Owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly ready to pay �17m for the playmaker.

Pirlo is the one player new boss Carlo Ancelotti told the Russian tycoon he wants with him at Stamford Bridge.

But the Blues irritated Milan by offering just �6.5m plus striker Claudio Pizarro. And Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi yesterday said Pirlo, 30, was no longer for sale.
