Luiz Wants Neymar at Chelsea
We have 5 strikers, so why not 6? Chelsea’s Brazilian Centre Back David Luiz is trying to convince Santos striker Neymar to join Chelsea. Luiz was quoted as saying, “Neymar’s getting to know London and he likes it very much. I love it here, too. It’s one of the best cities in the world – all I miss is the beach.” Guess he doesn’t rate Brighton.
Pereira’s Porto Causing a Fuss
Porto have threatened to speak to Fifa about the repeated approaches to their player Alvaro Pereira. The player wanted a move to the Blues and hoped to get his wish on transfer deadline day. Unfortunately, the two clubs’ valuation of the player didn’t align and he was resigned to staying at Porto at least until January.
I’ll say it now and I’ll say it again, Mario Balotelli is a fool. Thankfully we did not sign him! The Italian striker was a second half substitute against Faroe Islands playing the last 6 minutes of the match. He was due to come on earlier in the second half but apparently was playing on his iPad!
