Shanghai's Anelka plays down imminent move for Chelsea's Drogba

Shanghai Shenhua striker Nicolas Anelka has hinted that Didier Drogba is likely to remain with Chelsea this summer.

The Ivory Coast international has been heavily linked with a move to join his former Blues strike partner in the Chinese Super League but Anelka has played down an impending transfer.

"Even if Drogba finally chooses to stay with Chelsea, that can only prove Drogba himself wanted to stay and Chelsea also wanted to keep him," Anelka told the Chinese media.

"If Drogba cannot come to Shanghai, then there are no regrets because the world still has many other fine players."
