thumbnail Hello,

The Argentine could be sold in order to fund a move for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao but the Blancos boss says the 26-year-old remains in his plans for the coming season

Carlo Ancelotti has shrugged off speculation linking Angel Di Maria with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, pointing out that the winger is still a Real Madrid player.

Having already signed Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez for a combined €110 million, Los Blancos are willing to offload Di Maria in order to fund a move for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.

Ancelotti, though, is believed to be keen to keep the Argentina international and has now admitted that the 26-year-old is in his plans for the coming season, revealing that he is more concerned with new arrivals than potential departures.

"Di Maria? He is a Real Madrid player," the Italian coach told Corriere dello Sport.

“The club is doing very well on the transfer market and I think will continue until the last available day.

“The two new arrivals will certainly be of help. I think the current squad is already more competitive than last season.”

Di Maria, who joined Madrid from Benfica in 2010, is being tracked by Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.
