Chelsea have been dealt a double edged sword to their forward line, with Didier Drogba wanting to stay and Nicolas Anelka wanting to leave, according to the Daily Mirror.

Drogba has reportedly agreed to undergo contract extension talks, despite the fact that his place in the starting line up has been threatened by Fernando Torres.


Drogba didn’t get onto the pitch for Chelsea until the 75th minute on Sunday, coming on for Salomon Kalou. But the striker appears intent on staying at Stamford Bridge, and pledged his future to the side yesterday.

But Anelka reportedly doesn’t feel the same way about staying at Chelsea, and the striker, who moved to the club from Bolton for £15 million in 2008, is said to be unhappy with the maximum competition for a place in the starting line up.

Anelka’s contract with Chelsea ends this time next year, and while the Frenchman has said in the past he will see out his deal at Stamford Bridge, he is now reportedly open to the right offer from the right club.
