Brazilian wonderkid Neymar has started the ball rolling on a move to Chelsea by revealing his desire to play in London, the Guardian report.
The 19-year-old, on the back of his scintillating display against Scotland on Sunday, has offered the Stamford Bridge side real hope of signing him following his latest comments.
Chelsea have made little secret of their admiration for the Santos striker and had £22m quoted to them when they first enquired and Neymar was flattered when he heard the top clubs in Europe were interested in his services.
“It is a dream which will come true but I don’t know when. It is up to Santos to decide. But here in London I could even walk in peace in the streets.”
David Luiz backs Torres.
David Luiz has leapt to the defence of Fernando Torres by saying when he breaks his duck he will score ‘loads of goals’ for his new club, Sky Sports report.
The Spanish striker has been somewhat overshadowed by the Brazilian defender, since they both arrived in January, but the latter is confident as soon as El Nino scores his first more will follow.
“It’s not just because he’s Fernando Torres but, for any forward, it’s really hard when they don’t score. I am sure that as soon as the first goal comes, he will score loads of them because he is a very special player.”
Luiz himself has had no such problems having probably scored his allocation for the season after recently scoring two goals against both the Manchester clubs.
Chelsea want to re-unite new striker Fernando Torres with his old Atletico Madrid partner Sergio Aguero, according to TalkSport online.
Rumours emanating from Spanish paper AS also suggest that Nicolas Anelka could be used as a potential lightweight, in any deal to bring the powerful Argentine to west London.
Torres and Aguero played together in the former’s last season in Madrid, before he left for Liverpool, and Blues owner Roman Abramovich hopes Aguero can kick-start Torres stuttering Chelsea career.
