Pirlo coy on Blues link

10 June 2009 09:36
Andrea Pirlo has refused to rule out the possibility of joining Chelsea this summer. With former AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti having recently taken the reins at Stamford Bridge, a host of the Rossoneri's top stars have been linked with a switch to west London. Brazilian superstar Kaka was touted as a potential target, but has completed a big-money move to Real Madrid, while his compatriot Alexandre Pato is also believed to be a possible target for the Blues. World Cup-winner Pirlo is the latest to find himself at the centre of much transfer talk, and has done little to stem the tide of speculation. "Me at Chelsea? Let's see," the midfielder said from Italy's training camp in South Africa ahead of the Confederations Cup. "Maybe not now, but we will see." Pirlo has admitted that the sale of Kaka has disrupted the Milan camp and he believes the club could pay the price for putting financial reward ahead of the best interests of the team. "We took it badly," he added. "Kaka is a really great player and a really great man. To cover his absence will take time. "They (the Milan board) wanted to bring in the money. Ricardo (Kaka) was right to say this hasn't been his decision."
