The Independent says some sources claimed that Kenyon was brokering a deal to sell Didier Drogba to Milan - and enquiring again as to whether the Italian club will countenance allowing Kaka to go in the opposite direction, with coach Carlo Ancelotti also joining him at Stamford Bridge.
Others claimed that he was simply on holiday. If the latter is true it would point to Chelsea waiting until Euro 2008 is over before making an announcement, which would suggest that Portugal's Luiz Felipe Scolari remains the favourite.
However, according to one source, Kenyon intended to make Ancelotti "an offer he can't refuse". It's likely Chelsea will take the same approach to try to acquire Kaka, whom they have long coveted and regard as the player who could ignite the kind of football that owner Roman Abramovich craves.
