Anelka linked to China move

Published Add your comment

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka could be poised to join Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January, Press Association Sport understands.

Reports in France claim the Super League side are willing to pay the former Paris St Germain, Arsenal and Real Madrid star 10.6 million euros (£9.17m) a year.

Anelka, who is available again for France selection after serving an 18-game ban for his part in the row which derailed Les Bleus' World Cup campaign in South Africa in 2010, is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer.
