Paris Saint Germain deny interest in Chelsea captain John Terry
Wednesday 04 July 2012
Paris Saint Germain manager Carlo Ancelotti has denied reports that he is planning to sign Chelsea captain John Terry.
The centre-back skippered the club during the Italian’s time there between 2009 and 2011, and the two men were believed to have had a good relationship.
There has been speculation in the last few days that cash-splashing PSG had made Terry a target.
However, Ancelotti says that although he is looking for a new central defender, the Chelsea captain, who lifted the Champions League last season, is not in his plans.
"We are looking for a central defender. The club is in contact with some players, but not John Terry," the Italian said.
"Last year, we ranked second. This year, we clearly want to be champions. There's also the Champions League, which will be as important as Ligue 1. But I think it will be easier to win the league."
