Dynamo Kiev want to bring Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko back to the club, Tribal Football reported.

"For a footballer like him, the doors of Dynamo are always open," said club president Igor Surkis. "If Andriy wants to continue playing top level football we`ll give him this opportunity."

Surkis fears that Shevchenko`s wife, American model Kristen Pazik, would veto a move to Ukraine, just as she was the moving force behind his switch to Chelsea three years ago, seen by many as a disaster for a striker who was seen as the best in Europe at the time he moved to Stamford Bridge but whose career has gone downhill ever since.

"It`s very important too that his own desire coincides with that of his family. His wife may be not so keen on moving to Ukraine," said Surkis.
