Anelka Rumors…By: Eric Giacometti | February 3rd, 2011
Reports from France have surfaced reporting that Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka may be in talks with NYRB for a potential move away from the London powerhouse. Before we all start getting too excited, let’s remember what this is: a rumor. It hasn’t been the first one, most likely won’t be the last, so we shouldn’t get too swept up in this one just yet (remember when Raul was destined for the Big Apple?). European rumors seem to be a dime a dozen these days, and they almost always involve NYRB. In theory, this move could make sense considering Anelka seems to be the odd man out at Chelsea with new addition of Fernando Torres. And as much as I am salivating at the prospect of a front line featuring Anelka and his former French teammate Thierry Henry, let’s try not to let this go to our heads. Until I got more concrete information besides one report from one French newspaper, I’ll make sure I don’t get too hyped by this rumor. Stay tuned, this one is sure to take us for a ride.
