Carlo Ancelotti has moved to deal a blow to any plans Manchester City & Chelsea were preparing concerning a massive deal to bring Sergio Ramos to the Premier League.

Only this morning did reports emerge that stated Los Blancos president Florentino Perez was open to the concept of selling the Spain defender for around €65million- fuelled in part by his terrible disciplinary record.

However Ancelotti appears to stand on the other side of the fence concerning Ramos' position at the club, and, according to Portuguese source A Bola, is adamant that he is not for sale at any price.

"[I] Do not approve the departure of Ramos. It is one of the best center in the world. We Pepe and Ramos, two players with much experience, and Varane and Nacho, two young veteran players who need to grow," the Italian said.

Both Manchester City and Chelsea have been linked with the 28-year-old, who is considered a mainstay in the Real Madrid squad.

Jose Mourinho and Manuel Pellegrini have each worked with Ramos in the past during their respective spells with the Spanish giants, but Ancelotti is adamant that the speculation surrounding Perez's willingness to sell the star to either of the former Madrid bosses is not to be treated as gospel truth.

"I speak lot with the president and never talked about it. Everyone knows the importance of Ramos at the club. The president has a very good relationship with all the players," the former AC Milan manager finished.
