European high fliers line up bids for £30 million Chelsea star !

Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko could be set for a January exit according to reports in the News of the World today. It is expected though that Chelsea will make a loss of about £18 million since they signed him 18 months ago.

Shevchenko has been one of the Premier Leagues greatest ever flops, the Ukrainian who was previously a goal machine at AC Milan has struggled to find the form that saw him and his club receive numerous pieces of silverwarein both Italy and Europe.

Chelsea signed the striker at the "prime" age of thirty and due to his age and his severe lack of form it is thought that the Ukraine international could depart for as little as £12 million this January.

Inter and AC Milan are the favourites to sign Shevchenko but the likes of Sevilla or Atletico Madrid may also approach Chelsea.
