Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti remains under consideration at Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says United continue to consider him out of their reach, but lose heavily at Bayern Munich in the second leg of his Real Madrid side's Champions League semi-final tomorrow night and the Italian might yet become available.

This is something the United hierarchy are aware of, but the focus remains on Louis van Gaal, who is in a position to devote a bit of thinking time to United before he turns his full attention to Holland's World Cup campaign.
