Chelsea star keen on new contract

The Blues are reportedly ready to offer the 30-year-old a new £120,000-a-week deal.

He told News of the World: “I hope to sign a new contract soon. I am very happy at Chelsea. I have found a home.
Big club

“Ever since I left Real Madrid I wanted to find a big club again and I have with Chelsea.

“I feel I am playing the best football of my career and want to carry on playing my best days with Chelsea.”

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is quoted in the News of the World as saying: “I am very happy for him, he is a big surprise. I knew him before I came here, I knew his qualities. But now it is different.

“I always thought he was an individual player but instead he plays very well for the team.”
