Manchester United are on a search for a new manager, having sacked David Moyes in recent weeks.
Louis Van Gaal appears to be top of the wishlist, with the Dutchman rumoured to sign in the near future.
According to El Confidencial, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was approached by Man United and offered €18m a year to sign.
If accepted, Carlo Ancelotti would’ve become the highest paid manager of all-time but rejected the opportunity stating that he is happy at Real Madrid.
Pep Guardiola is the highest paid manager in world football, currently earning €17m at Bayern Munich.
