Alcides To Return To Chelsea


Recommended Posts

Chelsea's out-on-loan defender Alcides will return to Stamford Bridge from link club PSV Eindhoven this summer...

The Dutch side, who have an ongoing partnership with Chelsea, have decided not to renew an option to extend his loan deal, which means that the player's future now lies in the hands of manager Avram Grant.

Alcides had played an important role this season, featuring in 30 games for PSV in all competitions, scoring two goals. It had been widely expected that the player would remain in the Netherlands for at least one more season.

The 23-year-old, who is eligible to play international football for both Portugal and Brazil, was at the Philips Stadium in a similar agreement to that which saw Alex spend an additional season with PSV after signing in London, before beginning his Chelsea career this season.

Alcides had played with the reigning Eredivisie champions for over a year, but will now report for pre-season training at Stamford Bridge in early July.

After initially joining Chelsea in 2004, Alcides was sent out on loan straight away, enjoying two impressive years at Benfica before moving to Holland.

Alcides had played for Vitoria and Santos in Brazil before signing for Chelsea, but with Branislav Ivanovic signed in January for £9 million, future prospects of first-team football at the Bridge look bleak at the present time.

I can't see the logic in this one to be honest, there is no place for him here....

This isn't a decision by Chelsea, it's a decision by PSV. They've decided they don't want him, which means we certainly don't.

Would be interesting to know why they don't want him. He played over 30 games for them this season, can't be that unhappy with him.....

Well we will surely look to move him on then i guess.

A loan move to a team such as Fulham or Stoke, etc. would be good for the player.

No way man! Not a possible relegation battling club, I'd prefer it if he signed for a club like Portsmouth to be honest. A manager like Harry Redknapp would be able to offer him the encouragement he needs. Not to mention the possible chance to play alongside Sol Campbell and David James who know the PL from the back of their hand. Their experience would help a player like Alcides.

He has had the best possible loan period, playing regular footbal at PSV in the CL. If he is not ready to come into our squad and be a contender for a staring place then we should not bother in my opinion. Another loan to a PL club who is not as good as PSV will achieve nothing for him....
