Following FC Anzhi shocking move by placing Samuel Eto’o, William and some other players on the transfer market, Chelsea are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of both players while rejecting Barcelona’s repeated request for David Luiz.
On the other hand, The Mirror has claimed that Luiz is thought to find the move appealing and could push to leave Stamford Bridge by the end of the transfer window.
The same report suggests that Barca will have to come up with £50 million if they want any hope of landing the Brazilian.
Chelsea are apparently lining up a move for former Barcelona striker Samuel Eto’o.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen on signing Eto’o along with 24-year-old Brazilian, William Borges Da Silva, after Russian club Anzhi put their entire side up for sale.
The fee for either player is unclear at the moment with Chelsea possibly waiting to see which other sides are going to make their interest official, which could trigger a bidding war.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s planned transfer of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has taken a slight knock.
Rooney has apparently admitted that if he can’t secure a move to Stamford Bridge, he will consider a foreign move to one of the top flight leagues around Europe.
That’s bad news for Chelsea because Manchester United would surely prefer to sell to a team that can’t directly hurt them in the race for silverware.
