Chelsea agree deal for Belletti


Belletti scored his first goal for Barca in the Champions League

Chelsea have agreed a deal to bring Barcelona right-back Juliano Belletti to Stamford Bridge.

The 31-year-old Brazilian will seal a reported two-year deal once he has agreed personal terms and completed a medical in London.


Belletti joined Barcelona in 2004 from Villarreal but only made 13 appearances for the Catalan club last season.


The Brazilian scored the winning goal in Barcelona's Champions League win over Arsenal in 2006.


Chelsea are believed to have turned their attention to Belletti after their attempt to sign Dani Alves stalled again.


Sevilla turned down two improved offers for the full-back this week, with Chelsea and Real Madrid both in the hunt.
