Remy, Bendtner could have moved to Russia

Loic Remy and Nicklas Bendtner were both close to joining Spartak Moscow in the January transfer window, according to Izvestia.

The Russian giants decided to overhaul their squad in the winter, letting a number of high-profile players leave and they were after a high-quality striker.

Spartak Moscow in turn contacted both Loic Remy and Nicklas Bendtner, and while both players were ready to move to Russia, their high wage demands ultimately proved a major obstacle.

In addition to asking for high salary, the two players also required a big signing on fee, and the Russian club eventually decided to end their interest.

Loic Remy has largely struggled for playing time this season, having started just one Premier League match for Chelsea.

Nicklas Bendtner found himself in a similar position, as he was in the Wolfsburg starting line-up in just four Bundesliga fixtures, although he did manage to register two goals.
