Chelsea know price for AC Milan playmaker Pirlo

Chelsea have been told they can sign AC Milan midfielder Andrea Pirlo for £20 million.

Carlo Ancelotti, who is set to be named as Chelsea's new manager next week, is keen to take one or two players with him from Milan to Stamford Bridge, with Pirlo his No 1 target, says the Telegraph.

And while Ancelotti accepts that it may prove impossible to prevent Kaka from joining Real Madrid, the 49-year-old remains hopeful that Chelsea will launch a formal bid for Pirlo who is the kind of creative play-maker that he feels is lacking at Stamford Bridge.
