Nicolas Anelka: Shanghai Shenhua striker is training with Paris St Germain

Anelka, who started his career at PSG, is training with Ancelotti's side as he continues talks to cancel his contract with Shanghai Shenhua.

The 33-year-old only joined the Chinese side from Chelsea 12 months ago and there have been reports that Anelka could retire.

Ancelotti worked with the forward during his time as Chelsea manager, but does not believe Anelka is considering a playing return to PSG.

"Nicolas was my player and he is my friend nowadays," said Ancelotti.

"He is also a former player of the club, where he was educated.

"But we didn't think about hiring him as he didn't ask us to sign him. If he were to ask? We would think about it but I don't believe he is thinking about that."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
