Deadline Day Rumblings: Chelsea may submit another bid for Lucas Moura

New, comments

This is one of those rumors that just isn't going to go away until Moura moves to Europe. According to Rory Smith (and several other "sources"), Chelsea FC are expected to submit another bid for 19 year old Brazilian Lucas Moura before the window shuts this evening:

At this point I'm far less concerned about Chelsea reaching an agreement with Sao Paulo and more concerned with coming to terms with the player in question. We've been taking our time with player negotiations lately to ensure we don't overpay (too much) in terms of wages. With Moura owning a 20% stake in his economic rights and not yet possessing a work permit, I just can't see a quick conclusion to this one forthcoming. Still, it's good to see we're being linked so heavily with both he and Eden Hazard. Hopefully we'll have more on this as the day progresses.
