Paris Saint Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has told Italian daily La Stampa that there is 'no chance' that Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is moving to the French capital.

Ronaldo, 27, is reported to be unhappy at the Bernabeu and is unwilling to sign a new contract, sparking interest from the billionaire backed PSG and his former side Manchester United.

But Ancelotti is happy with his current squad and sees no merit to the speculation, which came from a report in Spanish sports daily AS.

"There is no chance he will come here," Ancelotti told La Stampa. "Money is not enough to tempt him, the determining factor is the will of the club he plays for.

"He is a great talent who needs to play well all the time. I like coaching great players like him, and I have several in my squad.

"What I've read in the newspapers [about Cristiano joining PSG] makes no sense. We have 30 players now that Lucas Moura has joined and I don't need anymore."

Real coach Jose Mourinho has also been linked with a move to replace Ancelotti at the Parc des Princes, but the Italian is not concerned by the rumours.

"I am very relaxed about it," he added. "The person who said the club are after Mourinho and Cristiano is a member of the Al-Thani family but he is not the owner, and I know the owner is not thinking about that."
