Ancelotti dismisses Kaka Drogba swap talk



Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed talk of Chelsea swapping Didier Drogba with Real Madrid’s Brazilian playmaker Kaka, as pure ‘fantasy football.’

Drogba has struggled at Chelsea of late, and has lost his first team place to £50million man Fernando Torres, and would welcome a move to rejoin former coach Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

At the same time, Kaka’s £56million move from AC Milan to Real Madrid has not all gone well as poor performances and injuries have meant the World Cup winner has failed to set La Liga alight.

“Will I ask (owner, Roman) Abramovich for Kaka, Pato or Pirlo?” Ancelotti told an Italian paper. “We have already taken Ramires, Torres and David Luiz.

“The exchange of Kaka for Drogba is fantasy football.”

Chelsea spent £70million in the January window in an attempt to halt their slide down the league, but Ancelotti doesn’t feel it is stupid money.

He added: “I don’t think that Chelsea have spent a lot in the last year.

“We added five players from the youth system instead of five with expensive salaries.”
