Guardiola revealed on Wednesday that the club had accepted an offer from the Ligue 1 leaders and that the former Ajax defender had expressed a desire to leave the Nou Camp.
'Maxwell came to see us and he told us he had an offer from PSG and he would like to accept it,' Guardiola said of the 30-year-old.
'He wants to leave and if he reaches an agreement the club will not stand in the way.'
Former Chelsea boss Ancelotti took over at the Qatar-owned club last month and has a seemingly limitless budget with which to strengthen his squad.
