Carlo Ancelotti: Looking to strengthen his squad with a defender, a midfielder and a striker
Paris St Germain manager Carlo Ancelotti intends to recruit three new players this summer as he plots a title bid next season.
Ancelotti's second-placed side just missed out on a first title since 1994 to Montpellier on Sunday.
While the Italian plans to strengthen his squad in the summer, he rejected the notion that the Qatari-backed club would embark on a "galactic" spending spree.
He said on Monday: "It won't be a revolution next year, because we have the backbone.
"Three players - it will be good to improve the team, in all sectors, that's to say a defender, a midfielder and a striker."
