Chelsea will try to sign Alves this summer

British tabloid The Daily Express claims that Chelsea will try to sign Barcelona right back defender and Brazilian international Daniel Alves (25) in the summer (read more here).

Chelsea owner Abramovich would be set to spend this year in order to revolutionise the squad and, even though the Dutchman may not be there to coach them, he has therefore ordered Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink to draw him up a list of summer transfer targets.

Besides Alves, the target list would also include CSKA Moscow left winger Yuri Zhirkov, CSKA Moscow forward Wagner Love, Lyon forward Karim Benzema and Manchester City winger Robinho. That list would cost Chelsea more than 100 million euro if they manage to land them all but the club plans to fund the transfer by also having a mass summer clear-out.

Hope Chelsea knows the word "Buy out clause" because that is what they are going to hear when trying to sign Alves...

It will not happen. Alves has already said that he wish to end his career at barca.

Chelsea have bosignwa, why do they keep this story running?

Dimmu said...

They should have done it earlier.. Alves is with Barca right now and he is not going anywhere.

...NEVER!!!!!...why should he go to chelsea...barca is one of the best clubs in the world,has a long history,an excellent football-culture,plays an attractive football and is a giant...chelsea is nothing...money makes not a big club and gives nor prestige...only fools go to chelsea,only for money...today it's easy for a good footballer to see his character by giving chelsea a rejection...will never see this club winning anything...those pendejos are destroying the last piece of realness football left...but players like gerrard,kaka,alves,messi,dinho,etc. showed them how small they really are...hope it will stay so for the heart of football...for everyone who think alves would leave or barca would let him go...ask yourself if you with the right club or if you feel it...cause it seems you don't know anything about being blaugrana!!!!!

this guy gave 5-6 years to sevilla.. i think he'll give at least 3 to barca.. impossible for him for leaving after only one season!

Anonymous said...

At least 3, Deniz? He has said he will retire at Barcelona, do you hear? That means he will stay much longer than 3 years, this is the reality.

Marc said...

for 100 million euros.... everyone is available

tero said...

Dream on,Chelsea...Alves stays in a right club for him.Alves and Messi are making the most dangerous right wing combination in the world...

Deniz said...

yes I also think he'll stay here until hisretirement but what i meant was that if he ever would leave it wouldn't be until atleast 3 yrs :)

SimonP said...

People keep asking why he would go to Chelsea, the obvious answer is money.

The reason that Barca would consider to sell him, money of course.

Since he cost us over 30 million any possible deal should be 60+ million at least but it's not that likely.

...simonp...it seems you are one of those,i talked about in my last sentence above...when he would go for money,he would have gone many years ago,before barca,when chelsea and other clubs wanted him too...don't underestimate them players loyalty...as gerrard and others showed...he gets enough money too at barca...and our club showed under laporta that it's more about than money...
