Blues and United linked with Annan

Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan insists he is not fazed by speculation linking him with Chelsea, Manchester United and French giants Lyon.

The 23-year-old Rosenborg midfielder has impressed many with his energetic performances for the Black Stars during this summer's World Cup, alerting a number of big clubs to his situation.

Annan has been dubbed 'the next Claude Makelele' by many, as his ability in defensive midfield is akin to the former France international.

Annan admits he is flattered to be linked to the trio of clubs, but would not go into much detail regarding his future destination.


He said: "I am fine at the moment. I've heard a lot about me going every summer but nothing is fazing me.

"It is good to hear about Man United, Chelsea and Lyon, but nothing is official.

"It is flattering, Lyon is a big team in Europe. But I have a contract with Rosenborg until December 2011 so let's wait and see."
