Chelsea

Portugal international a certainty for Chelsea if they lose out on expensive stars

Published

on

Chelsea will turn their full attention to Porto’s Moutinho should they fail in their attempts to land Udinese’s Alexis Sanchez and Brazilian starlet Neymar from Santos.

Both players are on Chelsea’s wishlist but there is a firm belief that Neymar is keen to join Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid with Alexis Sanchez opting for their Spanish rivals Barcelona. Chelsea currently have offers on the table for both players but should neither deal go their way they shall quickly turn their attentions to Villas-Boas’ former club Porto to make an offer for Moutinho who currently has a large release clause in his contract.

Villas-Boas has always been keen on the playmaker since arriving at Stamford Bridge, preferring his former midfielder to that of Tottenham Hotspur’s Luka Modric with whom Chelsea have now become frustrated at and will now wait for the player to instigate a move should he really be keen on a London switch.

    I hope our new Manager is the one making the calls. Let him choose and play his own game. This will inspire success I suppose. Players should be careful with signing contracts. I am so tired of hiring all these release clause nonsense. Way too greedy…

    hey scott think u miss read that switch means he want to leave spurs and switch to another london club and that my friend is only chelsea… Pastore price is high at 45 mil i think ganso is better at that price

    Pastore looks a bit like Kaka in his prime. Great movement and awareness of players around him. He scores goals and opens defenses. However £45m? If our illustrious leader wants him badly enough young Javier could well be wearing blue next season.I believe he would add quality and imagination to our team in an area where we seemed a little lacking last time around.

    It’s funny reading all these transfer rumours ,spurs linked with every player Chelsea linked with every player ,Liverpool buying every player , man city buying every player , football has become a joke ,it’s clearly designed to keep the masses in control From the real issues ,if we all spent time on what the f?!£&ck is going on with our planet than these overpaid primadonnas ur weekend would be far more constructive u need to wake up people ,football used to be the people’s game now it’s greed like everything else ,we have truly lost are way ,

    its funny that neymar has opted to sign for real madrid.This may be the start of his downfall.can’t he borrow a leaf from his compatriot Robinho…he may end up a big flop at Madrid given the guerrilla tactics of Mour.As for Chelsea they should concentrate on signing players interested in signing for them,…the likes of Javier pastore,Lukaku and luka modric’ and leave neymar and co. off!

    chill out a bit mate, I’m fairly sure there are more things on peoples plates than just the worries of football. the media create the hype because they need to talk about something, most of its spurious but people like reading it because it s interesting when you follow football, speculation is one of the best things about football.

    From Editor: Translated Version:

    Chelsea should sign players that have the interest of the club, not greedy and self enriched players, would have preferred Neymar, so skillful, all the same, it’s up to him, Up the Blues! 🙂

    I don’t know if chelsea are waiting for all clubs to start chasing the players they need be4 making full moves, i believe the owner knows that man united are signing players, and i believe that he want to win next season? He should use his big head now

    Chelsea want to win under AVB i believe, i think is high time the owner should start signing players called by AVB, because man united are signing and they also want to win. Money is nothing if you can’t sign what you want. Charlie adams is a good player because you need home base players

    Abrahamovic should know vividly well that we chelsea fans around the globe loves this club chelsea with a passion. If truely he want to win champions league next season, he needs to act fast. Pastore is a good player. Neymar is okay, but pride is killing him now. He has to sign now before is too late..

    Chelsea need to know and realise that time is running out, and that “the early bird catches the worm” – so sign serious mature minded players like Pastore and Modric quickly, and forget about confused and pompous “wanna be’s like Neymar – Chelsea will do pretty well without that egotistic pomp.Get tried and tested guys who know what Chelsea wants, and do it fast !!!!
