In Germany, Munich expect the Italian manager to remain with the side until atleast the end of the 2017/18 campaign, however there have been no further talks to extend this, which could be a sign that the club want to move forward with a new face at the helm, regardless of what Ancelotti does with the team in the next two seasons.
