Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that he has been offered a plethora of strikers this month, including Chelsea’s Fernando Torres, Manchester United‘s Dimitar Berbatov, Manchester City‘s Carlos Tevez and Napoli‘s Edison Cavani among others.
The 52-year-old stated that the French capital outfit have great potential to attract big names, underlining the club’s financial power and excellent coaching staff.
“I have received hundreds of phone calls from agents offering me players ever since I signed with PSG. They have offered me some incredible names. Players who have just signed spectacular contracts elsewhere,” Ancelotti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Ancelotti also had a word on his time at Chelsea, and said that Didier Drogba should have been sold following the arrival of Torres.
“They all want to come here. There’s the city of Paris, there’s money and there’s a coach with a good reputation,” said Ancelotti.
“Do you want the names? Okay, now I tell you the players the agents are offering on the market, officially or not: [Carlos] Tevez, [Fernando] Torres, [Dimitar] Berbatov, [Roman] Pavlyuchenko, [Edison] Cavani, [Fernando] Llorente.”
Ancelotti shared his thoughts on Torres’ unsuccessful adjustment to life at Stamford Bridge, and hinted that Drogba could be the reason why the Spaniard has failed to shine so far. Goal.com
“If you decide to invest on Torres, you have to sell Drogba. He’s like [Filippo] Inzaghi, he tends to devour whoever competes with him. He’s not bad, but this is his personality.”
