Are Chelsea All Set To Go Dutch?

Everybody, myself included, is fed up with all the rumours and talk surrounding Chelsea’s proposed move for Luka Modric, and now the club look as though they are too, as there are reports doing the rounds this morning saying that the club are now turning their attentions to Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

Manchester United have been chasing Sneijder all summer, but they have been put off by the players high wage demands which are believed to be in the region of £200,000 per week. They would not be a problem for Chelsea, nor would the proposed fee of around £35million, as it appears owner Roman Abramovich will stop at nothing in his attempts to regain the Premier League title.

Sneijder appears to be unsettled by all the latest news and he said in an interview at the weekend, “I’m for sale if the right offer comes in. I have five days off after the friendly against England on Wednesday. I expect clarity on my future by then.”

The friendly between England and Holland has now been called off due to all the public unrest in London, so a decision on Sneijder’s future may be made sooner rather than later.

The bookmakers are not fazed by the latest rumours and they think that he will still be going to Manchester United rather than Chelsea, as today they are offering odds of just 1/2 (1.50) on such a move, with 20/1 (21.0) available on a move to Chelsea. So perhaps Chelsea going Dutch is just another rumour, or is it?

    A far better buy than Modric.

  3. Sani yakubu says

    Leave him, we dont need this kind of players with injury concern. He reached 25ers we want player under 20s

  4. Phil says

    Chelsea should coup MU this time around.

  5. kwaja says

    yeah daz true!…,sneijder would b a good signing 2 anyclub bt 4 chelsea wi nw prefer younger players

  6. george says

    sneijder will be a good signing for chelsea

  7. Mali says

    I know sneijder would be a great signing but from what ive seen, avb is more interested in players below 25…. But hey, we gotta wait and see, by next week tho im sure chelsea will have a new CAM or creative CM

  8. Azuchi says

    Younger players don’t mean much if Chelsea is unable to win titles. Sneider is like 2 years older than Modric but is far more guaranteed to deliver when it matters most.Just looked at what he did at the world cup, where most other stars flopped big time.

    Chelsea had better go for Sneider and not Modric!!!

  9. Sean without an *h* says

    he’s just 26 for heaven’s sake…… Just a year older than modric

  10. Mark says

  11. Monasty says

    You had better go for the dutch playmaker now before the time runs out.

  12. Tonna says

    surely sneider will definatly be a great signing 4 chelsea.pls. go and get him now.

  13. charles echendu says

    yeh i strongly believe our midfield should be empowered and i just love the AVB is making it a priority.. Go Andre!! You are the messiah of our beloved “Blue Nation” under the “Roman Empire”… whether it is Modric or Nasri or Guarin or Sneidjer or anybody else.. i just belive that whoever comes at the end of the day, it is the best for us, because i trust AVB to know what Chelsea needs. Period!

  14. Leslie Tinashe Chingosho says

    (Chelsea fan) Awee Sneider will be a good signing for us although in truth i don’t see him coming. I think Modric is a more realistic target for us……….TINASHE LESLIE CHINGOSHO

  15. M.salihu says
