Chelsea wants Croatias Defender, Josip Simunic on their team for 9 million dollars! This is according to www.vecernji-list.hr and www.eurosport.com
______________THIS IS WHAT EUROSPORT.COM SAID_________________
In an interview with the Croatian newspaper Vecernji List, Simunic, 28, said he thinks Chelsea will make an offer for him during the transfer window, but that any decision on his future will be up to hi current club Hertha Berlin.
Simunic said: “I know of Chelsea’s interest in me, but that’s all I can say. Hertha will have the last word on this matter.
“I could travel to England if they accept the price Chelsea are offering.”
Simunic, the man famously booked three timed by referee Graham Poll during Croatia’s World Cup group game with Australia last summer, joined Hertha in 2000, and would reportedly not move for less than £6 million (8.9 million euros).
Chelsea, who have no available centre-backs for their League Cup game against Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday, are also said to be chasing Bolton’s Israeli defender Tal Ben Haim, Manchester City’s Micah Richards and PSV’s Carlos Salcido.
Croatia this year went through a big change, many teams want Croatian players on their teams. I guess croatia is inn right now.
