Carvalho has ended his six-year association with Chelsea to secure a reunion with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

The centre-half's departure has led to rumours that Ancelotti will look to replace the Portugal international with Benfica defender Luiz.

However, Ancelotti says he is not in the market for Luiz and will turn to youngster Jeffrey Bruma to provide the cover in defence.


"Everyone was disappointed about Carvalho leaving because he had six very good years with this club and did a fantastic job last year," said Ancelotti.

"But his desire was to leave this club, to try a new emotion and new experience.

"And we have in our academy a fantastic centre-back (Bruma) and we want to give him more possibility to play.

"I didn't try to persuade Riccy to stay because that was a decision that he took at the end of the last year.

"The last game of the last year, he said to me that he would like to leave this club and for this reason, he went to Real Madrid.

"Am I after David Luiz? No. We have Terry, Ivanovic, Alex and Bruma, so we are OK. And I won't go into the market for a central defender."
