Man City will better Chelsea offer for Anelka

Manchester City are ready to outbid Chelsea for Bolton Wanderers striker Nicolas Anelka.

The Sun says City have told Reebok chiefs they will trump Chelsea's £10million offer by an extra £2m to get the Frenchman.

Blues remain favourites because Anelka wants to join a Champions League side.

Sven Goran Eriksson is due to unveil Nery Castillo today after snapping up the Mexican hotshot on a year-long loan from Shakhtar Donetsk. And he believes Anelka can be tempted back to the club where he hit 38 goals in 89 games.
