Ancelotti wants Villa winger Young as first Chelsea signing

Carlo Ancelotti wants to make Aston Villa winger Ashley Young his first signing as new Chelsea manager, it has been revealed.

The Sun says the AC Milan coach is being promised a big-name signing worth up to £30million by Roman Abramovich if he joins as boss this summer.

Chelsea's owner has even vowed to dip into his own pocket to pay for the transfer - something he hasn't done for two years.

And Aston Villa winger Young is top of his shopping list.

Ancelotti wants an attacking star with real pace to add a different dimension to Chelsea's play.

Villa paid Watford £9.65million for the 23-year-old two years ago and will demand double that to sell the England man.
