Chelsea to recall Alcides from PSV

tribalfootball.com - April 27, 2008

Chelsea are ready to bring PSV Eindhoven defender Alcides to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The People says PSV are pleading with Chelsea to extend the loan of defenders Brazilian Alcides and Slobodan Rajkovic.

While Rajkovic, 19, bought from OFK Belgrade, might be allowed to stay away, Chelsea may decide to take a closer look at Alcides, 23, who was signed four years ago and was at Benfica before becoming a regular with PSV's title-winners.

Do we really need him then? We've got those positions covered I thought, unless this Alcides is particularly good.

That's the thing - Alcides is good. I am not sure if he is as good as perhaps say Belletti as at this stage in an attacking sense and he certainly does not have the discipline of Paulo Ferreira, but he is young and an exciting prospect.

And he's young. He can be moulded into a Chelsea standard player. You don't always have to get done players who are past their peak. Another option is Dani Alves, but we tried that and no avail. Remember that we bought Alcides and sent him to PSV for work permit reasons... If this thing gets sorted, then he can join us. If he won't, then this can qualify as a very bad buy.

An interesting fact -

Alcides was kidnapped in Brazil, but was released after he convinced his kidnappers he was not a football player.
