Chelsea eyeing new “Italian Job”

Ever-since Macedonian ace Goran Pandev expressed his will to leave Lazio last summer he was “put in the freezer”, having not featured in a single Lazio game in months. The decision that was made by chairman Claudio Lotito prompted the player to request an immediate exit now rather than next summer, as he felt enough is enough.
“I’ve had enough of this nightmare. I can’t wait to leave” the 26 y.o. striker told Mediaset.
“Lotito disappointed me: he treated me as a nobody and told me one too many lies.
“I have been training on my own for four months and now I am just hoping that all this comes to an end.
“I just want to get back to being a football player.”
Pandev’s appeal is due a final review by the “Collegio Arbitrate” (Settlement Committee) and if successful, both Inter and AC Milan are ready to sign him immediately, but it could be Chelsea that beats both Milanese giants to his signature as the Londoners are working high and low to cover all angles in advance.
Chelsea are anticipating a CAS decision that will most probably confirm a 2-year transfer ban imposed on them earlier by UEFA, but temporarily suspended by CAS until the final ruling, and January could just be their last transfer window for the next 2 years.
Also Drogba and Kalou (along with Essien and “possibly” Obi-Mikel) will certainly leave a big void in the already stuttering squad, and Ancelotti wants to make sure he has some back-up to rely on during the African Cup of Nations that kicks off on January 10th.

    if chelsea need a striker, he should be a great player who suits the club’s quality. and pandev is not a great player like drogba and anelka.
    drogba and anelka are in their 30s. so now it is right time for chelsea for to find and recruit strikers for the future. and such players should be really great. abramovich is a wise man who does know how to spend his money fruitfully.
