CARLO ANCELOTTI’S arrival as manager of Chelsea has been delayed by AC Milan’s failure to clinch a Champions League spot – although club owner Silvio Berlusconi insists he won’t stand in the Italian’s way.<br /><br />The Rossoneri were expected to shed more light on Ancelotti’s move to Stamford Bridge on the assumption they beat Roma in their penultimate Serie A match, therefore sealing a top-three place.<br /><br />But a shock 3-2 defeat means Milan need a point in Sunday final game at Fiorentina to secure their place – and both manager and owner refuse to discuss the matter until that is assured.<br /><br />Speaking after the defeat, Ancelotti said: “The future? There’s not need to talk about this today. We will talk about this after the game in Florence.”<br /><br />Berlusconi shared Ancelotti’s view but hinted the club would not stand in his way should he chose to head to west London to replace the departing Guus Hiddink.<br /><br />He added: “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.<br /><br />“Let me wait for the end of the season and taking decisions that will emerge from the meeting of our will and our perspectives.”<br /><br />Chelsea, meanwhile, are reportedly leading the race to sign Austrian striker Marko Arnautovic from FC Twente.<br /><br />The 20-year-old has scored 12 goals for Steve McClaren’s men this season and is rated at £13.2m by the Dutch side. Chelsea, however, are holding out for £10.5m with Inter Milan also monitoring the situation.
