Chelsea striker Anelka eyeing lucrative UAE move

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka is eyeing a lucrative move to the UAE.

The Frenchman will join the gold rush to the United Arab Emirates when his contract expires in eight months.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas last night admitted that 32-year-old Anelka has resisted offers of a new deal.

Villas-Boas said: "He has a decision to make but I don't think he is willing to continue here. Nico has indicated to me he might go. We will make efforts to renew his contract but I think that might not be his intention."
