Chelsea have issued a statement after Hernan Crespo told an Italian newspaper he wanted to return to Serie A.
Crespo is waiting for a call from an Italian club
Crespo was quoted as telling Tuttosport that his "one wish" was to go back to Italy, where he has played for Parma, Lazio, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
Chelsea then said: "He is contracted for the next two years and will remain so unless we receive a suitable offer.
"Everyone at Chelsea is aware of his domestic situation and we have every sympathy for that."
Crespo owns a house in Italy and says returning there is more important than money - adding that he has turned down incentives presented by billionaire Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.
"He offered me a house, a private jet and more money, but money and success doesn't come into it," Crespo said.
"Italy is my natural environment, it's where I'll live when I retire and it's the best place to play."
Crespo, who joined Chelsea from Inter Milan for £16.8m in August 2003, was loaned to AC Milan for one season before returning to Stamford Bridge.
He said: "Abramovich is a marvellous person and Chelsea is a fantastic club, they have treated me like a king.
"The fans have been great too, but I am waiting here, just hoping my mobile will ring.
"I can guarantee that I am a healthy striker with just one wish - to return and play my sort of football."
