Carlo Ancelotti is driving a sensational Real Madrid move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. The Daily Mail says Ancelotti will consider a move for Wayne Rooney this summer if the unhappy striker fails to patch up his differences with Manchester United.

Bookmakers have slashed the odds on Rooney switching to the Bernabeu from 40-1 to 10-1 as his United future hangs in the balance.

Former Chelsea boss Ancelotti is set to be confirmed as Jose Mourinho's replacement on Monday and will be handed a transfer hit-list that includes Rooney, Gareth Bale, Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez.

Rooney, who has two years left on his contract, will hold talks with new United boss David Moyes after both return from holiday over the next few days but it appears unlikely he will change his mind about seeking a fresh start.
