  1. Toby Alderweireld

    According to rumours in the media, we would exchange Filipe Luis for Toby Alderweireld this summer with Atlético. Alderweireld plays on loan this season for Southampton. He is a Belgian international and can perfectly play centre back and right back. He has had a very good season. At this topic, you can see the Southampton fans are crazy about him. A lot of them think he's their best defender of the past 25 years (page 2): http://www.saintsweb.co.uk/showthread.php?53983-Toby/page2#.VUoNkJP0xg8
  2. General Transfer Talk

  8. Didier Drogba

    Didier Drogba proves why he has to be Chelsea's top dog - and that means Fernando Torres must start on the bench against Manchester United Struggling Spaniard can make bigger impact as a substitute against Manchester United, but the Ivorian powerhouse must be the one to lead the Blues' line on Tuesday By Wayne Veysey at Stamford Bridge Apr 10, 2011 9:30:00 AM There are some big beasts in the Chelsea jungle. But there is only one top dog – and that is Didier Drogba. Following Fernando Torres' deadline-day switch, a pack of feared predators have been queuing up to bare their teeth at the point of the attack. But on the evidence of the audition for Tuesday's season-hinging match at Manchester United, only Drogba has the bite to compliment the bark. Chelsea's centre-forward required careful guarding against Wigan Athletic. He ran the channels, bashed defenders out of the way in a manner in which only he can, created space for others with smart movement and banged in shots from all angles whenever he had a sniff of goal. In manager-speak, he put in a shift. He was also wasteful, too, in his desire to breach the dam erected by Roberto Martinez and prove he is lord of the manor at the Bridge. Excellent free-kick positions were wasted and team-mates were sometimes ignored as he strove in search of something that would guarantee his master's approval. Carlo Ancelotti claims he already knows his team and the system he will play at Old Trafford in the quarter-final second leg. He provided a big hint by binning 4-4-2 and starting with the 4-3-3 formation that has been Chelsea's bread and butter since the Jose Mourinho days. Drogba alone up front, Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda either side of him and a three-man midfield patrolled by Frank Lampard, Ramires and John Obi-Mikel. Like John Terry, who was not in the matchday squad, Torres and Michael Essien were 'rested'. Feeling blue | Torres has failed to score in 648 minutes at Chelsea since deadline-day move As a dress rehearsal, it can be said to only have been a partial success. By the end of the first half, as Chelsea searched for greater cutting edge, Anelka was playing alongside Drogba. At half-time, the ineffective Mikel was withdrawn and Yossi Benayoun was summoned from the bench for his first Chelsea appearance since September 22. By that point, it was back to the 4-4-2 formation originally introduced to shoehorn Torres into the starting XI. Anelka made way for the Spaniard a third of the way into the second period after linking well with Drogba but failing to offer the kind of threat of which he is capable. Torres' 31-minute performance was a considerable improvement on his previous 617 minutes in the blue shirt. He was industrious, lively and found himself in some excellent goalscoring positions. There was everything but the goal. How the Bridge willed him to break his Chelsea duck. Malouda's goal coaxed Wigan out of their half and provided the kind of space behind the centre halves that would have been an amusement park for the Torres of two years ago. One Drogba cross narrowly avoided his lunging body. A long ball from the back sent him clear on goal but Torres' first touch, not for the first time in a desperate 10 weeks in west London, let him down. With the clock counting down, Benayoun side-footed a short pass into his path in the penalty area with no Wigan defenders in sight. The crowd held its breath as Torres shaped to pull the trigger. Surely, this would be it. Torres' connection with the outside of his right boot was true. The ball was heading for the back of the net. But Ali Al Habsi, whose reflexes had been in good working order all afternoon, stretched out his arm at the last millisecond and diverted the ball to safety. It was a mighty fine save but something is still missing for the Chelsea No. 9. You feel Torres in his 2007-09 pomp would not have given Al Habsi the opportunity to show off his athleticism. With his job and legacy possibly depending on the outcome of the Champions League quarter-final, Ancelotti cannot afford to indulge Roman Abramovich's marquee signing from the start on Tuesday. For the Italian, it has to be Drogba leading the line, with two creators either side of him. Just the way the Ivorian likes it. The support act is not one that suits him or Torres. They both have to be the main man. Malouda is likely to get the nod over Yuri Zhirkov as Saturday's Spring sunshine reawakened the player that had laid dormant for six months. Yossi Benayoun is fit to start after making his first appearance for Chelsea since September 22 on Saturday but it would represent a gamble by Ancelotti to prefer him to Anelka, whose versatility and awareness should guarantee him a starting point. He is also the club's leading scorer this season with 16 goals. Poor Salamon Kalou, scorer of nine goals this season – the same as Torres – will once again be shunted out to the sidelines. Whatever the future of the Big Four strikers holds beyond this season, Ancelotti must concentrate on the here and now. It will suit Chelsea, and perhaps Torres too, for the club's record signing to be an impact substitute against United's tiring defenders. That means letting the club's top Drog off the leash from the first minute. Link

  11. Izzy Brown

    Chelsea Set To Complete Izzy Brown DealChelsea will shortly complete the signing of 16 year-old forward Isaiah ‘Izzy’ Brown from West Bromwich Albion after the finer details of the move were finalised on Friday. The Blues have held a long-standing interest in the Peterborough-born youngster but only accelerated the process of signing the England youth international in recent weeks. Perhaps spurred into action by his ascent into professional football and the potential of losing him to another club – he spent a week on trial at Arsenal in January – they decided to make their move. Brown made his Premier League debut towards the back end of last season barely two months after his sixteenth birthday. The Baggies’ Academy Player of the Year appeared at Under-21 and Under-18 level whilst still a schoolboy and was a regular feature for Kenny Swain’s Three Lions in their Victory Shield campaign. He is capable of playing as either an out and out forward or as a wide attacker and is blessed with skill, pace, strength and finishing ability. He will join a group of first-year scholars featuring Jeremie Boga, Charly Musonda, Charlie Colkett and others before penning professional terms next summer, and will likely feature across all youth age groups under both Dermot Drummy and Adi Viveash. West Brom will receive standard up-front compensation for the lifelong Chelsea supporter, roughly to the tune of £200,000 for his training and development up to this point. There is the potential for upwards of seven figures to make its way to The Hawthorns over the course of Brown’s Chelsea career should he reach the professional ranks, and they will be due a percentage of any future profit made on the player should he be sold. http://thechels.net/2013/07/chelsea-set-to-complete-izzy-brown-deal/ http://www.weaintgotnohistory.com/2013/7/7/4501848/west-bromwich-albion-Isaiah-brown-chelsea-transfer-training-update P.S.

  14. Antonio Rüdiger

    'CHELSEA are set to go head-to-head with Manchester United for Antonio Rudiger [...]' http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/520633/Chelsea-news-transfers-Wenger-Rudiger If this piece of news is true, I'll lose all faith in our manager and scouts. Since I am also a fan of VfB Stuttgart, I have been watching Rüdiger on a regular base since his arrival into the first team. He is young. That's the only positive argument concerning him. He doesn't seem to develop as rapidly as thought and most Stuttgart fans regret that the offer of Monaco to buy him was rejected. Antonio Rüdiger often shows solid performances but he frequently makes huge mistakes leading to goals for the opposition. In my opinion, he is no Chelsea material but would fit into a midtable side. With Zouma, Chelsea have a defender with much more potential in its squad. This rumour doesn't make sense to me at all. Rüdiger is maximum average - nothing more.
  15. Ruben Neves

    CHELSEA are interested in signing highly-rated Porto midfielder Ruben Neves in January, according to reports http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/605414/Chelsea-battle-Barcelona-Real-Madrid-bid-for-Porto-Ruben-Neves-Transfer-News-Gossip?_ga=1.246713348.1086984025.1442022230 An article in UEFA.com described Neves as a defensive midfielder that is not afraid to go forward and prompt attacks, showing great maturity combined with an accurate passing skill, great vision and an astute sense of positioning. His playing attributes also granted him comparisons to Portuguese international João Moutinho for his fine first touch, similar desire to press his opponents and excellent distribution.[12] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%BAben_Neves

  21. Gianelli Imbula

    http://metro.co.uk/2013/01/09/chelsea-working-on-deal-for-guingamp-midfielder-giannelli-imbula-3345496/ Chelsea are reportedly working on a deal for Guingamp midfielder Giannelli Imbula after receiving glowing scouting reports on the player. Imbula, who is a regular for Ligue 2 side Guingamp, has impressed talent spotters from both Arsenal and QPR in recent months, but Chelsea believe they can bag the midfielder who has already been dubbed as ‘the new Patrick Vieira’. Blues boss Rafa Benitez is said to have made the 20-year-old his top transfer priority, after the club kick started their January spending with a deal for Newcastle striker Demba Ba last week. However, Imbula is not likely to come cheap, with reports in France suggesting that Guingamp will only do business if his £6million release clause is met – something that is doubtful at present. Chelsea scouts, who sent Benitez a detailed report on the player earlier this month, are urging the club to push through a deal, and talks are set to continue this week. Guingamp are likely to request that Imbula remains with them on-loan until the end of the season, and could accept a lower fee if Chelsea agree to that.

    http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11865/9710480/chelsea-target-paulo-dybala-is-almost-certain-to-be-sold-in-summer-says-palermo-president Obviously been a target for us. 21 year old with decent scoring record in Serie A but obviously badly advised. No club in the world will pay him 15m wages per year. Maybe we can acquire him cheaply, loan the shit out of him and sell him for a profit.
