Hernan Crespo has revealed he is set for a crunch meeting with Chelsea.Hernan Crespo has revealed he will head for a crunch meeting with the Chelsea hierarchy in order to clarify his future.
The Argentine striker has had a fine season on loan at Milan and says he would love to make his move to the San Siro permanent.
The two clubs have been in dialogue for some time and talk in the last seven days has suggested that the striker may have to return to Stamford Bridge.
Crespo admits he is in the dark over his future, as reports are saying he could still remain with the Rossoneri if Kakha Kaladze heads in the opposite direction.
"It's a bit tiring to talk about the future when I don't know what the future holds," Crespo told the club's website. "I am a Milan player until June 30 and I hope to be after that as well.
"Is my move part of Kaladze's one? I don't know. Everyone will have their opinion on this, but I am meeting Chelsea to understand and find out what will happen.
"I will speak personally with Chelsea; I am a little worried as this is the last card I can play to stay at Milan.
"I am confident but not relaxed, I hope I can find the person who understands."
Milan are believed to be close to signing Alberto Gilardino from Parma, a transfer which could lessen their need to keep Crespo, but the Argentine feels there is room for both strikers at the club.
"As for Gilardino, I thank him with all my heart for saving Parma, he's a great player, there's room for everyone at Milan," added Crespo.
