'No offers' for Zhirkov

01 April 2009 03:23
Yuri Zhirkov has insisted that CSKA Moscow have yet to receive a formal approach regarding his availability. Chelsea have been linked with a move for the highly-rated Russian, although the Premier League giants have yet to confirm or deny the rumours. Bayern Munich are confirmed admirers of the 25-year-old, but general manager Uli Hoeness admitted on Tuesday that the Bundesliga side could miss out on his signature should Chelsea make their reported interest official. "There are a lot of conversations about this subject but CSKA have not received any formal proposals," the left-back told Sport Express. "The president of our club always talks to me about it. To represent a top European club, I think no self-respecting footballer would refuse. "Talk about this topic [which club he could join] is a guess. When an offer arrives it can be discussed. "Further statements are for CSKA. In autumn the team starts in the UEFA Champions League and will break the barrier of the group stags, I think all the preconditions for this exist."
