Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has rejected reports linking the club with a move for Chelsea's Didier Drogba.

Widespread reports on Saturday claimed Drogba could be on his way to the Rossoneri after agreeing a three-year deal at the San Siro.

Drogba's long-term future at Chelsea has been the subject of conjecture for some time with the Ivory Coast international thought to be unsettled in West London.

A number of top European clubs have been linked with the former Marseille hit-man, but Ancelotti insists the rumours linking Drogba with Milan are wide of the mark.

Denial

"Does Didier Drogba have a deal with Milan? It's all rubbish," insisted Ancelotti.

Ancelotti also revealed Milan are unlikely to sign Palermo ace Amauri even though he is big admirer of the striker.

Juventus are thought to be close to signing Amauri and Ancelotti says the Brazilian-born ace will not be making the move to Milan.

Ancelotti added: "I respect Amauri and have said so many times, but it will be difficult to see him arrive at Milan?

Barcelona star Ronaldino has been strongly mooted as a Milan arrival in the summer, but Ancelotti says any deal will be difficult for the Brazilian.

"Ronaldinho? I have no news on that front. As with Amauri, he is well-respected, but it'll be difficult to sign him."
