Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that star duo Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria have rejected the chance to extend their Real Madrid careers.

"Khedira's situation is different because he has just a year left on his contract and has rejected a new one. We will see what happens, but his situation is different because he has not asked to leave."

Khedira's current deal expires at the end of the season and will be allowed to leave on a free next July.

Bayern Munich are favourites to land the player, who reportedly seeks a move back to Germany.
