Ancelotti is being linked with a move away from Madrid after three years in charge as his contract is set to expire at the end of the 23/24 season.

Apart from United, the Italian has also been linked with the Brazil national team job.

However, Ancelotti has previously revealed why he rejected a move to Old Trafford.

Back in 2020, he admitted he was offered the job at United prior to Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

As per GOAL, Ancelotti said: “You want to know from me [about coaching at Man Utd]?!

“I can say that I still keep a fantastic relationship with Sir Alex, and we met when he decided to stop (retire).”

He added: “But I was close to Real Madrid, and so I appreciate the fact that at that time he talked to me. And that’s it, no other opportunity [to manage United].”

Ancelotti has previously been asked whether former Liverpool midfielder and current Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso could become his successor.

He said: “Xabi Alonso? He can be a future Real Madrid manager, without a doubt. He can do this job; he has all the qualities to be a good manager.

“I like him and how he coaches his team. He's one of the managers I like the most.”

Speaking ahead of Madrid’s Champions League clash against Napoli, Ancelotti was asked about his future. As per Fabrizio Romano, the Italian replied: “I don’t speak about my future, sorry.
