Carlo Ancelotti confirmed on Sunday that he wants to quit French champions Paris Saint-Germain to pave the way for an expected switch to Real Madrid.

“My wish is to leave the club,” said the Italian after meeting president Naser al-Khelaifi. “I have asked the club to leave. We are going to wait for a response from the club who are going to take a few days to decide.”

Ancelotti is widely expected to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid in the summer with the Portuguese tipped for a return to Chelsea. “We met with the president and with Leo (sporting director Leonardo). We’ll have to wait a few days,” added Ancelotti, who this season led PSG to a first title since 1994.
