Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed he would like to finish his career at the Santiago Bernabeu after taking charge at Real last summer and guiding them to a record tenth UEFA Champions’ League win.

The 55-year-old manager is already eyeing retirement in the Spanish capital, and the Italian is relatively young for a manager who has won three Champions’ League titles in a 19-year career.

When asked by Spanish radio station Cadena SER if he would like to emulate Sir Alex Ferguson, who spent a successful spell lasting over a quarter of a century at Manchester United, Ancelotti said: “It is unthinkable that it is 24 years at this club, but I would like to end my career in Madrid.”

The former Milan, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain boss also revealed that he would never consider managing Real’s fierce Spanish La Liga rivals Barcelona, out of loyalty.

“If I train Madrid, I can never train Barcelona,” he said.

“I have to respect my history and the history of the club that I have trained.”

Real president Florentino Perez has often been a controversial figure during his two spells at the helm, and Ancelotti insists he has never asked for any impact on first-team affairs and the manager would be willing to sign a permanent deal to work for the 67-year-old.

“(I would) Sign a permanent contract with Florentino,” he said.

“I have a very good relationship with him. He has always shown me much love, we have never had problems.”

He added: The important thing is to talk, I like to talk about what I’m doing.”

“He has never asked me about the line-up, never, not about who I put in.”
