Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says his players were not distracted by speculation linking Kylian Mbappe to the club following a 1-1 draw against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday. 
The result gave hope to title challengers, with second-placed Girona six points behind Madrid with one game in hand.
It looked like Madrid were on course for a routine win when Joselu poked home in the third minute, before Raul de Tomás equalised from the spot in the first half.
Last week, Mbappe announced his intention to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, an indication that the Los Blancos may have finally swayed their big target.

“When haven’t we been focused? I think we’ve always been (focused). And today too, when things didn’t go so well. Criticising this team this season is difficult,” insisted Ancelotti in the post-match press conference.
Ancelotti maintains his side have displayed focus in all their matches this season.
“We started very well and scored early.  After the penalty, the game changed, there were more duels, it was more of a battle, with more stoppages. It’s a draw that we’re not happy about, but we’ll keep going. We’re well positioned.
“We have to win every game, but to win the league, it’s important that if you can’t win, you don’t lose. Sometimes a draw hurts, but in the end it can be a positive step to help us win the league,” added Ancelotti.
