The Italian word for exit is: uscita. And if Chelsea aren’t careful, Italian giants AC Milan could be using the word very soon to describe the exit of Didier Drogba and Andriy Shevchenko from Stamford Bridge.
The Telegraph is reporting today that just days after AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti turned down the vacant Chelsea manager’s job, the Italian club is back at it again, only this time they’re hoping to lure both strikers away from Chelsea.
Galliani said that his relationship with the managerless Premier League club had not been damaged by the approach for Ancelotti, before claiming he spoke with Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon yesterday about Drogba and Shevchenko’s availability.
“We are speaking about Drogba, we are speaking about Shevchenko,” Gallaini has been quoted as saying. (Telegraph)
Both Drogba and Shevchenko have made it known that they would like to be moved this summer, so the news of an exit to Milan doesn’t come as a shock. But to think that both could be moved at once is somewhat of a surprise to most.
Do Chelsea supporters believe that both players could be moving on next season? Or do you think this is just more paper talk to stir the pot while the club searches for a new manager?
