The ex-Chelsea star could end his career with Monaco

Andriy Shevchenko could end his career with Monaco after his wife told him to join the French side, Mirror.co.uk reported.

The ex-Chelsea star, 32, is looking for a club after being released by the Blues at the end of last season.

Shevchenko - who spent last season on loan at former club AC Milan - had been expected to join Serie A outfit Roma.

But his model wife, Kristen, fancies life on the Cote d`Azur and is urging him to join Monaco, who finished 11th in the French top flight last season.

Marseille and Lyon have also expressed an interest in the striker whose goal-scoring once made him European Footballer of the Year.
