AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti failed to clarify his future on Saturday, saying he was staying at the club "100 percent" only to later cast doubt on the statement.
Chelsea will lose interim coach Guus Hiddink at the end of the season and have been strongly linked in the media with Ancelotti, who has a year left on his Milan contract but has not been offered a new deal.
"I am a little tired talking about these things. I am 100 percent staying at Milan," Ancelotti told a news conference ahead of Sunday's penultimate league game at home to AS Roma.
However, he later said: "I am ready for anything. The answer to where my future lies might be postponed for a few days or some years."
Milan, who hope to seal an automatic Champions League berth on Sunday, said during the week that Ancelotti's future could be clarified on Monday.
