TRANSFER NEWS: Argentine Legend Rubbishes Chelsea Transfer Link

By on September 23, 2011

Diego Maradona has refuted claims that Al Wasl are closing in on Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to the UAE club but the Argentinean manager has dismissed the rumours.

“I am really surprised to hear this. We don’t have anything to do with Anelka,”

“Of course, I wish that he would come and play for us at Al Wasl, but knowing the wages he gets at Chelsea, I don’t think it is ever going to be possible.

“I also believe he is a pillar of the Chelsea team and I don’t think they will allow him to leave.”

The former Real Madrid frontman is out of contract next summer with Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas conceding the striker is likely to leave.
