He would be a great buy for Chelsea as he would add the much needed pace to the team and add more creativity

What happened to Arsenal signing Mata? Don't tell me that £23 million is too much for Wenger's tastes.

good buy. Not a good thing for Spanish football. Its only Barca and Real who manage to keep their players.

Same everywhere Sokrates, same everywhere. Hell, I can recall Chelsea and Real also having to sell players(to each other oddly enough) when they didn't want to and with Valencia's troubled finances is it any shocjk a player mooted to be leaving all summer is doing so?

Whatever, I just think there's always been Real and Barca and then everyone else in Spain and it's only going to change(maybe Malaga? IDK just how wealthy their regime really is)when Spain gets clubs with the kind of backing Chelsea and now City have breaking the monopolies of the past.
