Anelka, 33, left the Blues in December to join his present employers on a two-year deal. He has started four games this season, scoring twice, and will now take his first steps into management.
He said on Twitter: "It's official I just become (sic) the new player-manager of Shanghai Shenhua."
Anelka also enjoyed playing spells at Arsenal, Bolton and Liverpool, among others.
