Unsurprisingly, the club which Carlo Ancelotti wishes to retire at is Real Madrid. As per Fabrizio Romano, Ancelotti has said that his career will finish in the Spanish capital and as far as a timeframe goes, Ancelotti will retire when his beloved club decides it is best to do so.

In his own words, Ancelotti said: “I will retire as Real Madrid manager. My career will finish at Real Madrid. As long as Real Madrid want me to stay, I will be here available for the club”.

Needless to say, Carlo Ancelotti will never truly "leave" Real Madrid. His imprint on the club will last for generations and the current crop of young players he has inspired will surely devote their future successes to the tutelage of the Italian football philosopher.

Carlo Ancelotti has travelled Europe, winning all five of the world's major leagues. AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid can all boast the honour of having been mentored by Ancelotti.

Right now, Ancelotti is on the precipice of a pretty impressive treble. Having already won La Liga and the Supercopa de España this season, he could lead Real Madrid to glory in the UEFA Champions League final against Dortmund, adding not only to his personal honours list but that of Real Madrid. Real are the most successful club in Champions League history by some distance, it must be said.
