TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Want Madrid Duo

By on July 10, 2011

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.

      He is 28, not well in his 30s. But he probably will go. I don’t see him recovering to full fitness after 3 knee injuries.

      Michael Essien is only 28, and no one is going to buy essien after his third major knee injury, maybe if he gets fit and starts playing well again

    If we want defender, cahill is the only way out. Why is chelsea not buying a holding, attacking midfielder and a winger and finally get lukaku, he is a longterm replacement 4 drogba. Don’t send sturridge on loan. Don’t allow joshua and van aanholt to warm the bench. Born is the king.

    We need a winger not a defender but as a replacement for Essien may be Pepe will do and let Essien be sold next season.

    Josh for starters essien is 28 not well into his 30’s!! And as for pepe, I don’t feel he’s guna be bought as a defender but as the tough tackling holding midfielder. As for di maria. Could be a good aquisition if we can get him for a decent price. Push ahead with them I say

      wow, it’s Florentino Pérez posting in our humble forum. Just because you don’t want players to leave your club it doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. Unless ofcourse you have become the Real Madrid chairman in the last couple of hours..
