Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

In today's Sun. Quotes Arnesen but it is a quote that is very generalistic and not necessarily about these players.............

CHELSEA are keeping tabs on Benfica's talented trio Angel Di Maria, David Luiz and Fabio Coentrao.

Sporting Director Frank Arnesen watched Benfica's 4-0 Europa League romp against Vorskla Poltava.

Argentine midfielder Di Maria, 21, has recently broken into his national side.

Brazilian defender Luiz, 22, and Portuguese winger Coentrao, 21, have also caught the eye.

Arnesen said: "We are always looking for good players."

The scouting source, IMScouting, says this on the players.

Angel Di Maria is a 21-year-old left-winger who famously scored Argentina’s winning goal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He was signed during the 2007/2008 season for eight million euros from Rosario Central and has been a long term target for Jose Mourinho whilst at Inter Milan.

David Luiz is a 22-year-old Brazilian central defender described by scouts in Portugal as one of the most promising in the world. His career has however been littered with injury and Luiz will likely need to complete a full season before a bigger European club makes their move.

Fabio Coentrao is a 21-year-old forward who has already played for five different teams in his short career. The tricky attacker is a very technical player known for his ability to work very hard during games.

Somehow I only think it was Di Maria who we were looking at, and The Sun decided to just throw in the names of people who happen to be good on Football Manager, to hedge their bets.
