Carlo Ancelotti not interested in Fernando Torres


Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has no interest in signing Liverpool striker Fernando Torres when the transfer window reopens in January.

Speaking ahead of his side's Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow at Stamford Bridge, former AC Milan boss Ancelotti insisted he was happy with his table-topping squad.

He confirmed:"I've always said that Torres is not our aim for the future because we have trust in a lot of young players.

"We have fantastic strikers in Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and Salomon Kalou. We also have fantastic young players like Daniel Sturridge and Gael Kakuta.

"So, at this moment, we don't really need to have a striker, a fantastic striker, like Fernando Torres.

"We can be competitive in all competitions with this squad. The most important thing is to avoid injury, when possible.

"We have to maintain the squad with all the players fit. This is the most difficult thing to do, but we're trying and working hard to do this, to control the recovery of the players.

"I want to be sure that the players who will be involved in the game against Spartak will be fresh. If everyone stays fit we won't need anyone else. I think we have a fantastic squad."
