I’m probably not the only one who is concerned that it could very well be a case of no smoke without fire when it comes to all the speculation relating to Chelsea’s, apparent, wrongdoing when it comes to signing youngsters.
I get the impression that the authorities are looking to come down hard on any clubs found guilty of breaking the rules.
If Chelsea found guilty of the charges, and as reported by Vital Chelsea last week, Click Here, it’s highly likely that Chelsea will be given a transfer ban but that, as has been the cases with other clubs, the ban won’t start until a transfer window has passed, which allows Chelsea, as other clubs have done in the past, to bring in sufficient new signings to get them through the crisis period.
Today, speculation in the media source, the Daily Mail, are suggesting that Chelsea, among a host of other clubs, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur named, are in the race to sign the Brazilian Bruno Roberto.
At just 18-years-of-age, Roberto, an attacking midfielder, on the books of Atletico Mineiro, has established himself as a talent of the future.
Chelsea, with their contingent of Brazilian’s, might be able to persuade this talented youngster that Stamford Bridge is the place to be, but if there is a transfer ban looming, they may have to act pretty sharpish.
