Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has urged Blues owner Roman Abramovich to fund a move for Inter Milan ‘s Wesley Sneijder , according to Italian sources.
Sneijder was perhaps Inter’s most influential player last season as the club swept to an unprecedented Treble. And he put in some outstanding performances for Holland in the summer as his national team reached the World Cup final.
He has scored two goals and set up two more this season. But although the side has just clinched the club World Cup, things aren’t too rosy at Inter, who are in seventh place in Serie A, 13 points behind their bitter rivals AC Milan, who top the table. And speculation over the future of boss Rafa Benitez has added to the unrest at the Treble winners.

Whilst there may well now be a little in the way of uncertainty at the San Siro it does seem highly unlikely that Chelsea would succesfully snap up Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder, in fact in many ways now that Rafa Benitez has been fired things can only really get better for the Serie A side.
Carlo Ancelotti is looking at potential new signings that he feels can improve his Premier League winning squad and has asked Chelsea Chairman Roman Abramovich to finance big money moves in the summer and the Italian has earmarked a move for the Dutch international as well as Tottenham star Luka Modric, another player who it seems may not be a realistic target given just how important the Croat is to the White Hart Lane side.
