CSKA Moscow ace Zhirkov will struggle to reject Chelsea offer

CSKA Moscow winger Yuri Zhirkov admits he'd struggle to turn down an offer from Chelsea.

Bayern Munich and Chelsea are battling for the Russia international, though the Bundesliga club privately accept they have little chance of winning Zhirkov's signature should the Blues make a serious push.

"No self-respecting footballer would say 'no' to a major European club," confessed Zhirkov. "In any case, there's been no official talks as yet."
