Brazilian open to Chelsea switch

In the wake of mounting speculation, Robinho has told Real Madrid that he wishes to leave the club.
The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a summer switch to Chelsea and is thought to have told Real's sporting director, Predrag Mijatovic, that he wishes to join the Blues.
The playmaker is understood to have held discussions with Mijatovic last week, during which he revealed his desire to depart the Santiago Bernabeu.
"I have the desire to leave Real Madrid," he told Marca.
His agent, Wagner Ribeiro, is reported to have already entered into negotiations with Chelsea in regards to a transfer to Stamford Bridge, although Robinho is yet to meet with Blues officials.
There are also rumours emanating out of Spain that Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon has made contact with Real stipulating the club's willingness to open discussions over a possible deal.
The Primera Liga champions are thought to want around 40million euros (£31.7m) for the 24-year-old, but there are no indications as yet as to how much Chelsea are willing to pay for his services.

Will one of them eventually come to Chelsea ? I will be delighted if any of them come to Chelsea all 4 of them are top quality players.

We All Want Frank To Stay - The Sun

JOHN TERRY is confident Frank Lampard's future will be sorted during Chelsea's pre-season tour of China.
Lampard is currently torn between a new contract offer from the Blues and a move to be reunited with Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.
But Blues skipper Terry remains hopeful the midfielder will decide to stay at Stamford Bridge.
He said: "The players and fans all want Frank to stay.
"We are here to focus on football but hopefully while he's here the club can sort it out.
"It's down to Frank and the club."
Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon insists Lampard will definitely start the season with the Londoners.
He only has 12 months remaining on his current deal but Kenyon does not believe the speculation will affect the England international's commitment.
He said: "It's an important statement that Frank is on tour with us.
"We have always said we want him to stay and we are confident he will.
"He is here and is training exceptionally hard for us. He is a big professional and we accept he is a key member of the team.
"No one is stalling over this, Frank is not stalling and we are not stalling."

Lampard and Drogba must stay ! for the case of Pizzaro and Boulahrouz I don't mind that they leave as Pizzaro is not a quality player and The Cannibal is too aggressive always getting red card and poor positioning sense and not good at supporting attack even though he did totally lock out Ronaldinho in a Champions league first game at Stamford Bridge.Malouda, SWP and Belletti I think Malouda should stay he is quite a stable and reliable winger that score goals from time to time and Belletti should stay too he always pop up with goals and I rather him to be at Right-back then unreliable Paulo Ferreria.SWP should leave if there is a good offer for him.
