Chelsea to swap Drogba for Kaka?
Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed the possibility of swapping Didier Drogba for Real Madrid's Kaka as 'fantasy football'.
Drogba's future with the Blues has been thrown into uncertainty following the arrival of Fernando Torres, who has been preferred over the Ivory Coast striker in the past two games.
That has led to speculation linking the once indispensable Drogba away from Stamford Bridge to a possible reunion with former mentor Jose Mourinho at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The pair enjoyed a close relationship during the Portuguese's time at Chelsea and reports have claimed that the Special One would relish having the powerful striker to boost his Madrid attack.
But Ancelotti has played down such rumours and told La Repubblica, "Will I ask [Chelsea owner Roman] Abramovich for Kaka, [Alexandre] Pato or [Andrea] Pirlo? We have already taken Ramires, Torres and David Luiz.
"The exchange of Kaka for Drogba is fantasy football."
The Italian added, "I don't think that Chelsea have spent a lot in the last year.
"We added five players from the youth system instead of five with high salaries."
Chelsea play Manchester United next at Stamford Bridge on 1 March.
