MANCHESTER UNITED and Arsenal have been handed a transfer boost after Carlo Ancelotti said he doesn't care if his three-time Champions League winner quits Real Madrid.
Marco Asensio, who is out of contract at the end of the season, scored as Real Madrid beat bottom side Elche 4-0 in LaLiga on Wednesday night.
Speaking after the match to Diario AS, Ancelotti was quizzed on the forward's future and wasn't very endearing with his response.
He said: "He looks good to me, I don’t know if he will stay or not. He may or may not stay, I don’t know, I don’t care much."
Ancelotti added: "We have a very important challenge this season.
"The important thing is that he is contributing, like last year. Let him continue like this, and the club will make the most appropriate decision."

The Spaniard has also been subject to interest from Arsenal and it remains to be seen if he will come to the Premier League in the summer.
