REPORTS: Villas-Boas To Launch Bid For Brazilian Defender

By on July 1, 2011

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to rekindle a reunion with Inter Milan’s veteran defender Lucio, according to reports.

The pair worked together when Villas-Boas was assistant at Inter and the tactician is keen to bring the centre-half to Stamford Bridge. The 33-year old only has 12 months remaining on his current deal and has yet to receive a contract extension.

Reports in the media suggest that Chelsea will have to fight of interest from German giants Bayern Munich and French outfit Monaco to sign the defender. The Brazilian has been excellent for Inter since his switch from Bayern in 2009 and was instrumental to the side that won the treble in 2010.

    There’s no way. He is way too old. Chelsea already have six aged and slowing players; they cannot hope to compete with Man U and Barce like that. If they are serious about winning the Premiership they will need to sign some experienced youths: The 6ft3 goal scoring Subotic would be a good option for central defense.

    Avb is a good coach and he knows what he wants. Let him do the signing. He knows the players that can fit in into his plan.

    please Chelsea do not have any problem with the defence, instead he should go for midfelder.
