Real Madrid's financially generous president Florentino Perez has announced that David Moyes wasn't Alex Ferguson's first choice to take the reins at Old Trafford as soon as he stepped down. That honour, Perez insists, belongs to his current employee Carlo Ancelotti.

Perez told reporters that Ferguson approached Ancelotti last year, offering him the chance to take over at Old Trafford, but that Ancelotti opted for Real Madrid instead.
