With less than two weeks until the season starts Andre Villas-Boas is keen to bring in new players to strengthen his squad.
With Chelsea looking to bring in replacements, it looks like Yuri Zhirkov is set to leave Stamford Bridge.
With the tactical yet somewhat disappointing number of signings for Chelsea this season, I can’t see many more than one new addition to the Blues’ squad.
Blues’ owner Roman Abramovich has given the Chelsea management the green light to make an improved offer of around £40m to Spurs for Luka Modric after Javier Pastore opted for Paris Saint-Germain.
It is no secret that Andre Villas-Boas is keen to add a creative player to the squad, and having failed to bring in Argentine Javier Patore he could move for Brazilian star Kaka.
Zamparini told ‘Radio Radio’ this morning that Palermo had agreed a fee of €43 million with PSG for the transfer of Pastore, this means the Argentine simply has to agree personal terms with the French club and he will join them.
