Ancelotti Rules Out Richarlison Sale
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti says the club will not countenance the sale of Brazilian forward Richarlison in the summer.
The player was linked with a move to Barcelona late in the window which never materialised, but Ancelotti says the club will not sell in the summer either.
“I don’t think it will be difficult to resist because it is enough to say no,” Ancelotti said in his Friday press conference.
“There is no possibility because Richarlison is an important part of the future of Everton like the other young players we have – Pickford, Holgate, Kean, Keane, Calvert-Lewin.
“We have a lot of young players. This is the base from which the club has to build the future and Richarlison is part of it. Everything can happen in football.
“If an offer arrives that you cannot refuse, and it is an offer that can improve the squad, then why not? But, now, I can say Richarlison is an important part.”
