Carlos confirms Chelsea talks

Recommended Posts

Roberto Carlos has confirmed that Chelsea are attempting to prise him away from Real Madrid.

 

Reports in Spain on Monday claimed The Blues were launching an offensive to try and land the full back, and the Brazilian concedes there has been contact.

 

Jose Mourinho is looking to revamp the squad that claimed a second successive Premiership title this season and left back has been one of the positions that has given him persistent headaches.

 

Spaniard Asier Del Horno has failed to truly convince since his arrival last summer while Wayne Bridge has been sidelined by serious injury.

 

At 33, Carlos is hardly the long-term solution to Mourinho's problem, but the Portuguese coach clearly believes he will prove a top-quality performer for a couple of seasons at least.

 

Spanish radio station Onda Cero claim agreement on a two-year deal is now almost total and that Chelsea are just awaiting the green light from Real.

 

Carlos himself is being slightly more cautious, but admits the interest from The Blues is very real.

 

"Nothing has been signed, although they (Real) have told me that Chelsea want me," he told Marca.

 

"I have told them that they have to speak to Real Madrid as there is a an election period, and I have a contract.

 

"I don't know what will happen in the elections and need to know if the new president and coach will want me.

 

"It's true there is something there with Chelsea and if it becomes concrete then it would be very sad for me to leave Madrid after all these years."

Bridge would be a key assist to not miss out on, but a new striker is our first priority...or better yet selling the likes of Faye, Boumsong, Butt & Luque first...!

I agree we would be mad not to do everything in our power to buy bridge.

 

Roeder should be looking at something like

 

Bridge

Upson

Gudjonsson

Wright Phillips

Nistlerooy

for his shopping list. I know the last 2 would prob cost £10mil+ each but if we can rocoup half that by flogging luque, boumsong, bramble, babayaro, butt, bowyer, ameobi, faye wel be laughing!

Deffo for Gudjonsson he is a great player. SWP no, he isnt upto it IMO. He has bags of pace and thats about it. Rarley comes up with an end product and would cost us too much.

Whilst I agree that is the calibre we should be looking for.

Owen, Gudjohnsson and Horse man all at the toon. Which one of them is going to be happy with a slot on the bench beside Amady?

He'll probably miss the start of the season (and the transfer window), could be an option in January though. Annoyingly, Robson could have had him for the £1.2million Brum payed. In fact we could have had him, Distin andBramble for a little more than we payed for Boumsong.

Well, that was the spin put out by the club. My alternative take on it was this: We had him on loan for a good long while and we 'hummed and harred' about signing him. If we'd offered him a deal earlier we probably would have got him. However, by the time we did, Man City were ready with a better offer.
