Former San Siro boss hopes to make use of uncertainty at Serie A giants to pick up Italian international.
Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen on landing AC Milan striker Marco Borriello and hopes that the still vacant managerial position at the San Siro has created enough uncertainty to give the west London club a chance of picking up the Italian international.
The 28 year old Naples born forward took seven years to finally prove to the Rossoneri club that he was up for the task of a first team spot, during which time he spent loan periods at five different clubs, finally getting into gear during a successful stint at Genoa.
Last term Borriello managed 14 goals from 29 starts and is a player that Ancelotti is known to admire, he was indeed the man who brought the former Treviso man to the San Siro, and is hoping to sign him in order to expand his attacking options.
The Premier League champions know that Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka are not getting any younger and the £18m rated striker may well be tempted by the idea of a return to working under his former boss and the financially stricken Serie A club may feel that they can afford to sell Borriello over the likes of Alexandre Pato and Andrea Pirlo.
