Ancelotti fears he's handed Anelka massive Chelsea contract angle

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti wants to secure Nicolas Anelka to a new contract.

But the Italian joked all the praise he has been giving the Frenchman in recent weeks may have placed him in an excellent bargaining position!

He laughed: "We want him to stay here a lot of years but not too many because he is already 30.

"If I heard all this talk about me, I would be asking for a contract of nine or 10 years! That isn't possible."
