Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti won't rule out bidding for AC Milan pair Alexandre Pato and Andrea Pirlo.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti won't rule out bidding for AC Milan pair Alexandre Pato and Andrea Pirlo.

“Chelsea have never made an offer for Pirlo and Pato, but that doesn’t mean we won’t do so in the future,” he commented.

“It is a strange transfer market, pumped up by Real Madrid’s shock buys. It’s difficult to sign anyone in this climate, but there is time until August 31.”

Ancelotti admits he's been pleasantly surprised by his treatment from the local media.

“The most substantial difference is the pressure around the team and the Coach. It has been a very ‘soft’ start to the season for me,” he added.
