Chelsea want a fee for Nicolas Anelka in January.

The Daily Mail says Anelka, 32, has been offered a stunning £9.16m-a-year deal to go to China with Shanghai Shenhua. He is out of contract in the summer but Chelsea may be willing to sell in January for £1m.

Chinese Super League club Shenhua confirmed: "We asked about Anelka. We also know he could leave on a Bosman next summer but many clubs are interested - AC Milan, Russian clubs and some Gulf clubs.

"If we want to sign him it would cost plenty."
