"James is a player who has fantastic quality", Ancelotti said.

Manchester United have been given fresh hope in their pursuit of Renato Sanches with Carlo Ancelotti conceding that the Portugal worldwide could leave Bayern Munich before the end of the transfer window.

Having had Morata under his tutelage when he was in charge of Real Madrid, Ancelotti believed the potential in Morata is enormous.

"In my time at Real Madrid he played central striker sometimes, sometimes he played on side, in all positions with efficiency". "I know there are rumours - Vidal will stay with us, 100 per cent", the Italian said in a press conference ahead of facing English champions Chelsea at International Champions Cup.

The chances of Bayern selling Vidal are slim to none, especially if we consider that Xabi Alonso retired last season.

United have struggled to make headway in a deal to sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, while have also been told by Tottenham that Eric Dier is not for sale at any price.

It is claimed Inter boss Luciano Spalletti has reportedly demanded 4-5 new players, with one of them being Arturo Vidal.

Speaking in Singapore on the eve of a friendly with Chelsea, Ancelotti said about Sanches: "It could be a possibility, but it can also be a possibility to stay with us".

"I think he gives us something extra between the lines (attack and midfield), especially in terms of the final pass to the strikers", Ancelotti added of the Colombian, who joined Bayern on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid.

"They have bought really good players, the team is better compared to last year", explained the former Chelsea coach to the Evening Standard. "I'm here to win titles and, with the help of my players and coach, we will do it".

"But I don't feel pressure". He has also played a lot of games in the Champions League and won it last season.
