Ancelotti: Drogba staying put

2010-08-25 12:05

Johannesburg - Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says star striker Didier Drogba will definitely not be leaving for Real Madrid.

The Ivory Coast ace, 32, has made himself a legend at Stamford Bridge over the last six years, leading the line with great success in recent seasons.

Drogba has already bagged himself three goals in the Premier League this term, and was the league's top scorer with 29 strikes to his name during the last campaign.

He has been linked with a possible switch to Los Merengues, where he would be reunited with former Blues manager Jose Mourinho, but Ancelotti insists he is going nowhere.

He told Sky Italia: "Drogba to Real Madrid? He is happy to stay here, is happy with his moment and we don't deprive ourselves of a player like him."

Meanwhile, Ancelotti aired his views on two other renowned frontmen, Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is thought to be nearing a move to AC Milan, and new Manchester City signing Mario Balotelli.

The Italian coach admits he tried to sign Ibrahimovic when he was manager of the Rossoneri, and believes Balotelli will do well in England.

He added: "Ibrahimovic to Milan? In 2006 I wanted to take him, then the deal vanished. At Milan he would do well."

While on Balotelli, Ancelotti remarked: "He's very good. City have made a good buy, but I never said I was afraid of him."
