Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out the possibility of signing Juventus star Arturo Vidal in the summer.
Vidal has been linked with a number of clubs over the last couple of months - with Premier League champions Manchester United said to be among the clubs interested in enticing the Juventus star away from Turin.
Real Madrid have also been stringently linked with a move for Vidal, however Ancelotti has now publicly stated that he is not interested in signing the 26-year-old Chilean international.
Ancelotti is more concerned about the fitness of Sami Khedira as the German midfielder has not played for Real Madrid since November 9.
Rumours of Ancelotti's apparent interest in Vidal intensified as he was spotted speaking to Juventus director Beppe Marotta at Real Madrid's training ground, however the Italian tactician has since revealed what the pair were discussing.
"He came to see the sports centre," he told La Stampa.
"In midfield we won't take anyone. We don't need anyone and [Sami] Khedira will return."
News of Real Madrid's lack of interest in Vidal would have boosted Manchester United's hope of bringing the Juventus man to Old Trafford.
However Manchester United would have to stump up at least €30million if they want to sign Vidal.
