France coach Blanc pleased with Chelsea interest

France coach Laurent Blanc can't rule out a move to Chelsea.

The former Inter Milan, Napoli and Manchester United player has been mentioned as a possible target for both Inter Milan and Chelsea, following Andre Villas Boas's dismissal earlier this year.

"It's always satisfying to be appreciated by the big clubs," the 46-year-old told Le Parisien. "But, for now, my objective is Euro 2012. I am totally absorbed by this competition. I don't know what I will be doing next season."

Blanc, one-time manager of Bordeaux, is only contracted with the French national side until the summer, and talks regarding a renewal have yet to take place.

"I'm not the kind of guy who goes knocking on doors," he added, which sounds like a 'come and ask nicely' plea, if Roman Abramovich is listening.
