Chelsea Star Would Move To Play Regular Football

Stamford Bridge star will quit club for Russia.

Chelsea defender Yuri Zhirkov has had no contact with Dinamo Moscow over a move this summer but admits he would leave if an offer came in.

The 27-year-old joined the Blues two-years ago for £18million from CSKA Moscow but has failed to establish himself ahead of Ashley Cole in the starting XI.

The Russia international has been linked with a move back to Russia with Dinamo and Zenit St Petersburg rumoured to be interested.

But Zhirkov, who would love to become a Chelsea regular, admits he will have to leave to play more football.

“I haven’t talked to anyone from Dinamo,” Zhirkov told Sovetsky Sport.

“On the one hand, I am a player of Chelsea, a club with rich traditions, and I will make everything possible to establish myself there.

“On the other hand, during my two years in London I could not boast regular performances and if there were good offers from Russia, why not consider them?

“However, it would be a difficult choice to make.

“Now there is nothing concrete and there’s, actually, nothing to talk about. My situation is not so severe.

“Though, I wouldn’t lie, Chelsea is the primary option for me, while Russia is the secondary one.”
