Nicolas Burdisso


Recommended Posts

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Inter Milan defender Nicolas Burdisso following Ricardo Carvalho's £6.7million move to Real Madrid.

Sportsmail understands that the Blues are keen on Benfica's Brazil defender David Luiz, but a £27million price tag could lead them to look at other targets.

Reports in Italy suggest Carlo Ancelotti could return to Italy for 29-year-old Burdisso, and Inter technical director Marco Branca has added fuel to the fire by confirming there has been interest from England.

The Argentina defender's agent insisted last week there had been no contact yet from Chelsea, but Branca said: 'I can confirm that Burdisso has many admirers in England.'

Ancelotti deployed John Terry and Alex at the centre of his defence in Sunday's 6-0 win against West Bromwich and also has Branislav Ivanovic to call on.

But the Stamford Bridge boss must decide whether to bring in a replacement for Carvalho, who was sold to Real last week or give opportunities to the likes of Michael Mancienne or Jeffrey Bruma.

Like Luiz, Burdisso is versatile enough to play anywhere along the back four. He had hoped to clinch a permanent move to Roma, where he spent last season on loan, but the clubs have failed to agree a fee.

Too Old??

To be honest I don't think we need him, but I set up a discussion anyway
