Carlo Ancelotti admits there is a chance he could still be at Paris Saint-Germain next season but he first needs to "clarify things" with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
The Italian's future with the Ligue 1 side has been at the centre of recent speculation and earlier this week PSG revealed they turned down an approach for their coach by Real Madrid.
Ancelotti has enjoyed a successful 17-month spell in the French capital, leading them to a runners-up finish in 2011/12 before lifting the league title this season.
And the 53-year-old admits he would be reluctant to leave PSG so soon.
"Of course there is a chance that I will stay," he told L'Equipe. "Today it is 50/50.
"I am settled here and I'm not a person who likes change.
"I was a little disappointed when I left Chelsea (in 2011). And if I leave Paris there will inevitably be sadness, that's normal.
"But in the meantime I want to clarify things (with the president). This applies to everything that has happened this season. A lot has gone on, some of it great, some not so great."
Ancelotti also played down the Madrid link, saying: "I have not met either Real Madrid's sporting director of the president."
The Minstermen sealed another season in the Football League with victory at Dagenham & Redbridge on the final day.
Manager Nigel Worthington, who replaced Gary Mills in March, steered his side to four wins and two draws in their last six matches as they finished four points above the bottom two.
"The fans have been phenomenal, home and away since I've been here," Worthington said.
"They have got behind the team and have made a big difference. The away support at York City has amazed me.
"There were 1,200 there for our final league game at Dagenham & Redbridge and that speaks volumes for themselves and York City."
