Chelsea manager Carlo Anceltti has finally spoken out about the possibility of Liverpool star Fernando Torres moving to Stamford Bridge.
Ancelotti told The Sun: "The day Drogba cannot play and maintain this level of condition, we can think about buying another striker like Torres. But when Drogba is not able, Torres will be old,"
This statement comes just days after Torres' pivotal role in Liverpool's home win agains current Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Despite the exceptional show that Torres put on at Merseyside, Ancelotti is adamant that with his current strike force of Nicholas Anelka and Didier Drogba the west London club currently do not need another striker.
Drogba, who is 32-years-old, is six years older than the World Cup winning Spanish striker. This does not seem to worry the Chelsea boss, as he believes Drogba can maintain his exceptional level of performance into his late thirties.
Ancelotti emphasised his lack of interest in taking Torres away from Merseyside claiming: "When you have Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, it's difficult to think about Torres."
During the interview with The Sun the Chelsea boss also praised the ability of Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez, who is believed to be disappointed with life at Eastlands, saying:
"It isn't just Torres who has created problems for us. Carlos Tevez is the same," the Italian said. "They are fantastic strikers and sometimes it can happen, you concede goals to these strikers."
