Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has laughed off claims he is moving to China.
The Italian is currently in charge of Bayern Munich, but it was recently reported he would soon be off.
Former Bayern winger Mario Basler sparked the speculation, telling German media last week Ancelotti had already signed a contract with a Super League side.
However, the 58-year-old has now responded to the rumours - labelling them a "joke".
"I am supposed to be here to speak about serious things," Ancelotti told Sport1.
"This is a joke. You have to ask Basler if he is so convinced. I think it is a joke.
"You know the problem is few people understand it's a joke — a lot of people have taken it seriously."
