Carlo Ancelotti: No More New Arrivals At Chelsea

Carlo Ancelotti has stated that Chelsea will make no more signings in the current transfer window...

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that the club's summer spending is now over.

The Blues have moved to bring in just three new players during the current transfer window with Daniel Sturridge, Ross Turnbull and Yuri Zhirkov arriving at Stamford Bridge.

Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery and AC Milan's Andrea Pirlo have been consistently linked with a switch to the west London club while Argentine striker Sergio Aguero is another name that has been suggested.

Carlo Ancelotti will take charge of his first competitive fixture as manager of Chelsea on Sunday against Manchester United in the Community Shield at Wembley and the former Milan boss has claimed that there are no plans to add to the squad which is already in place.

"Now we stay with the players I've got. I don't want to take other players because the squad is very competitive," Ancelotti told The Press Association.

"We don't need other players and I don't expect to make any more signings before the window shuts."

The Italian also moved to deny that Portuguese international duo Deco and Ricardo Carvalho would be leaving the club in the near future.

"We never talked about selling Carvalho or Deco," confirmed the 50-year-old Chelsea boss.

"They are important players for Chelsea. Carvalho is a very intelligent defender and Deco has a great quality. This team needs the quality of Deco. They will stay at Chelsea for this season.

"We don't have the idea to sell the players. If one player is not happy to stay with us, he has to say it to us. But at the moment nobody has asked to go."
