Chelsea agree deal for future Brazilian superstar


Chelsea have agreed a deal for future Brazilian superstar Taison from Metalist Kharkiv.

The Brazilian recently confirmed he was in talks with the West London side after they agreed a fee with the Ukrainian club thought to be in the region of £11 million.

Taison has been playing his football in Ukraine for the last two years after he left his home land, Brazil, in 2010. He played 136 games for the Brazilian club, Internacional, with 20 goals before a more prolific spell at Metalist Kharkiv; 13 goals in 57 games.

He becomes the latest Brazilian sensation to join the Champions League holders following the arrival of Oscar last summer. Chelsea have also been long term hunters of another Brazilian wonder kid, Neymar.

Taison is one of the most versatile attacking players that Chelsea could have targeted as he can play down either wing, in a central attacking position or up front as a main striker. It is a massive giveaway sign that Chelsea are looking to maintain their style of flooding their attack with small play makers who are all extremely talented on the ball.

This is a move which has been criticised due to the physical nature of the Premier League but a tactic which more and more top European sides are mirroring, based on the successful Barcelona side of the last few years.

Despite his impressive career records at Internacional and Metalist Kharkiv, he is yet to make his debut for the Brazilian national team.

If the fee being mentioned in latest reports is accurate then it will mean Metalist are set to make a profit of £9 million plus add-ons having originally signed the player for just under €3 million (roughly £2.43 million).

If the deal goes through without a hitch then Taison will become Chelsea’s second January signing following Demba Ba from Newcastle United.

  1. Good news!this is the reason why we have
    to off load the ’30plus’ players so that we enjoy the services of those new players.

  2. Chelsea have 25 young and talénted players on loan why waste money bring back some of them kelvin de bryne and josh macheren has been in best form why not give them a chance instead of going for another talent when you have them all.

  3. Nice move, lets let fereira, hilario, malouda go now, lampard, terry, mikel,torres n cech go in the summer, and bring in falcao, isco, hamsik, walcott,courtois n cavani to play blue futball.

    • You are a foolish human being how would say that cech lampard mikel terry fererra go who will control the team or dont you know that expilience matters.

  4. Well, it wil b a good addition to the squad. Freda Taison, feel free! u wil be welcomed with open arms.

  5. Nice signing, but players tht ar supose to leave are fereira, malouda, torres. Pls ahsley cole is still in form, lampart nt left out. The worst player in chelsea now is torres. Let throw him out

  6. Whenever i see torres in de squad i know tht we are playing 10 against 11 players. Torres is the confusion in the team not coaches.

  7. Some chelsea fans dnt knw dat football is a very big business game,clubs dat take our players on loan pay money on them and we av 2 do that cos if those players stayed they wont see first team action regularly.calling them bck in preseason to prove themselves. #chelseafc has only one problem the board!!

  8. Chelsea should let lampard stay and A cole so dat our chelsea team will be strong enough lyk man u i will chelsea to bring cortoirs so when cech have injury we will have hope i dnt lyk turnbul he is selfish in a big match so chelsea should buy dat brazilian talented boy he will help chelsea when lampard live chelsea and chelsea should go and by this players dat i am going to call nw Facalw isco cavani higuian benzema felani taison remy dats all so dat our chelsea team will stand but we have to sell lampard A cole fereira malouda and torres

  9. Nice comment nt beign old but the quality he brings. Other clubs like man.u, bacelona, wht makes them strong is their old star playes.

  10. Chelsea is in d right direction, bt experience must nt b left out. Lampard, A cole, Terry should stay. Torres, ferrira, malouda, shld go. Up blues.
