Chelsea might start to lose interest in Nic Anelka soon, as Bolton valiantly stand by their £15 million transfer demands, reports the Guardian. Quite how Chelsea, owned by a Russian Billionaire who probably uses 50 pound notes instead of loo roll, cannot afford 15 million quid is beyond us but as tension over the transfer stalemate grows, the striker’s agent, Doug Pingisi said:
“He really wants to go to Chelsea, Nicolas is staying calm. He hopes everything will be finalised this week because he has been waiting for an opportunity like this for years.
“He appreciates the fact that he is at the top of the list of players wanted by Chelsea. For Nico, it is very important he finds a club that will allow him to express himself at the highest level. Chelsea are a club that are still involved in every competition, particularly the Champions League.”
So how long will Chelsea wait for Anelka, and why cant they afford Bolton’s valuation?
