Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti claims that he has hasn’t had any contact at all this week with Manchester United.
Ancelotti once again distanced himself from the United Managing job left open with the sacking of David Moyes. It was thought that Louis van Gaal was close to finalizing a deal with the Red Devils, but apparently he wants to bring in five of his own assistants and that could crumble the deal. Which means United will have to reach out to Carlo Ancelotti, and not many others.
“I respect everyone,” said Ancelotti.
“I haven’t had contact with Manchester United.
“I want to stay at Real Madrid for a long time. It’s strange to discuss my future in the middle of a Champions League semi-final.”
If not Van Gaal or Carlo Ancelotti, then who? We know that Jurgen Klopp isn’t walking through that door. Should be a very interesting week at Old Trafford that’s for sure.
