Essien hint that Chelsea stay may be over

Michael Essien's agent has stunned new Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti by claiming the midfielder could leave the club this summer. His agent Fabien Piveteau is adamant the 26-year-old is happy at Stamford Bridge but says a move to the continent could tempt him away.

"Some clubs are interested in Michael," said Piveteau. "He likes Chelsea very much, but football is football and if Real Madrid, Barcelona or some other club make an offer he needs to sit down and discuss what is best for him."
