Although last season could easily be classified as a disappointing one for Michael Essien, the Ghanaian midfielder is still a player in demand.

Today the tabloid press is insinuating that Roman Abramovich is set to reject any overtures from Real Madrid for the midfielder.

It`s rumoured that Jose Mourinho is looking to pay something in the region of £18 million to add some power to his midfield.

Mourinho, who signed the player back in 2005 for a sum of £24.4 million is set to receive a rebuff though with a source close to Abramovich re-iterating that:

“Abramovich is not going to sell.”

Clearly Essien is to remain an integral part of the first team!
