Anelka Return Would Thrill PSG

Nicolas Anelka has already had two spells with Paris Saint Germain - but chairman Charles Villeneuve would love to see the striker back at the French capital club.
Anelka began his career with PSG at the Parc des Princes, but was signed by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger at the age of 17.
He made his name at Highbury but quit the club to join Real Madrid, before returning to Paris in 2000 for a second spell with PSG.
Then he moved to Liverpool on loan, Manchester City, Fenerbahce and Bolton Wanderers before signing for Chelsea last January.
But Villeneuve reckons Anelka is what PSG need at the moment.
"Yes I would like to see Nicolas Anelka back at PSG," he told L'Equipe. “I will tell you openly he is the type of forward we need."
The chairman is trying to bring in a new striker for his coach, Paul Le Guen, after failing to sign Jimmy Briand from Rennes. He is currently trying to conclude a deal with Fenerbahce for ex-Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman.
"We found an agreement with Kezman's club. There is a slight problem remaining between him and Fenerbahce about a signing fee," Villeneuve confirmed.
"We have other solutions, but we didn't start any contact so far. We hope to sign Kezman even if it doesn't depend on us anymore.
"I tried to sign a forward with the profile set by Paul Le Guen. He wanted Jimmy Briand? That's simple, I can't buy Briand. Rennes' major shareholder doesn't want to change his position: €10 million. I won't give €10 million for Briand, it is not the market's price. We offered €9 million. So the second choice was Kezman."
