Tiote - Chelsea target

Chelsea are lining up a £64m triple swoop as part of their summer rebuilding project, according to reports today.

Owner Roman Abramovich looks set to have one of his busiest summer at the Bridge, as he not only has to find a new manager to replace Andre Villas-Boas, but he will also have to oversee the revamping of his Chelsea squad in order to make them title-challengers once again.

Chelsea target Newcastle Pair

According to the Independent, Newcastle duo Cheick Tioté and Tim Krul have been identified as two key signings this summer, and the Blues are prepared to pay £30m for their services.

The report claims that Tioté has attracted interest from the likes of Man Utd and Liverpool in recent months, but Chelsea are prepared to offer Newcastle £20m for his signature.

The 25-year-old has been a revelation on Tyneside since his move from Twente in 2010 and is seen by Chelsea officials as the defensive midfielder they require to offer protection to their backline

Krul has also been one of Newcastle’s most consistent performers this season and the Independent claim Chelsea are finally ready to replace Petr Cech and see the 23-year-old Dutchman as the perfect candidate. They are confident a £10m bid will be enough to persuade Alan Pardew into selling and it would represent a huge profit on the £200,000 they spent on him in 2005.

Hulk fee agreed

The next part of Abramovich’s rebuilding project is striker Hulk, with the Telegraph reporting that the Blues have already held negotiations with Porto and successfully struck a £34m deal to sign the Brazilian this summer.

The report claims that the 25-year-old has an £85m release clause in his contract, but Chelsea have been able to agree a reduced fee due to the fact the player has personally asked to leave Portugal this summer.

They also suggest that Chelsea will attempt to partner Hulk with Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao in what will be a formidable strike force if they land the pair.

    I hope some1 CFC gets this. Please please and please the targets are ok but you do not need Krul and Tiote. Also Hulk’s price is too hefty. Lets do this;

    get Falcao, De Jong, Tiote(If Romeu leaves), Robben, Lavezzi and a very good attacking right full back (Van de Wiel). Sell Lukaku, Kalou, Malouda, Mikel, Essien, Bosingwa, Ferreira.

    Give Drogba a year to year deal like Giggs. Leave Lampard and Terry for experience. Encourage Bertrand and Van Anholt. Admonish Sturridge cos he is damn selfish. He wants to be like Robben/Messi but it does not happen overnight. Please tell the team especially Sturridge to pass to Torres when he can. Warn Ashley Cole to improve defensively and attack the opponents goal like before. Lukaku was a mistake.

    Finally Ramires is my player of the season.

    i will be a great buy but sturridge should leave if he don’t pass to torres,ramires and mata are chelsea best….hulk welcome to chelsea f.c

    Let us not castigate Lukaku because he hasn’t been given enough playing time like our other strikers. Morestill,he’s coming from a different league. Mikel to me is better than Tiote. Essien is a very nice player but,injury haven’t helped him at all. Van deil weil will be nice buy for us. Hulk at £34 million is though expensive but,he also will prove a nice buy for us. I don’t think we need a goalkeeper now. We’ll need a striker like Falcao to boost our strike force. Up Chelsea.

    it is a welcome development to have Hulk and Falcao in the Attack but for krul forget about it and we can also get Tiote because he is a good player.

      Tiote,falcao&hulk r not d type of players chelsea need yes, we need a sharp striker like-fernando_lloriente,a creative midfielder like modric & yes a keeper that will compete with our no1.

      • Dan

        March 21, 2012 at 1:37 am

        We dont need Falcao its true, but we need a winger (hulk) and an actual ball-winning midfielder, which we havent had since makelele. Mikel is not destructive enough and Essien was always better as a box to box player. Lloriente isnt required while we have torres, who just needs better (or any) service…at least one other wing is needed…unless of course Sturridge stops being so selfish

    The very first thing that Roman Abramovich should do (whoever he chooses as new Manager) is to appoint John Terry as player/assistant Manager and coach. The new Manager is guaranteed to then have the full backing of the senior players. All of this talk of new players coming in is rubbish at this stage as Chelsea do not know whether they will be able to offer Champions League football next term and the financial implications that will mean.

      do not comment here again because you do not know anything about football,am sure you are English Man,any player who do not respect his Coach is not suppose to be in the Chelsea team,Lampard should leave Chelsea because he thinks he can do anything he wants there,do you watch Dortmund players how they play,menh in football there is nothing like Senior players at all,after all when AVB was at Chelsea all the so called Senior players were playing games and they could not get a result,please we should not be carried away because we win Napoli and some division 2 team

    Forget Hulk. He will follow AVB.

    This is what needs to happen at al positions:

    We don’t need Krul, Cech at 29 still has lots of very good years ahead of him. He’s been good this season..he saved our asses lots of times. If it weren’t for him we would have been worst of! And in a few years time when he is done..we will have Cortois..who at 20 is already very good! And now I think Turnbull is good enough to be our second choice. Keep him.

    We certainly need a great natural RB who is equally as good in attack as defense. Someone like vd Wiel. I would keep Bosingwa, yes he isn’t the best, but would be great to have him as a backup. Its great that Hutchinson recovered and I think he needs some time and should be back more regularly in the first team squad. If he didn’t suffer such injury he would be our new RB and in contention for England. I like Ferreira but maybe its time for him to go.

    We have great defenders in Ivanovic, Cahill, Luiz, Terry, I don’t think we need anymore in this department. We can bring Bruma back as extra cover..he is also great prospect for the future.

    Cole in my eyes is still brilliant. Bertrand is next in line to succeed him. He is good enough and will be better in few seasons. We also have van Aanholt in that position as a future posibilty.

    We have Essien, Romeu is excellent!! If they two stay we have great possibilties in them. Mikel should or two good performances doesn’t rectify seasons long of under performing! If Chelsea do want to replace Mikel..get Khedira!!!

    Ramires is fantastic..he can keep running and running for ever. Meireles is great to have..also has great energy and can play a variety of positions. And we also have little Josh McEachren who needs his place!

    Keep Lampard..I think he still has a role to play. But we maybe need someone Hamsik. Then we should bring either Piazon or Davilla back for extra cover.

    We have brilliant Mata!!! I think Kalou should not Chelsea caliber player! Is only sometimes good as a sub against a “not so good” team when the game is already won. Get Hazard!! He is so good! Keep Malouda as backup for left and Sturridge as backup for right. Then we should bring in some young wingers like Lalkovic from the academy.

    Love the Drog!! But sadly he should go. Replace him with Cavani. Then imagine Torres and Cavani upfront. BUT… If from now till the end of the season Torres don’t improve..let him go. And replace him with Falcao. Cavani and Falcao upfront would be just as good! And keep Lukaku..he is young, big and strong, got pace! But pleas play him more!!

    With this squad and the correct manager Chelsea would be a super formidable team in Europe!

    Come on Chelsea and Mr Roman..pleas do it right this time!

    Love Chelsea..Chelsea for life!!!

    Forget Tiote Mikel is better as Romeu. Hulk, Falcao, Modric, William & Krul are welcome. Let Chelsea encourage Sturrige to release ball in time. Blues 4 live

    34m is not a bad price 4 Hulk. Chelsea shd buy him, a rightback(van der wiel), an attacking midfielder like Hazard, steven nzonzi(many will ignore him because he plays 4 blackburn but watch him in action), sell selfish and useless sturridge, malouda, kalou, meireles(coz he’s not happy), and bosingwa, we dont need a goalie. What was the need of buying courtois? Bring back Mceachran, bruma and De Bruyne. In short, we need 2 buy only 3 players; Hulk(he is both a winger n a central striker), an attacking m.fielder and a right back.

    vince mata is not a winger

    • Vince

      March 20, 2012 at 6:50 pm

      bradie I know Mata isn’t a conventional winger..and you can see I also mentioned Sturridge, Malouda and Kalou in the winger position, if you know chelsea you will know that this is were they play and were there’s a place for them. As for Mata..I know he is good in a more central role but at the wing is were he began and made his mark at Valencia and Spain and he is very good playing there!

  13. Victomite

    March 20, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    Chelsea till we vacate dis world…2me hulk is a very gud player lykwise sturridge. Sturridge should b told wen u ‘re playin as a winger, ur main insight should b on setting-up goals nt trying to poach them in urself

  14. BIGG'Tee

    March 20, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    We need player like Hulk & Falcao 2 partner Torres. Drogba shld go so dat.we dnt need keeper 4now bcos we’ve already gotten replacement 4 Cech,is d first choice 4 A/madrid. We also need Modric 2 bolster our mid-field.

  15. Ifeanyichukwu

    March 20, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    I tink buying krul nd tiote is nt a gud ideal..we already hav a goal keeper on loan n his doing wel..oriol is a gud defencive milfilder we should gv him a chance..if we r talking abt players to buy..lucas morra wil b a great buy in d attacking line. Williams,hulk,lavenzzi,van de weil..harzard,roben..inler, my opinion on coach..get att.bilbou coach his gud

  16. zuto

    March 20, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Chelsea should get hulk, falcao, willian, tiote and van der wiel. And bring back micheacran, bruma and de bruyne. And promote piazon and davilla to first team. And sell drogba, ferreira and malouda. And appoint di matteo as manager.

  17. Chinedu

    March 20, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Pls Chelsea ,we need players that will be competing for best player like Arjen Robben, Hulk, Munain, Falcoa or Cavani, Modric or Lucas Moura, Tiote, Van Der Wel. We need to sale players like Drogba, Malouda, Kalou, Ferriera and Essien. We dont need a goalkeeper we have Cech he is strong and well experineced and also Cotious on loan and he is very good. Up blues!!

  18. kichi

    March 20, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Tiote is the only good spend there. We can release Essien and Obi Mikel, Romeu and Tiote can step in. Cech is still good for the gk role, and we just bought Courtois last year, let him grow into the team. As for Hulk, why??? We have Torres, Sturridge, Lukaku, Bamford or whatever the kids name is and there are others like Pogba available. Also if we get Walcott why??
    But yeah Drogba, Lampard, Obi Mikel, Cole, Malouda, Bosingwa, Feriera, Kalou all thank you very much for your service but everyone comes and goes.

    March 20, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    haha… Nice article though full of lies. The financial fair play rule is around the corner. Am a chelsea fan bt i dnt think it makes sense to buy a keeper nw when cech is stil ok n coartois is on the way. Tiote, good proposition. Hulk, he would cost much more than that.

  20. Sanni Ademola Nias

    March 20, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    March 20, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    All ya ain’t reading news and ain’t current. Know now that we heavily need Tim Krul as perfect and direct replacement for ageing and injury prone Cech. Right now, Cech is battling with serious triple injuries: knee, back and head injuries. Seriously we need Krul because Cech may break down any time from now according to senior health officers at Chelsea. So palies get that into your dame skull. Blues for life!!!

    • Vince

      March 20, 2012 at 9:28 pm

      Where do you get this? Firstly..his head injury is a thing of the past..he only wears the protection as precaution. And do you really think Chelsea would let him play if he has serious knee and back problems? And what ‘ senior health officers’ are you speaking about??

  24. fsammy

    March 20, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    drogba,lamp,fer,mal,kal,essien,bos should pls go while vdw,hazard,kakuta,lucas moura,falcao or calvani,josh,sam,bruma, should all to tiote,krul or hulk.Experience in d form of terry,ashley,cavani,mata,cech, 2geda with young blood will make the team successful
