Chelsea prepare moves for Benfica duo Garcia and Oliveira

Away from the hubbub of Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final second-leg with Barcelona on Tuesday, the Blues are reported by the Daily Mail to be lining up transfers for Benfica pair Javi Garcia and Nelson Oliveira.



Midfielder Garcia played against Chelsea in both of the Champions League quarter-finals between the sides, while striker Oliveira was an unused substitute as Roberto Di Matteo oversaw a 3-1 aggregate victory, winning 1-0 in Portugal and 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, with Garcia getting Benfica’s goal in the away leg.


Garcia, 25, is a product of Real Madrid’s youth system and made more than 20 appearances for the Spanish giants in his time at the club. Garcia has also played for Osasuna before joining Benfica in 2009. The Mail says a figure of £17m is as much as Chelsea are prepared to offer for the player, who can also slot in to central defence, while Benfica are holding out for closer to £25m.


Oliveira is a 20-year-old striker who has made only a handful of appearances for Benfica but has reportedly caught the eye of the Chelsea scouts. Oliveira also made his senior Portugal debut earlier this season.

it's very important to sign the duo,so that it will create more creativities of goal scoring.

I like Garcia bcos he is a fighter. He is very aggressive. But the other dude is not so exceptional. We need players like Falcao,Kagawa,Hazard, n Moura to Chelsea. They play with their hearts and are all aggressive on the ball. Hope we sign at least 3 of them. Kagawa is my favourite.
