Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti knows he will get his hands on a massive summer transfer kitty.

The Sunday Mirror says before penning his three-year deal, Ancelotti settled on squad plans with Blues owner Roman Abramovich.

It was agreed Chelsea would limit spending during the first 12 months to assess the squad.

Abramovich also assured Ancelotti that if Chelsea came up short he would bankroll a spending spree, possibly up to £100million.
