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

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.
