Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed he will have money available to spend on new players when the transfer window opens.
Ancelotti insisted on Friday that he had the backing of club owner Roman Abramovich despite Chelsea’s recent run of poor form.
“I spoke to the owner after the game on Wednesday and we spoke about what we can do in January,” said Ancelotti.
“If we need to improve our squad in January, we’ll be able to do this.
“The owner is available for us to do this.”
It looks like Roman might be about to spend a few roubles and that must be music to the ears of Chelsea fans. In the past three transfer windows the Premier League champions have spent biggish only twice with the £18m signings of Yuri Zhirkov and Ramires both of whom have failed to live up to their price tags.
So who should Carlo buy? A centre back would be handy as would a back up for Frank Lampard. A decent substitute goalkeeper maybe? Another striker? Let us know who you would buy in the commenst section below.
