Porto star Benni McCarthy is in line for a move to Chelsea this summer. It is understood the South African will be drafted in by Blues coach Jose Mourinho over the coming months after being identified as a prime target. The 27-year-old has again hit double figures for Porto this season and that included two goals against Chelsea - one in each of their UEFA Champions League clashes with Porto earlier in the campaign. Mourinho knows McCarthy well from his time at Porto and he is now ready to bring him to England.

Rest of story...

hehe.. to be honest. i thought they would buy a bigger name, am sure they could.

but Mourinho knows the player and will know if he can cut it in the Premiership. quite a skillfull player, from a south african country and usually they are good at technique etc.

not a huge price for him either, i wonder if Porto wont to lose him as they lost a few other players the other day, Maniche and Constinha.

i wouldnt have thought this guy does the grafting that players need in the Prem though

I'm suprised Chelski are interested, I thought he would be coming to the Prem but not with them.

He is set-up for the Prem, strong, quick, good in the air and has an eye for goal.
