How Chelsea will Line up with €41million Superstar

Arda Turan TurkeyChelsea already have few of the best attacking midfielders in their squad such as the likes of Hazard, Oscar and Willian etc.

Still, the Blues are linked with more star playmakers and the latest name in the lime light is Turkish international Arda Turan.

The Atletico Madrid star is heavily linked with a move to Premier League and Chelsea could be his possible destination. If he does join Blues, where will he play in Jose Mourinho’s system.

Arda is a versatile superstar, has played as a winger as well as a central attacking midfielder. Moreover, he has that not giving up tireless attitude that Mourinho prefers.

Jose always looks for a player who could also track back and help in defending and Willian and Hazard perform that role brilliantly. Oscar on the other hand is not effective in that department. Also, the Brazilian did not have the best of seasons and was dropped by Dunga for the Copa America squad as well.

Expect the €41m rated star to take Oscar’s place in the starting XI if he joins. Here is how Chelsea will line up with Arda Turan.

    What a poorly researched report! Oscar was NOT ‘dropped by Dunga for the Copa America squad’. He was injured in training toward the end of last season and was deemed unfit to make the South American finals. Dunga personally checked on Oscar’s fitness and availability after a medical by the Brazilian national team. He is naturally the best defensive midfielder out of Hazard and Willian and was mainly played in that position in Brazil for both his formative clubs (Sao Paulo and Internacional) before joining Chelsea in 2012. He also played as a defensive midfield player for the Brazilian under 20’s and under 23 sides. He is singularly Chelsea’s best man marker and has terrific stats for successful interceptions and tackling. IMHO his end of season injury was a blessing in disguise for Chelsea as it has forced the player to have his first summer break without football in 5 years. The guy is still only 23 remember. He looked jaded in some games after Xmas last season due (I believe) to his need for a break from football. He is a shoe in for the Brazilian national team and when not playing in World Cups, Confederation Cups is playing exhibition games for his National side constantly. Having a ‘rested’ Oscar back at the start of next season will be l.ike Chelsea having signed a new player. Chelsea nearly brought Arda Turan 4 summers ago as he was recommended to the club by Guus Hiddinck. Unfortunately that deal didn’t come off and Gallatasari subsequently sold the player to Athletico. Turan is a wonderful player and the ‘real’ story here is how very well he played (at Athletico) with Radamal Falcao. They had a somewhat telepathic understanding and anyone who saw them tear Chelsea’s defence apart in Monaco a few seasons ago in the Champions Cup in Monaco will understand. Some sports writers tend to forget the sheer number of competitive games successful top four teams now have to play. With injuries, suspensions and loss of form it is necessary if not essential to have cover in all positions so as not to weaken the team. Both Abramovich and Mourinho will want to win the title again this season and will also be looking for Chelsea to at least reach the CL finals. There is plenty of space in Chelsea’s first team squad for both Oscar AND Turan in what should be another very exciting and successful season for Chelsea FC. KTBFFH. .

    Mou should go for Griezmann, Turan, Witzel to build a terrific attack with Hazard and Willian and also a briliant backup for Coutious, by Gods grace we will retain the League trophy and go far in CL. Please leave Falcao out of the team, allow sleeping dog to lie.
