Chelsea to raid Porto (but not for Falcao!)

When Andre Villas-Boas first arrived at Chelsea a lot was made of the fact that he would return to Porto and sign a few of the top name players. As yet that has not happened, but there are fresh rumours doing the rounds today that it will be sooner rather than later.

It is not for Radamel Falcao or Joao Moutinho though, but for Brazilian striker Hulk. Villas-Boas is going to up his interest in the striker who scored 36 goals in 51 appearances last season, as he looks to add to his squad before the transfer window closes next month.

One stumbling block maybe the fee, as Hulk is under contract at Porto until 2016. Some reports suggest that it may cost Chelsea in the region of €100 Million to tempt Porto to sell, but they may offer a player or two as part of the deal. Didier Drogba maybe one?

More will become clear when Chelsea return home from their pre-season tour, but Villas-Boas will not give up lightly on a player who he holds in such high regard.

It could be an interesting and busy time at Stamford Bridge next week because Chelsea could also make one final offer for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric. Chelsea fans will be watching the news very closely as the Roman Abramovich cheque book could be in for a bashing over the coming weeks.

    Chelsea should make signings and stop insisting they got better side which could not win even carling cup…shame blues…..

  2. babaoo says

    Why hulk? We dont need hulk,sign modric or moutiho. Are dis chelsea board fulls? Cant they see we dont av a midfielder.

  4. EduEduBor says

  5. rodgers m jnr says

    francis can you call last season good?last season was hell:we were tommented,woshed and embaranced.if you compare the points we had last season with 2004-2005 season,there is a very big diffarence we didnt even diseve 2 be on second,maybe 8,9 would have been batter 4 us.2004-2005 was fantastic

  6. Abibda says

    We could all see how chelsea lacked creativity in the mid field that shows we are in need of some one like javier pastore or modric only we dont need a stricker.we can only buy a stricker for the future like lukaku not to buy hulk which will cause more confusion in selection.
