Blues ace laughs off quit talk


Ghanaian star Michael Essien is playing down talk of a move to Inter Milan this summer and insisted he remains committed to Chelsea.

Speculation is rife in Italy and Ghana about a possible move to Inter ahead of next season after a disappointing campaign at Stamford Bridge, but Essien is adamant the stories are wide of the mark.

The midfielder claims his only focuses is on performing well and winning trophies again for the Blues irrespective of who he is appointed as the new manager in the wake of Carlo Ancelotti’s sacking.

He told “I am looking forward to next season, I want to win back the title and bring the Champions League to Chelsea.

“So I am not aware of not playing for Chelsea next season.”
