Nicolas Anelka May Make Chelsea Exit U-Turn But PSG Will Wait

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka admits he still could have a future in West London despite interest from Paris St Germain.

The 32-year-old is in the final year of his contract and he looked certain to leave the club when former boss Carlo Ancelotti was sacked at the end of last season.

Current boss Andre Villas-Boas last week claimed the Frenchman had indicated he wished to leave the club when his contract expires next summer.

But Anelka will not make any rash decisions and will see what options he has when the transfer window re-opens.

“I am linked everywhere but, when you are linked, it doesn’t mean you want to leave,” he told the Chelsea website.

“I like Chelsea and first of all wanted to stay – that’s why I am still here.

“I will see what happens in December and, if I am still here, I will see what happens in June.

“I am happy here, I like the club, everyone here, and, after, I will see what happens. It is not only down to me.

“I have been here almost four years now, and I am pleased with the way it has been. It could have been even better but I am still happy.”

Villas-Boas has been at pains to play down concerns about the age of his players but Anelka admits he felt old when he discovered new team-mate Romelu Lukaku had a poster of him on his bedroom wall.

“I feel very old,” Anelka added. “Two or three weeks ago, I went to Paris and saw two kids.

“I was with my friend and we were talking, and they didn’t know I used to play for Arsenal!

“They never knew or saw videos, so I was upset, and said I must be very, very old now!”
