AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi says it is unlikely he will be able to lure Pep Guardiola to the San Siro.
Guardiola, who left Barcelona in the summer after winning two Champions Leagues and three La Liga titles in a four-year spell with the club, told a news conference at the FIFA Ballon d'Or gala in Zurich that he wants to return to coaching.
"I don't have a team to go to but I would like to go back to coaching," he said. "I have taken a decision to return to coaching but beyond that no decision has been taken."
The 41-year-old has been linked with a host of Europe's top sides, including the Rossoneri, who are currently managed by Massimiliano Allegri.
Berlusconi told reporters: "(You ask) if Allegri will stay at Milan next season? I have to say the truth? Please, ask me another question.
"I always tried to bring him (Guardiola) to Milan, because over the last (few) years because Barcelona played the best football.
"We contacted him, but he said he wanted to stay in a sabbatical.
"He said that at Milan he'd have fun and felt admiration towards me, and appreciation for the Lake Como, where I could offer a beautiful villa. At this moment, I have to say the percentage for him to come to Milan is very low."
