Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has refuted claims Arsenal and Manchester United target Angel Di Maria will leave the club in January, reports

The Argentina international has been linked with moves to Arsenal, Manchester United and Monaco as he has failed to hold down a regular starting spot under Ancelotti.

Reports had suggested Di Maria was becoming disillusioned with life at the Santiago Bernabeu and was keen on leaving the club in the winter transfer window in order to keep his place in Argentina’s squad for next summer's World Cup.

However Ancelotti, who substituted Di Maria in Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey clash against Olimpic Xativa, has rubbished reports suggesting the 25-year-old is on the verge of leaving the La Liga giants.

"He told me he felt discomfort so I told the others to warm up and, after that, I introduced Benzema," explained Ancelotti.

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

Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester United had hoped they could prise £17m-rated Real Madrid winger Di Maria away from Ancelotti’s side given the fact he has lost his starting spot to Gareth Bale.

However their hopes appear to have been dashed after the Real Madrid boss’ latest comments.
