Chelsea choose Maicon as right back

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.

I think that all of the younger players were seriously overpriced, and Di Matteo has made a great choice. Age is not so important in a defender and experience is invaluable. Yes, Chelsea are trying to refresh an aging squad but there has to be a blend of youth and experience.

Maicon is regarded as one of the most reliable right backs in the world and he also has a penchant for scoring spectacular goals. He could really help Chelsea this season and would make a great example for the up and coming players at Stamford Bridge.

I hope that the transfer is confirmed soon as I was worried about the quality and consistency of the players that were being touted as the new right back. All three of the youngsters looked a bit suspect at times, and the Premier league will punish any mistake. With Maicon and a quality striker to replace Didier Drogba, Chelsea can challenge anybody.

Come on you Blues!

    Iva cannot do it alone all season so we need maicon beside luis is going for the olympics and JT will need some rest so Iva will be needed for the central defence.

    This could be a very shrewd move by Chelsea. Maicon only played 23 Serie A games for Inter last term (scoring 2 goals). He is an excllent world class RB who most probably NEEDS a move and fresh challenge to finish his excellent career. Just like our centre backs he would not play every game or anything like it which means Ivanovich will still be utilised. Whether that is enough for the current Chelsea defender only time will tell especially as he will be behind Terry, Cahill AND Luiz in the pecking order for a central defensive roll.

    i’m extremely supportive of Reberto Di Matheo’s choice bcus when u compare Douglas Maicon to the players Derbuchy, van der wiel and the polish right back u’ll certainly see that Maicon is far more better than thereof. The Brazilian sensation is very good in the air, he posses the energy n xperience to deal with the strikers. He does provide goal assist for strikers. Maicon is a great example for up n coming defenders. He’s been playing at the right for ages so he has the prowess. I think signing him is not a mistake
