Anelka to complete China move


Anelka to complete China move

Nicolas Anelka has reportedly agreed a two year contract with Shanghai Shenhua, worth a massive 200,000 GBP per week. The Chelsea striker handed in a transfer request last week, and will now move to the Chinese club for around 6m GBP.

Anelka had become frustrated with life on the bench at Stamford Bridge and handed in a transfer request last week, which Andre Villas-Boas accepted.


The Frenchman hinted that a move would be agreed in the next week or so, and it appears that the striker will make a move to China, a transfer that will undoubtedly be the highest profile move involving a player joining a Chinese club.


The 32 year old rejected offers from a range of clubs including AC Milan, two unnamed American clubs and Lyon.
