REVEALED: Ancelotti rejected Inter Milan offer ahead of Real Madrid return

New Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti turned down Inter Milan last week, it has been revealed.

Ancelotti quit Everton to return to Real Madrid in a whirlwind move on Tuesday.

However, AS says the Italian also had a proposal from Inter Milan, which he refused to consider out of loyalty to AC Milan, which he served as player and coach.

A message was relayed to Inter's board via Ancelotti's minders: "Who I am today, I have Milan supporters to thank for. I can not disappoint them."

Inter would then turn to former Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi, whose appointment was confirmed on Thursday.
