Brazilian star is 6/4 to become a Chelsea player by September 1st

| 04.04.2011

Former Brazilian and Barcelona star Rivaldo believes the futures of three of Brazil’s young superstars could lie in the Premier League.

The 38-year-old is seeing out his playing career with Sao Paulo in Brazil’s Serie A and he believes the likes of Neymar, Lucas and Ganso would not only love to play in the Premier League, but they would fit right in.

“Three of the best young Brazilians are interested in going to the Premier League,” said Rivaldo.

“England would suit Neymar, Lucas and Ganso and they would love to move.”

Which is great news for Chelsea fans and the Stamford Bridge faithful will be pleased to know Neymar is as short as 6/4 to sign for Chelsea before September 1st 2011.

Neymar’s talent has never been in doubt but it was his performance in the friendly between Brazil and Scotland that brought him to the forefront of English fans minds, and while the 19-year-old is attracting interest from Spain and Italy, Chelsea seem his most likely club.

A £20 stake on Neymar becoming a Chelsea player could return £50 and new customers to Ladbrokes.com are eligible for a free bet. by signing up here.

If the 6/4 doesn’t interest you, then maybe the 2/1 for Ruud van Nistelrooy to become a Blackburn player does after the Dutch international confirmed his intention to leave Hamburg when his contract runs out at the end of the season.

Van Nistelrooy will turn 35 in July and so a potential return to Manchester United looks unlikely despite van Nisterlrooy’s insinuations, and should Blackburn stay up – they are 2/1 to be relegated – the new owners have the wealth to fund the Dutchman’s wages.

This summer will be a busy transfer period, especially after Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed he is after three targets, and Ladbrokes.com offers punters the chance to find some value in the rumours.

A £20 stake on van Nistelrooy joining Blackburn would return £60. New customers can sign up here to get £60 in free bets.
