestions are without foundation.
He told the club's official website: "Milan has never contacted any coach while Carlo Ancelotti has been at the club.
"Ancelotti is under contract with us through to June 30, 2010."
Cagliari coach Massimiliano Allegri has been mentioned as a possible replacement for Ancelotti if he does leave the San Siro.
