Chelsea Transfer Manifesto: 2010/11, 2011/12
-
DEF: For backs we are obviously interested in Darijo Srna, who will probably come in on a free transfer next summer, and David Luiz (and Neven Subotic), for whom's signature we will compete with the usual suspects, Manchester City, Real Madrid etc. There have been a lot of rumours about Philippe Mexes signing from Roma, this would not necessarily be unwelcome given our current concerning lack of Centre backs however signing the more youthful players would be more desirable. Benfica's Maxi Pereira could be a useful addition.
-
We already have a reasonably strong contingent of young backs; Slobodan Rajkovic, Tomáš Kalas, Michael Mancienne, Jeffrey Bruma, Ryan Bertrand and Patrick van Anholt, who are either on loan or with the first team this year gaining some valuable experience. This is good but the question of how many are willing to wait for their transition into the first team (and how many are actually good enough for the first team) is one that will require good judgement by management. At present I'd only rate Bruma, van Anholt and Kalas as being able to make the transition into the first team, so cover will be required.

Juan Manuel Vargas and Fabio Coentrao need to be considered, Ashley is 30 in December and succession planning must occur, hopefully Yuri Zhirkov may see more time as a left mid in future, and a powerful attacking wingback is a must. Coentrao is being heavily linked to Liverpool, hopefully he either stays at Benfica at present or he signs and Liverpool fail to secure a European berth for next season. Vargas is at the floundering Fiorentina, however Man City and Real have both been previously interested in him so we'll have a fight on our hands to sign him. Gareth Bale is the complete wingback but will be horrendously overpriced, his signature will depend upon more than our wealthy benefactor, UCL success could help.

On the right Bosingwa and probable signing Darijo Srna, who will both be 29 by mid season next year will be useful, but again succession for maturing players must be considered. Dani Alves may be available as well. Gregory van Wiel could be an alternative for the future, too. What bother me about him is, that he plays lower-than-average under pressure, what the World Cup showed. Srna should be the main target on winter transfer period, a very strong player, whose contract expires soon.
-
MID: We may still need to stiffen up our defensive midfield but we should wait and see how our current combination of Mikel, Essien and Ramires works. Oriel Romeu, Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, Gueida Fofana, Kwadwo Asamoah and Anthony Annan now the best options. Influential Central midfielders Axel Witsel and Cristian Ledesma could be useful in Ballack type roles unless Bastian Schweinsteiger is available with Bastian an ideal signing.

There has to be some longer term plans for the right wing. We have Jacopo Sala as a right mid but we will want to add at least one right winger to the team. There’s the young Shaktar Donetsk pair of Alex Teixeira, 20 and Douglas Costa, 19. Teixeira was the star of the U 20 World Cup in Egypt in 2009, while Costa has been dubbed the next Ronaldinho. Shaktar playermaker Fernandinho may be another valuable acquisition. Another great prospect is Deportivo’s new signing Uruguayan winger Urreta, young, fast and very creative, everything we need. Ashley Young should also be considered given our need for English talent.
-
Next season when Cesc returns and Barca youngster Thaigo Alcantara is suddenly pushed to the outer. AZ's Rasmus Elm should also be considered.
-
Diego Perotti, Miralem Pjanic and Antoine Griezmann are all in play to back up Kakuta on the left once Malouda, now 30, moves on. Jacob Mellis isn't good enough for Chelsea and with Alan Dzagoev and Javier Pastore targets one of them may replace Mellis. Sporting Lisbon's star Zezinho should also be considered.
-
FWD: For future strikers, there are several options, Gervinho and Seydou Doumbia are all potential support strikers for a Chelsea after Anelka whom one of them could effectively replace. Doumbia’s move to CSKA moves him into the orbit of a club with which we enjoy good relations and also has Tomas Necid and Alan Dzagoev.
-
We need to come to a deal with Santos to seal up Neymar (and Paulo Henrique Ganso) for the future.
-
Romelu Lukaku is a must signing, but he needn’t necessarily join the team yet, a loan back to Anderlecht would be ideal.
-
Lacina Traore with his great height would make an ideal ‘super sub’ in the mold of Tore Andre Flo, tall and dangerous near goal.
-
Drogba will be hard to replace Lukaku will still be too young to fully take over Didier’s role when Drogba retires, Kalou will have to step up and another big name will be needed too, one of the younger hungrier trio of Pato or Sergio Aguero would be best.
-
We also have a few young forwards, Daniel Sturridge, Milan Lalkovic, who has a big future and Fabio Borini who also has great potential, but may not stay with Chelsea, hopefully Kakuta will though. Giorgi Chanturia is at Vitesse with Delac and Rajkovic, though unlike them he may be at Chelsea in the near future. Cedric Bakambu, France's young star should be considered as well. PSG's 17 year old star Jean-Christophe Bahebeck could be another bright prospect. Young former eastern bloc stars, Yevhen Konoplyanka and Jano Ananidze would also be a promising signings.
-
Some have also been pushing for an Asian star for a while, namely either Park Chu Young or Keisuke Honda, either would be a great signing not just for Merchandising in Asia, but they are good players.
