The new Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is looking to unload some of the strikers that are surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and Anelka looks to be one of those players. The new Portugese manager wants to bring in Porto’s Colombian striker Radamel Falcao and Anderlecht’s Romelu Lukaku, which means no more room for the likes of Anelka.
According to the Metro the 32-year-old Frenchman is likely to head to Paris St. Germain where he has played twice before in his career. A Qatari investment fund has taken over the Ligue 1 side and has promised huge amounts of money to fund transfers.
Anelka looks to be the first big name to leave Stamford Bridge but there will surely be more to follow. Didier Drogba may be sold to Marseille as Villas-Boas looks to reshape the squad in his image. He has already admitted that he will employ a 4-3-3 formation which will leave Anelka out in the cold.
Besides Falcao Chelsea are considering whether to increase their bid for Tottenham’s Luka Modric and are also thought to be planning offers for Porto’s Joao Moutinho and Bolton’s Gary Cahill.
