Di Maria, 26, is currently on an extended holiday after helping Argentina reach the final of the 2014 World Cup but has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking after Real Madrid's preseason friendly against Inter Milan, Ancelotti told reporters there have been no developments. "I don't have any news about Di Maria" he said. "I know the same about him as I do about the others. He has finished the World Cup and on Aug. 5 he has to be at Valdebebas."

AS report PSG have lodged a bid of 75 million euros for the winger and want to complete a deal as soon as possible in order to facilitate the sale of Edinson Cavani or Ezequiel Lavezzi.

The report continues that Ancelotti is keen to hold on to Di Maria but faces a struggle to convince the former Benfica player who has set his heart on a move to the French capital.
