Ancelotti turned down by Maldini

Ancelotti wanted Maldini to follow him to the Premier League, after the AC Milan star retired at the end of last season.

“I made that proposal to him,” said Ancelotti in an interview with Radio Deejay.

“But he wanted to take time off and after so many years playing, it’s understandable.

“But if I could have taken anyone to Chelsea, it would have been Maldini.”
