Andrei Shevchenko, for so long as useful to Chelsea as a master Swiss chocolatier in a teapot factory, could finally be on the move.
The Guardian reports that:
Sampdoria general manager Beppe Marotta has revealed his club are plotting an audacious swoop for Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.
Shevchenko has spent two difficult seasons in the Premier League after making the move from AC Milan to London for £30million in 2006, and has been linked with a return to his former employers at the San Siro.
Marotta feels his club can succeed where Milan have failed by luring Shevchenko back to Italy on a loan deal, although he concedes the Ukrainian’s wage demands could prove to be a stumbling block. (Guardian)
Surely Big Phil will bite Samp’s hands off with an offer to take Shevchenko on? The Ukrainian is 31-years-old, and his contribution to the Chelsea cause has generally been equal to that of a slug on ketamine, is anyone going to miss him?
