Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has rejected suggestions that he was offered the opportunity to replace Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager last year.

There had been reports that Ferguson considered Ancelotti as his successor before nominating David Moyes, who endured an ill-fated spell at the helm at Old Trafford, but the former Chelsea boss has rejected those claims.

"No, no," the Real coach told the Daily Mail. "Not true. When I decided to leave PSG I had the opportunity to come here. I didn't want to stay at PSG.

"When I went there it was supposed to be about creating something. But after one year that had changed and it was just about the next result.

"When we went out in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, they started to complain. I decided it was time to go."
