Shevchenko will return to Chelsea

The agent of AC Milan legend Andriy Shevchenko doesn’t believe that his client will still be at the San Siro next season.

The 32-year-old Ukraine striker is currently on a season-long loan with the Rossoneri from Chelsea, but has struggled to make much of an impact back in Serie A.



Fabio Parisi told Calciomercato.it: “He is a player on loan at Milan from Chelsea and I think he will return to London.



“Frankly, I don't think it's possible that the Rossoneri will decide to keep him.



“I don't know what kind of rapport he has found with coach Carlo Ancelotti and his team-mates, the only problem is that he is a player on loan and, given how the season has gone, I think Andriy will return to Chelsea.



“If that's to stay there or not is to be seen, it depends on who will be the coach and what he wants to do. But I don't think the doors of Italy will re-open for him next season.”



Elsewhere, Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has spoken of his confidence that the Italian giants will be able to sign David Beckham on a permanent basis from LA Galaxy next November.



He told Il Messagero: “Beckham will return to the United States and will stay there until the end of his contract, which expires in November.



“Then Milan will buy him in the winter transfer market.



“David has proved himself to be an exemplary professional and I honestly didn't expect him to play at such a high level.”



Meanwhile, Ancelotti has attempted to bring to an end the speculation linking him with the Chelsea manager's job after insisting he will still be Milan coach next season.



The 49-year-old coach is rumoured to be the number one choice of the Stamford Bridge hierarchy should current interim manager Guus Hiddink stick to his word and leave his temporary post at the end of the season.



Hiddink is adamant that he will refocus his attentions on his full-time role as head coach of the Russia national team whatever the outcome of this season for his FA Cup and Champions League chasing side.



But, despite fevered speculation linking Ancelotti with a move to London in recent weeks, the two-time Champions League winning coach insists his future remains with the Rossoneri.



"I will stay on for next season at least - we are already working towards strengthening the squad," he said.



"I am used to all the reports and they will continue. It's not a problem for me."
