Ancelotti urges Milan to grab Chelsea star

Carlo Ancelotti has advised old club AC Milan to raid his former employers Chelsea for either Didier Drogba or Nicolas Anelka in the January transfer window.
Milan, the reigning Serie A champions, are looking for an experienced striker after Antonio Cassano was ruled out for the rest of the season following heart surgery.
And ex-Blues boss Ancelotti said Drogba and Anelka, who are both out of contract at the end of the season, would be ideal replacements.
“Certainly – they are great players in good physical condition,” said the Italian, who coached Milan for seven seasons.
“They are players of great quality and attitude. I would see both of them fitting in very well at Milan - but that doesn’t that one of the two are going to go.”
Ancelotti also denied rumours he is set to take over as boss of Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain.
“I want to stay in England,” he stated.
