    Though English giants Manchester United have long been thought to be the club with the most interest in Fabio Coentrao, it seems as though there are other potential suitors.

    According to a report from AS.com (H/T InsideSpanishFootball.com), AC Milan are the latest to inquire about Coentrao. 

    The report claims that, at the request of manager Clarence Seedorf, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani personally called Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti asking about Coentrao's availability. However, the inquiry yielded very little as Ancelotti made it clear that he did not want to sell Coentrao.

    With Ancelotti seemingly showing that he does indeed count on Coentrao, the future of the left-back could be as unpredictable as ever.
