A quick word from Nicolas Anelka‘s brother/agent Claude this morning, in which we discover that the sullen Chelsea striker already has one eye on a lucrative move into semi-retirement in the MLS when his contract at the Bridge expires in the summer of 2012.
So said (Claude) Anelka:
“Nicolas told me he is interested in playing in the United States. We could see him crossing the Atlantic, and I’m serious when I say this. He asked himself what he will do once his current contract runs out.
“The US is quite something, and a dream destination. He says he will give it a try, even though he would earn less money than in somewhere like Qatar.”
How very earnest of him.
