Chelsea target Zhirkov keen on Barcelona move

Zhirkov has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent weeks.

“I would prefer to join Barcelona, but that does not automatically mean I would turn down Chelsea,” he explained in Sport Express.

“I should stress again that there is a difference between playing for a club and sitting on the bench. If I had to sit on the bench, I wouldn’t even want to join Barcelona.

“I am still yet to receive any specific offers.”
