Belletti expecting Blues departure
The 33-year-old Brazilian’s deal at Stamford Bridge expires this
summer and he is not expected to be offered new terms. The former
Barcelona and Villarreal man has not played for Carlo Ancelotti’s
side since being sent off against Manchester City in February.
Despite being at the back end of his career Belletti insists he has
no plans to retire in the summer and is keen to achieve his
objective of making 1,000 professional appearances. “Perhaps the
Cup final against Portsmouth on May 15 will be my last game for
Chelsea,” explained Belletti. “My contract runs out in June and I
have not yet decided where I will go. “But I am not yet thinking
about retiring. “I want to try and reach 1,000 games in my career.
So far I have about 950.”
