Milan striker Andrei Shevchenko has again dismissed reports linking him with a move to Chelsea.

The Ukrainian striker admits the constant speculation about a switch to the Stamford Bridge club has been frustrating.

“My dream is to stay at Milan,” said Shevchenko.

“Every year you hear the same things about (Roman) Abramovich and Chelsea but my desire is to stay at Milan.”

Shevchenko has also denied suggestions of a rift with Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The forward was visibly angry when substituted against Livorno last weekend, although he denies that his ire was directed at Ancelotti.

“I did not need to apologise to Ancelotti because I was angry with myself. The only people I need to apologise to are our supporters because I did not play very well,” added Shevchenko.
