    Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua says it expects Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka to make a decision by Monday over whether to join the Super League outfit.

    Club media officer Ma Yue told The Associated Press on Friday that he cannot confirm a report on the website of French sports newspaper L’Equipe that Anelka has already agreed to sign for two seasons. L’Equipe reported that the club is offering the 32-year-old former France international €10.6 million ($14.1 million) per season.

    Ma said “talks are progressing quite smoothly” with Anelka’s camp, but added that the two sides “still have to confirm a few details in the contract.”

    Anelka recently had a transfer request accepted by Chelsea.
