Manchester United have conceded that they will be unable to lure Carlo Ancelotti to the club as the replacement for David Moyes, with the Italian coach’s proposed departure from Real Madrid beyond unlikely after he led them to the Champions League final.

Louis van Gaal has long since been the favourite to succeed Moyes, but Manchester United are reported to have harboured a genuine desire to recruit Ancelotti. However, according to The Telegraph, these hopes have finally been abandoned given Ancelotti’s secure position at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ancelotti, in his maiden season with Real Madrid, has ensured the club have reached a first Champions League final for 12 years and, with it, achieve a shot at a much coveted 10th European Cup success. Real Madrid’s journey to Lisbon has also been the significant gain of Van Gaal, who now appears to be the only contender to join Manchester United.

It is claimed Van Gaal is set to be confirmed as the next permanent manager of Manchester United by early next week having held negotiations over a proposed three-year contract. Van Gaal needs his future clarified before May 7, with the 62-year-old set to begin a pre-World Cup training camp with the Netherlands on this date.

The key issue in negotiations so far has been with regards to Van Gaal’s potential backroom staff, with the Netherlands coach reported to want to bring as many as five others with him to Old Trafford.
