Barcelona rival Chelsea for Zhirkov

Barcelona sports chief Txiki Begiristain is chasing CSKA Moscow wing-back Yuri Zhirkov. Begiristain has big concerns over the left-side of Barca's midfield, with Sylvinho and Eric Abidal failing to convince.

Zhirkov has jumped to the top of Barca's shopping list, says El Mundo Deportivo, ahead of Bayern Munich fullback Philipp Lahm.

Chelsea and Juventus are also keen on Zhirkov.
