Pre-season training at Chelsea is underway. Some of the players are away after their exertions at Euro 12, while some are expected to join up with their national Olympic squads and therefore, itai??i??ll still be a while before manager Roberto Di Matteo addresses a ai???full squadai??i?? for the first time. New signings Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Marko Marin have reported for duty. Infact both De Bruyne and Marin trained together at the clubai??i??s Cobham base much before the rest of the players arrived.

However, there is still a long way to go before Chelseaai??i??s squad is perfectly assembled and ready to challenge on not just the usual four, but on seven fronts this season. The Community Shield, UEFA Supercup and the Club World Cup adds to the fixture list. One of the problems of having a squad full of international players means that they have to also report for national team duty when called. Suffice to say that if Chelsea are to make the most of this unique opportunity to add more silverware, there is an urgent need for not just a large squad, but one that is also competitive.

When Chelsea did the League and F.A.Cup double under Carlo Ancelotti in the 2009 ai??i?? 2010 season, the board and the manager made a grave error. Chelsea could have chosen to consolidate upon their title win, instead the club decided to let go of five senior players ai??i?? Joe Cole, Ricardo Carvalho, Juliano Beletti, Deco and Micheal Ballack. And the replacements joined in from within the academy. Josh McEachran, Jeffrey Bruma, Gael Kakuta, Sam Hutchinson and Billy Clifford were all introduced to the first team.

It was a noble effort, but trying to integrate five young players into the squad eventually proved to be too ambitious and the lack of depth started to show. With Ramires and Yossi Benayoun as the only two major signings of the summer(David Luiz and Torres signed only in the winter), Chelsea almost made up a 15 point deficit on eventual champions Manchester United, but lost to the Old Trafford team away from home in a pivotal fixture. Manchester United werenai??i??t particularly strong that season, and in hindsight, there is definitely a feeling that Chelsea could have won back to back titles if the club had had more quality and squad depth.

Drawing from the signings that Chelsea has so far made this summer and going by the muttering through the transfer grapevine, it seems that the issue of squad depth is certainly being addressed. Didier Drogba, Jose Bosingwa and Salomon Kalou have bid their goodbyes with the club securing Hazard, Marin and De Bruyne thus far. So, let us take a look at what this summer promises to bring further, for the Chelsea faithful.

POTENTIAL TARGETS AND LIKELY ARRIVALS

 

Hulk - Waiting on a move

 

Hulk ai??i?? This one has been going on for a while now. There has been talk that Chelsea and Porto had agreed upon a fee (when there were a flood of reports saying it had been done), however, Porto only own 85% of his rights (which finds a mention here). And the Premier Leagueai??i??s strict rules on third party ownership means that Porto now have to buy 15% of his rights from Urguayan club Renistas who own it (though he hasnai??i??t played ever for them). This complicated situation has effectively put negotiations in a limbo. Chelseaai??i??s unwillingness to go any further than a 30m fee means that this could very well drag on right until the end of the window.

Maicon ai??i?? Rumors about the Brazilian full back as a surprise link to Chelsea abound, with various reports emerging not out of England or Italy, but out of Spain (thanks to Madridai??i??s prolonged interest in the player) mentioning that a deal between Inter and Chelsea had been agreed for just a price of 6m. Conflicting reports now emerge that Madrid might still have to say something about the transfer because Mourinho sees Maicon as ideal competition for Arbeloa.

Should he eventually sign for Chelsea, Maicon will prove to be an astute signing for the club. The Euros witnessed Van Der Weil, Mathieu Debuchy, Joao Perreira, Lucasz Piszczek et al, but, neither of these full backs had an air of convincing authority about them. Piszczek was perhaps the best of the lot, but would be an expensive signing and at 27, is not going to have much of a resale value. It then makes sense for the London club to sign a proven performer in Maicon at a relatively cheap price and perhaps look into the market at a later stage. Also, one must not forget about Branislav Ivanovicai??i??s normally assured presence in the Chelsea team.

Victor Moses ai??i?? The 10m rated Wigan man can play across the front three and has apparently completed the most amount of successful dribbles this past season. Chelsea made a 3.5m opening bid which was swiftly rejected by the Wigan chairman. Thereafter, it seems like Chelsea have upped the ante by doubling the initial bid and with add on clauses inserted, it does match upto Wiganai??i??s 10m demand. Wigan however would like more cash upfront as they owe 20% of Moses sell on fee to his former club Crystal Palace. (And we now know how Wigan managed to sign him back then, when top clubs were after him).

The question on everybodyai??i??s minds seems to be about just where Moses fits in. Moses plays the right forward position predominantly and his signing interferes with the interests of both Sturridge and Hulk. Does this signal the end of the road for Daniel Sturridge at Chelsea? Or does this mean Chelsea will end their interest in Hulk? Only time will tell. However, with his agent having vowed to try everything possible to get him to Chelsea, this is one transfer that could come to a swift conclusion.

Sights set on a Chelsea move

Stevan Jovetic ai??i?? The Montenegrin-born 22-year-old player is another in an array of attacking players linked with the Stamford Bridge natives. His parent club Fiorentina do not want to sell him, but ai???The Violaai??i?? are in need of urgent restructuring and repairs after finishing a lowly 13th in the table this season. Jovetic is still only young and can afford to stick with Fiorentina as they intend to build a team around him. However with not just Chelsea, but Liverpool and Arsenal also in the fray, their resolve is sure to be tested this summer. Word on the street is that a 20m bid would persuade the team from Florence to part with their prized asset.

Stevan Jovetic is likely to be seen as a younger back up to Fernando Torres. However the versatile forward is capable of playing as a proper number 10 and is certain to add to Chelseaai??i??s attacking depth. His maturity belies his age and he showed his strength of character when he recovered after a season out through a cruciate ligament injury to shine bright with 14 goals and 3 assists, in an ultimately disappointing season for Fiorentina.

Luka Modric ai??i?? While Chelsea havenai??i??t yet actively shown any signs of signalling interest in the Croatian this summer, the media have nevertheless helped stir the pot. The story so far seems to be that Tottenham would rather sell him to a club abroad than in England which puts Real Madrid at the front of the queue. If recent reports are to be believed, Modric has agreed personal terms with the Spanish giants and is believed to be on his way to the Bernabeu. However a quintessential twist to the tale is provided by Madridai??i??s inability to pay a 35m fee upfront (they need to offload a few players) and also by Nuri Sahinai??i??s unwillingness to replace Modric at Tottenham, thereby ruling out any possibly of a potential swap.

As has been mentioned earlier on TheHardTackle, there is no doubt that Modricai??i??s signing would strengthen Chelsea significantly. But Chelsea has maintained a low profile as far as the Modric case is concerned. It is quite possible that unlike last summer, Chelsea are playing this out in a quieter manner and a last minute shock bid to blow competition out of the water cannot be ruled out just yet. It is a position where Chelsea are well stocked and therefore can very much afford to wait until the final stages of the summer window. However, hopes are best kept at a minimum on this front.

THE LIKELY EXITS

Raul Meireles ai??i?? It is rumored that the tattooed Portuguese midfielder is a serious target for Napoli and is wanting out of Chelsea. However Chelsea are likely to weigh their options before depleting their settled midfield. Meireles on his part refused to be drawn into talks about Napoliai??i??s interest.

Could leave Chelsea

Daniel Sturridge ai??i?? Victor Mosesai??i?? capture could possibly trigger a flurry of activity at Chelsea. It could set the wheels in motion and the fans will hope for a chronology of events to transpire in this manner ai??i?? Moses In > Sturridge Out (Spurs) > Modric In > Meireles Out(Napoli). If the club still retains an interest in Luka Modric, there is every possibility that Daniel Sturridge could be offered to the North Londoners in a cash + swap deal. There is also interest in Sturridge from Liverpool.

Florent Malouda ai??i?? Seems like the French winger is certain to leave Chelsea this season after a disappointing final season at the club personally. Brazilai??i??s Vasco Da Gama seems to be the likely destination as the player is also married to a Brazilian.

FROM THE TWEET STREET/ITK

Disclaimer: Hereai??i??s a bunch of rumors that may just grow as market conditions change. Or maybe theyai??i??re born out of people putting two and two together. Believe what you will and donai??i??t shoot the messenger.

Last night there was talk of Chelsea having a meeting with Bastian Schweinsteigerai??i??s agent over the weekend. After all Roman Abramovich did visit the German camp during the Euros and spoke with Schweini. So is it just conjuncture? Or is the Russian billionaire making the initial moves before pulling off a coup? Either way, the Germans will be wary should this story develop.

Apparently Chelsea have made an informal inquiry about Adam Johnson too. And there are some murmurs about Matt Jarvis buying a house near Cobham. Remember Andre Schurrle? Everythingai??i??s gone very quiet on that front. Not sure if thatai??i??s a good or a bad thing.

Thatai??i??s all folks.var

    If FC Porto refuse 2 sell Hulk, den Chelsea shud sign Jovetic or Moses, Shweinsteiger wil also b a gud signin if Meireles nd Malouda leave.

  2. olumidedavid says:

    let 4 get about him atleast we have torres let leave him who is hulk

  3. jollyshow says:

    if fc porto did not sell hulk,chelsea should target vanpersie,jovetic,moses,maicon,and may be modric and shewensteiger,or c ronaldo if real madrid will sell him he will be a good signing…..and also thanks for the hazard,kevin and marin….

  4. Signing of Hulk, Modric, jovetic, moses and schweins will be a big signing for our Club and the door should be opened for meireles, malouda and sturidge. I wish our club, coach, players, staffs and fans throughout the globe to have a breakthrough and successful season.

    • Ben Fuller says:

      to hell with victor moses, he aint as good as people think. 6 goals last seaon jsut 6. even the out of form torres scored more than that.id rather hulk than moses. hell id rather clint dempsey that moses. oh wait id rather piazon and de bruyne playing in that position than moses. waste of 10 million it would be imo.3 mill sure why not then jsut stick him in resrves and hope he improves but 10 mill for a player in his last year of his deal and a player who has oly played in championship and at the bottem end of prem league has no value to the current champs league winners, i personally dont feel we need modric anymore. would rather a young holding midfielder to line up alongside ramieres/romeu. some1 like casemiro of sao paulo or yann m’villa of rennes.scwin would be good but very unlikely. would rather rondon than jovetic but if torres doesnt produce goods i think we chelsea fans would take anyone who scores us goals. perhaps we should move for RVP proven scorer and would really rub it in to arsenal

      • I support u,who is moses i prefer jovetic or rondo than him,even r.lukaku is beta than him if his giving chance 2 play.but 4 hulk is a gr8 player nd it will b a gud signing 4 us.lampard should go nd modric in why those deadwood like malouda,sturridge should go but not our tattooned midfielder.

  5. Is a nice Article, if porto has refused to sell Hulk let us buy Moses & Jovetic. 4 Modric, i do hope he sign for us bt there is doubt & i see him in Madrid shirt coz Daniel Levy & AVB ‘ll nt be willing 2 sell 2 us, unless otherwise. Chelsea shuld buy Bastian Schweinseiger’s if Modric opted 4 Madrid. For d RB i hope Lucasz Piszcek or Debuchy ‘ll be a gud buy intead of Maico @31yrs when we ‘re on d process of rebuiding. Raul Meireless, Malouda, sturridge coz of his selfish game & Ferira should be let go & cash on dem plz

  6. deno says:

    we only need hulk not modric he is over rated

  7. Cc says:

    I think torres/hulk/moura/hazard/schweinstagger-will win enough trophies for €helsea.

    • Ben Fuller says:

      lucas moura will not be leaving brazil until at least after the 2014 world cup and his preffered destination is real madrid. and i for one do not want a player who would rather be somewhere else and using chelsea as a stepping stone to madrid or barca

  8. Emilex 4rm cal says:

    If porto fc refuse 2 release hulk pls let go 4 jovetic or cavani be is 2 late 4 us

  9. Emem idem 4rm cal says:

    Pls we need hulk or no signin of striker becos is a gud replacement 4 our legend drogba

  10. I’m happy wit all d 5 chelsea targets if dey wil try all dey can 2 buy dem all, then let dem sell Maluda, Essien, Benayoun, Merrieles bcos dey ar nt d type of players chelsea need now, den let dem advise nd watch Sturridge 2 c if he can change 4rm his selfish play, den let dem send some youth players lik Lukaku nd ko 2 loan, Chelsea till my 6fit down

    • Ben Fuller says:

      sturridge wont chan ge his selfish play. he is all about himself what he can do and making himself look good. not to mention last season his public moan fest bout being played out of position. on that kind of money he should keep his dam mouth shut play where he is told or get lost. while im no proffesional i liked to play right wing/forward when i played with mates and for a local scout team when i was a young boy. if it ment starting they could have played me in goal for all i cared. danny needs to realise its bout the team and not about him. if he dont like it he can get lost and go to a team that arnt as good as chelsea were he can be guarenteed a start in position he wants

  11. Irey michael says:

    pls modric,,hulk n falcao will be great,,pls modric comes first,,up blues…

  12. Yea? Let sell Benayoun, mereles, ferera and we will buy likes of Hulk, maicon, moses and jovetic. I luv u all chelsea fans?

  13. Animashaun Zakariyya says:

    it will b gud if Chelsea can get Modric,moses,RVP since does not want 2 sign 4 arsenal.Maicon will not b gud optn 4 Chelsea,Chelsea shd also luk 4 replacements 4 terry cos his getting older, Alves of portugal will b a key optn 4 dat

  14. Obinna Ochiagha says:

    Hazard, mata and marin can give chelsea a better level of creativity than what modric has to offer, so we don’t need modric. Hulk is strong, pacy and tested- he can offer a level of replacement for Drogba and can also play frm the wings, so chelsea should buy him. Chelsea should get Cesar Azipilicueta for RFB, Moses as sturridge (selfish and not-a-team player) replacement cos he is a premiership proven talent that is strong, can play frm both wings and behind a striker and will still improve . Chelsea also needs A. Witsel as a central midfielder (cos he can give u a bit of Lampard and Essien) and finally wait for Lucas Moura or buy Jovetic. Players that should are kalou, bosingwa, fereira, malouda, sturridge, essien (cos of fitness), benayoun, drogba.

  15. Eche richard says:

    We dont need moses,hulk and miacon plus other full back defenders will do we dnt need moses

  16. Odesanmi taiwo says:

    i think we dnt need malouda, sturridge n modric….bt i bliv dat we need moses n hulk

  17. i m in luv wit dey blues.

  18. avi says:

    I love Chelsea n like manager,I think e manager should decide about the new player,in my openion I like to c Hulk on club..

  19. Folagbade says:

    Yeah,let’s forget about Hulk and let’s get Jovetic,maicon and then maybe modric,we might postpone the signing of Hulk till January if he proves stubborn now,by January he’ll be of a lower market value than this.Jovetic and Maicon should be our main signing and we must get them to the bridge

  20. Emmanson says:

    I would prefer modic in and essien out, no need of moses and then give the likes of hazard, marin, kelvin de bruyne, and piazon d chance to play. If porto isn’t relaesing hulk then why not raise bid for jovetic.

  21. Clement says:

    Whaoo i badly need hulk and modric at chelsea. We should bewear that mancity hgas good players and we need to strenghting our team. I want a chelsea that can outclass real madrid, barcelonia,mancity with a descent style of play, although i am not condeming defensive play cos it gave us our cup. Cheers to the blues, it runs in my blood

  22. chelsea must leave maicon is oldaged better chase for cavanni jovetic sweinsteiger hulk moura and even bid for neyma also give torres more gametime.give away selfish helpless sturidgeand malouda who has fased out already otherwise we gonna reach again to the finals of cups

  23. My follow fans stop stay abt buy anyplayer again if enegbani anana can no 9 tevez or who play like tevez 4get buy [df,mf] up blue
