Real Madrid president Fernando Martin said he will sign the team's new coach for next season within "two or three weeks."

That would appear to confirm that current coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro will not continue after June. Martin gave no indication whom will be Madrid's sixth coach since it last won a trophy in 2003.

"We'll soon have a new coach, probably in two or three weeks," Martin told Canal Plus TV late on Monday.

Sports daily Marca said on Tuesday that Martin may offer the position to AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti, even though his contract runs to 2007. Other reported candidates are Juventus' Fabio Capello and Liverpool's Rafa Benitez.

Martin took charge after Florentino Perez resigned on Feb 27.
