Manchester United target spits his dummy out over substation

Real Madrid were held to a 0-0 draw away from home against third tier side Olimpic Xativa in the Copa del Rey. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale didn’t play in the game and the weakened side couldn’t come up with the goods in their absence.

Angel Di MarĂ­a, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, was subbed off after 56 minutes as Ancelotti looked to change things around. The player let his anger with the decision known, as he stormed off straight down the tunnel.

Reports suggest that he is keen to leave in the January transfer window but Ancelotti has denied this will happen.

“He has not talked about his future. He is happy here and he will not leave Real Madrid.”
