TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Want Madrid Duo
New boss Andre Villa-Boas is tracking Real Madrid duo Pepe and Angel di Maria, according to reports.
Di Maria was a £23million signing just last summer, but the Argentine superstar has apparently fallen out with Madrid’s hierarchy over a contract extension and would be interested in a move to West London.
Reports in Spain also suggest Villa-Boas will move for Pepe who only has a year left to run on his current deal. Talks are ongoing between the player and club regarding a possible contract extension, but Madrid may be tempted to cash in on the player whilst they still can.
Pepe who is widely regarding as a tough-tackling centre half can also play in central midfielder, so could be an ideal candidate to replace Essien who picked up yet another knee injury at training earlier this week.
