Bayern Munich identities believe Chelsea have pulled off a huge coup in signing Peru international striker Claudio Pizarro on a free transfer.

His team-mate at Bayern Munich, Mehmet Scholl, called him "the best player in the Bundesliga, simply complete", while his former coach at Bayern, Felix Magath, said: "He has everything a world-class striker needs. He is a great finisher, he can dribble and also come up with a great pass. His qualities also make him a very good attacking midfielder. If he avoids injuries he is one of the best strikers in the world."
