Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that Angel Di Maria has asked to leave Real Madrid, heightening the speculation linking the Argentina international with a transfer to Manchester United.

The 26-year-old’s future has been a constant source of uncertainty this summer, with Louis van Gaal reportedly keen on bringing the winger to Old Trafford.

We will find a solution for Di Maria before the end of the transfer window

Now, Ancelotti has confirmed that Di Maria, who has 52 Argentina caps to his name, has officially requested to leave the Bernanbeu.

“The player has requested a transfer this summer. He rejected the club’s offer to stay at Madrid, so we are looking for a solution,” Ancelotti said when asked about Di Maria.

“We will find a solution for Di Maria before the end of the transfer window, but he remains a Madrid player for now. We are in a situation that the player has to fix himself.

“I’m surprised that it seems as if we are not all in agreement about the situation, but this is not the case. We are all on the same line here.

“If Di Maria cannot find a solution for his future, he will stay here. We embrace him and he can continue to work here. There’s no problem.

“Di Maria could start in the second leg of the Supercopa de Espana against Atletico, like all the players who are available.”
