Ancelotti says 'yes' to Chelsea owner Abramovich

There's fresh talk today of AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti agreeing to join Chelsea.

The Daily Star says Ancelotti has agreed to become the next manager of Chelsea.

The Italian said ‘Yes’ earlier this week and talks are continuing about the contract he will sign with the Blues.

Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich is keen to have more involvement in recruitment and has now persuaded Ancelotti to quit Milan after eight years.
