Chelsea London, May 16 (ANI): Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will be awarding coach Carlo Ancelotti for winning Double title by backing his move to have Kaka at the club.

Ancelotti is a huge admirer of Kaka, who last year turned down a move to Manchester City.

Instead, Kaka headed to Real Madrid in a 56 million pounds switch from AC Milan but his first season in La Liga has been a troubled one, News of the World reports.

Kaka has been dogged by injury and has had to angrily deny rumours that he was more concerned about being fit for the World Cup than for Real Madrid’s domestic campaign.

Ancelotti is encouraged by rumours in his pursuit for Kaka.

The pair had a very successful, six-year relationship and won the Champions League together in 2007.

Abramovich has sanctioned to tighten the purse at Chelsea and that might be reflected in upcoming contract negotiations with the likes of Joe Cole and Nicolas Anelka.

And the Russian owner is hopeful that talent from the academy will push through in the next couple of seasons.

But after the outstanding domestic season, he still wants Chelsea to win the Champions League and knows he needs to back Ancelotti and give him the financial tools to compete with the superpowers in the transfer market, News of the World reports. (ANI)
