Chelsea Manager Carlo Ancelotti Rules Out Making Move For Inter Defender Nicolas Burdisso

Blues boss dismisses latest transfer speculation...
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out a move for Inter's Nicolas Burdisso to bolster his defensive options.

Burdisso, 29, was reported to have come under the Blues' radar to replace Ricardo Carvalho after he was sold to Real Madrid. Despite the Argentina World Cup 2010 star's availability and versatility, the Blues supremo was quick to dismiss the prospect of making an offer.

Speaking to Sky Sport 24, Ancelotti said: "There are many players I like, but we have three top defenders.

"We don't need to take on more defenders like Burdisso."

Ancelotti was also pressed on his future. He refused to deny the possibility of one day coaching Roma and Italy after he made 171 Serie A appearances and won 17 international caps during his playing career.

He said: "Italy? My dream is to coach to the best of my abilities, I don't know my future.

"I hope to continue at Chelsea, it's a great environment and atmosphere. I don't see why I should change when I am well here.

"Me on the Roma bench? I cannot answer, I cannot say a day, no-one knows the future."

The ex-Milan supremo took the time to dash any hopes Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho had of a reunion with Didier Drogba.

"If you have good players you keep them," Ancelotti stated.

"He [Drogba] is happy here, why should I get rid of him?"
