He has arrived on loan from Shanghai Shenhua with a five-month contract worth â‚¬600,000 plus various performance-related bonuses.
â€śAnelka? In July we made some targeted investments, but now we are in an emergency situation in attack, so we moved to fix those issues, even if it is not official yet,â€ť Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.
â€śIt can be a good move for the short-term, then at the end of the season weâ€™ll evaluate what must be done. He is filling a hole. It is a five-month contract with an option for the second season, if things go well.
â€śAnelkaâ€™s arrival rules out any other transfers, because in this stage of the transfer window there are no other opportunities.
â€śHe will put himself at the disposal of the squad and itâ€™ll be up to Antonio Conte to decide how to use him. After all, he is not in great physical condition considering he hasnâ€™t played for a month.â€ť
