Changing of the guard at Chelsea

[ENGLAND] With Chelsea's 2-1 win over Everton in Saturday's FA Cup final, Dutchman Guus Hiddink's stint as interim manager is over. Italian Carlo Ancelotti is headed over from AC Milan to manage the Blues. The big question will be, what reinforcements will he bring with him?

It's unlikely Ancelotti will be able to bring with him Brazilian Kaka from Milan, but captain John Terry is urging Chelsea to sign Frenchman Frank Ribery from Bayern Munich and David Villa from Valencia -- acquisitions that would surely top $100 million.

"There's talk of Ribery and Villa and when big players like that come up, we need to show people that Chelsea are back," Terry told the Daily Mail. "We want to show we're going to compete for the best players out there. We want the likes of Ribery and Villa and if we can get them we can push for the Premier League again. At the same time, we need to keep hold of lads like Didier Drogba, Ashley Cole and Joe Cole, who are up for contract talks."

Even the pockets of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich aren't probably deep enough to achieve all of Terry's wishes.
