With his Chinese adventure all but over, Nicolas Anelka is on the lookout for a new club where he can undermine the manager play some football get paid. In the meantime, he needs to stay fit, so he’s spent some time at PSG’s training ground on the invitation of manager Carlo Ancelotti. But this isn’t a soon-to-be-consummated relationship. Carlo only likes Nico as a friend these days.

“We did not think about (signing him). I do not think there’s an opportunity,” Ancelotti told a news conference ahead of Friday’s Ligue 1 home game against Ajaccio.

“He only asked to train. He played under me and we are friends now. I allowed him to train because of our friendship.”

The important question is, does Nico like Carlo as more than a friend? Does he want to get back together with Carlo, recapture the old magic of London? He should totally pass Carlo a note with a box for “Yes” and a box for “No” that Carlo could check. That way he’d know for sure.

Anelka has been linked to a few Premier League teams (probably by his agent and no one else) during his feud with Shenhua Shanghai. Both he and former Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba have had issues with payment due to a struggle for control among board members at the Chinese Super League club.
