Ancelotti threatens to streak – but the transfer rumours continue

We all had a good chuckle over the festive period when Carlo Ancelotti came out with this gem: “I can tell you, I will not be buying anybody in January. Absolutely no way. I am willing to pay a forfeit if I do, even to run round the training ground naked!”

Ho, ho, ho, and all that. But the whole thing got deadly serious now that Chelsea are continuing to be linked with bids for players.

Yesterday’s People reported: “Carlo Ancelotti will make a transfer window U-turn by offering a British record £45million for Franck Ribery.”

This is very worrying indeed. If this is mind games from Carlo then he is messing with our minds a bit too much. And if the transfer speculation is the work of Roman Abramovich we can only beg you not to inflict this on us.
