He's on record as saying he's surprised he's still an outside chance for Shanghai and is not really thinking about that.
I think if the chips fall his way he'll take it but I'm not sure he's busting a gut trying to make it as a goal in itself. I don't think he feels he's achieved enough this season to warrant it with the long injury layoff.
Exactly how close is he?
I know he was out for half the year, but he has the talent to be there and his presence will make it far more interesting.
