‘Coentrao has asked to leave’

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that Fabio Coentrao has asked to leave the club this summer.

The Portugal international has been heavily linked with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu, having been rumoured as a possible make-weight in the Gareth Bale deal.

And the Italian Coach has confirmed that the defender wants a transfer.

“The situation hasn't changed, apart from with Coentrao's position,” he told a Press conference.

“Coentrao has asked to leave and he won't play tomorrow. Apart from him, I think the rest of the players here want to be here.”
