Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for Atletico Madrid star Mario Mandzukic.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the Bayern Munich boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at the Vicente Calderon Stadium have said that the club will reject any advances for the former Bayern player.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Bayern Munich.'
