The latest reports from Italy and London suggest that Carlo Ancelotti is all set to succeed Guus Hiddink as the new Chelsea boss. AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi admitted that he is seeking a successor to Ancelotti.

Not more than a week ago, Ancelotti had denied his links with Chelsea saying he had no plans to be the boss at Stamford Bridge. But, Chelsea are hopeful that the managerial legend would leave San Siro by the end of this season and join the Blues.

Ancelotti has been the boss of AC Milan for the last eight years. He had been taking English lessons every week for the past one year in preparation to join the Blues.

AC Milan are looking forward to sign Sacchi or Capello as their new boss.
