It is being reported today that the new Chelsea chief exec Ron Gourlay is preparing to offer Nicolas Anelka a £40,000 a week pay rise and a new contract which means he will finish his career at Stamford Bridge. This is equal to a 50% raise and will make him one of the top earners on £120,000 a week.
Anelka still has 18 months left on his conract, but has made no secret of the fact he wants to stay. He said yesterday: “I hope to sign a new contract soon. I am very happy at Chelsea. I have found a home.
“Ever since I left Real Madrid, I wanted to find a big club again and I have with Chelsea.
“It is a big club with big players.
“I feel I am playing the best football of my career and want to carry on playing my best days with Chelsea.”
It seems that he is going to get his wish.
