REAL MADRID boss Carlo Ancelotti gave absolutely nothing away after he was quizzed about signing Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger.
The legendary Italian boss was speaking after a thrilling Champions League semi-final first leg tie away at Manchester City.
Although Real Madrid lost the game, at 4-3 down heading to the Bernabeu there is still everything to play for.
Rudiger, meanwhile, has told Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel he will leave the Londoners at the end of the season on a free transfer.
Real Madrid have emerged as the frontrunners to snap up the centre-half in what would be a big coup.
But after being asked about Rudiger following the defeat at the Etihad, Ancelotti went all coy.
He answered: “Antonio Rudiger, who is this?
“He is a Chelsea player until… he is still a Chelsea player, and I cannot say anything about this.”
Responding to the news, the former Blues captain said: “How have we let this man go,” along with three covering faces emojis.
Rudiger is reportedly closing in on a move to Real Madrid in the summer.
He is expected to sign a four-year deal which will see him earn around £300,000 a week.
