Reports in the Spanish Press this afternoon reveal that Carlo Ancelotti is trying desperately to keep Angel Di Maria at Real Madrid.
The Argentina international was thought to be on his way out of the club in January following Gareth Bale’s record-breaking arrival from Tottenham.
However, after Sami Khedira’s injury, the 26-year-old has been moved back into the centre of midfield, and has proved himself to be a key member of the starting XI.
Rumours still abound though, that the likes of Monaco and Manchester United are interested in signing the former Benfica man.
But Marca insist that Ancelotti is already planning for next season, and is begging the club’s hierarchy not to consider any offers for Di Maria.
