Van Persie for Chelsea?

Media outlets have been awash all summer with talk of Chelsea wanting another striker. Despite spending lavishly on creative talent, the concern remains that the club haven’t adequately replaced the departed Anelka and Didier Drogba. With persistent questions about the long term career of Fernando Torres at Chelsea, and Daniel Sturridge still finding his way, Chelsea may well be light in that area. Hulk, and latterly Cavani, have provided the meat of the summer striker speculation for The Blues.

But it has been surprising for some that Robin Van Persie hasn’t been linked more strongly with the club. Chelsea have never been scared to invest in a older player before. The formula seems to be that, if he is good enough, his age is of secondary importance. They were somewhat stung by Shevchenko, and Torres hasn’t fired yet, but it still seems a little strange that Roman Abramovich hasn’t at least made enquiries about the the deadly Dutchman.

Some might argue that Arsenal would be adamant about not selling to their London rivals but their rivalry with Manchester United, Van Persie’s destination apparent, is at least as fierce.

£20m is ostensibly a lot to pay for a 29 year old and Chelsea do seem to be planning for the future. But with such a potential vacuum created by the high prolfie departures, wouldn’t Van Persie offer the perfect 2-3 year solution?

So what price a cheeky late bid by the club? Whereas United seem to drag out their transfers, Chelsea are good at spending the few extra million to get deals done quickly and comparatively quietly. Although it seems unlikely at this stage, you wouldn’t want to entirely rule out the possibility of a last minute Chelsea move for Van Persie.

    We need someone like Hulk for the long term. He’s strong on the right, got speed and he’s 25-26 years old. He can also play Centre forward as a alternative. Buying him will be ideal for Chelsea’s future.
