In a move that differs from Chelsea’s transfer dealings so far this summer, Roberto Di Matteo is going for experience over youth in his quest for a new right back. 30-year old Brazilian international Maicon could soon be on his way to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are in dire need of a player to replace Jose Bosingwa after the Blues decided to let his contract expire. They have been considering various options such as Debuchy, van der Weil and the Polish defender Lukasz Piszczek. Inter Milan’s seasoned campaigner has got the nod, however.

With Porto trying to extort millions from Chelsea for their Brazilian star, Hulk, the Blues may have been put off. Having already had a bid of £20 million for 22-year old Montenegro international Stevan Jovetic turned down by Fiorentina, the same was thought to be true of that deal.

The Daily Mail reports that Chelsea are ready to up their offer to £25 million in order to trigger the buy out clause in Jovetic’s contract. Roberto Di Matteo is well aware of the Fiorentina front man’s abilities and seems determined to acquire his services at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have been getting some stick from various places for their tactics during the Champion’s league campaign. The latest has come from Brazil but Chelsea’s dynamic Brazilian midfielder has been quick to defend the Blues, Having set up a goal for Drogba in the first leg against Barcelona, and scored Chelsea’s goal of the season in the second leg, Ramires was not going to let people denigrate Chelsea’s achievements.

The coach of Brazilian side Corinthians was criticized for playing a well organized and defensive two games against Santos that got his team to the final. He responded by saying “Corinthians don’t play like Chelsea, Corinthians don’t do anti-football.”

Oscar Cardozo is a powerfully built 29-year old striker currently playing for Benfica in Portugal. At 6 ft 4 inches, he has the stature to fill the gap left by the departure of Didier Drogba. He knows how to finish as well, beating Porto’s Radamel Falcao to be Portugal’s top scorer in the 2009-2010 season.

He repeated his feat last season, so it is unsurprising that Europe’s top teams are interested. Chelsea and Everton have been linked with a move for Cardozo, but super rich French side Paris Saint-Germain have stolen a march on the English clubs.

Despite having signed a lucrative two year deal with Shanghai Shenhua, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has been linked with a shock move to Spanish giants Barcelona. Meanwhile Florent Malouda is considering a move to Vasco de Gama in Brazil.

32-year old Malouda has a year to run on his current deal, but Roberto Di Matteo would not stand in the way of a transfer deal. Chelsea are in the middle of a rebuilding operation, having signed Marko Marin and Eden Hazard. They are also, supposedly, in advanced negotiations with Porto for Brazilian star Hulk. The Blues have to make room for any additions due to the 25-man squad rules in England.

You could forgive Chelsea fans for being exasperated. We thought that Brazilian international Hulk would have been a Chelsea player by now, but the deal seems to be far from complete. Salomon Rondon from Malaga could now br the next player to come to Stamford Bridge,

22-year old Rondon is a Venezuelan international who has been top scorer for the Spanish side in his last two seasons. He also has an impressive record of eight goals in 24 international games. His height and physique make him a potential replacement for the beast himself, Didier Drogba.

Chelsea hero Didier Drogba has made up his mind and will sign for Shanghai Shenhua. The Ivorian hit will be paid £200,000 a week on a two and a half year contract. He will, therefore, renew his strike partnership with former Chelsea player Nicolas Anelka.

“I hope to help promote Chinese football around the world and further improve links between China and Africa.”

Drogba and Chelsea visited China last year and the striker was impressed with what he saw and by the passion of the fans. After scoring nine goals in nine cup finals, Chelsea fans should be glad that they will not have to face Drogba in any competition this season. We all wish him well and thank him for his great contribution to Chelsea.

Roman Abramovich may come back with a bigger offer for the 22-year old Montenegrin striker Stevan Jovetic. Italian side Fiorentina have turned down Chelsea’s offer of £20 million, according to the Daily Star.


Chelsea need to replace Drogba and Kalou and give support and competition to newly confident Fernando Torres. Hulk will hopefully be joining Chelsea soon but often plays as a winger. Jovetic plays as a second striker but still managed 14 league goals from 27 games last season.

The now Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has been talking about his decision to leave the Champions League winning side on a high after playing such a brilliant part in winning both trophies this season, and he says their is absolutely no animosity between himself and the club he loves so much.

Even at 34 years of age, Drogba is certainly not the type of player that needs stuff like Maxiraw whey protein isolate to help build up his muscles and he will be more than strong enough to keep banging in goals for a good few more years yet, but he insists that his reason for leaving Chelsea is nothing to do with getting one more big pay day.

The careers of Didier Drogba and Jose Mourinho went interstellar at the same time. Mourinho had performed miracles with Porto, winning first the UEFA cup, followed by the Champion’s league before moving to Chelsea in 2004.

Drogba arrived at Chelsea the same year and the two never looked back. Drogba scored the winning penalty in this season’s Champion’s league final to give him his 12th winner’s medal in a Chelsea shirt, while Mourinho has been successful wherever he went. He has won 13 trophies in three different countries since he signed for Roman Abramovich.
