Chelsea Transfer News: AVB Turns Attention To £25m Modric Alternative

By on August 28, 2011

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is pushing to land Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims the Blues boss will turn his attention to Moutinho after the club accepted defeat in their attempts to prize Luka Modric away from Tottenham.

Villa-Boas is desperate to add another creative spark to his midfield and hopes to sign Moutinho after he worked with the 24-year old whilst at the helm at Porto.

It is complicated that part of the 24-year-old’s economic rights are owned by a third party and there is a 25 per cent sell-on clause to Sporting Lisbon for offers over £11m, but it’s thought it will take an offer of over £25m to land the ace.

    Stop being such fools mceachran can have his chance but he can’t be a sure starter, and even if he can be we still need another cm because both Ramirez and lampard are looking awful. Wouldn’t mind loaning a new DM or giving Oriol a chance

    Get rid of Mikel he’s useless, Mceachran and Romeu on bench. Put Ramires in Mikel’s roll as he gets stuck in with Lampard and Sneijder. Lamps got one more season left, he can still get goals.
    van der Wiel, Alex/Ivanovic, Terry, Cole
    Lampard, Ramires, Sneijder
    Sturridge, Torres, Mata
    Subs: Lukaku, Mceachran, Romeu, Turnbull, Alex/Ivanovic, Davila.

    I say AVB should forget about modric and get moutinho and perhaps an extra person like perreira and sell someone like kalou and benayoun can go out on loan

    Sneijder is the cheaper and better alternative to Modric and has the experience and class to help Chelsea win big trophies unlike Modric.
