Too expensive but might be a good buy.

Is the future cb for brazil, still has to improve

karim3769d ago

He's only 22...Has a lot of years ahead of him.

Anyone knows what happened to Jardel?
He was one of the greatest goalscorers...

karim3768d ago

Jardel is a defender who joined Benefica but I think you meant someone else.

Maradona3768d ago

i meant the good old goal scorer who played in porto. He just disapeared?

KingsCross3769d ago

I would bought him now. He is extreamly talented. Not that I follow portoguese football that much, but David Luiz seams to have a bright future- remember besides from being extreamly talented, he is young- and a man they can still shape.

This saga has been going on a long time, even if he comes in Jan. he can't play in Champions League.

True. I would stay in Benfica. Better country to live in than rainy London... And awful Chelsea:)

You're over-biased so your opinion doesn't make sense because even IF I was a Utd fan I would have accepted an offer from Chelsea and you would too.

He would do well for Chelsea still young but already one of world s best the problem is English weather which had proved problematic for southern players
