Chelsea: carlo ancelotti deals?

Chelsea are happy for Carlo Ancelotti to have a say on a summer squad clearout, it has been revealed. The Telegraph says AC Milan boss Ancelotti is understood to have finally made a commitment to leave the San Siro and join Chelsea on a three-year contract. According to a report in the British broadsheet The Telegraph, Carlo Ancelotti has been promised huge financial backing for transfers after agreeing to take over as Chelsea manager.

Apparently, the Italian has decided he will depart Milan at the end of the season to take over at Stamford Bridge on a three-year contract. As part of the deal, it is claimed that Blues owner Roman Abramovich has promised to give the 49-year-old at least €56.6 million (£50m) to strengthen the squad during the summer.

Apparently, Arsenal forward Emmanuel Adebayor is a top target, with the west London club setting aside in excess of €22.6m (£20m) in order to land him. It is also thought that Chelsea will pay €17m (£15m) to acquire the services of Russian international winger Yuri Zhirkov from CSKA Moscow. The west London club are also said to be keeping tabs on Argentina international Carlos Tevez, whose loan deal with Manchester United is due to expire this summer. It is uncertain whether the Red Devils will pay the reported €22.6m (£20m) being asked for the 25-year-old's rights, with Chelsea allegedly ready to pounce should he become available.

Chelsea will also conduct a clear-out of some of their underperforming stars in the overhaul that they want Ancelotti to oversee. Among those under scrutiny are French internationals Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka, along with Deco.
