Latest Transfer Talk | Makelele to Leave?

Freed from Portugal national team coaching duties prematurely, Scolari is ready to take over Chelsea on 1st July and already has plans to make large changes in the squad, reports SkySports. "It will be a revolution especially in terms of mentality," Scolari told the News of the World.If the reports are right, it could be bad news for the likes of Malouda and Pizzaro. Speculation continues over the departure of Lampard and Drogba as well as the arrival of Ronnie and Deco.

"My choices are purely tactical ones. I pick the players I think are the best," added Scolari. "I only give explanations about players I pick, never about others. These words suggest changes at the Bridge, and also that no player is safe. Maybe Scolari is already working on his transfer targets with the full backing and funding of Roman Abramovich.

Meanwhile Barcelona has repeatedly said that Deco is no longer in their future plans, while the player wants more time figure out what is best for him. Mourinho and Scolari are reportedly interested in the Portuguese star. The arrival of Deco will depend on the fate of Lampard. There are reports that Frank is offered a contract for 2 years while he wants one for 4 years. Letting Lampard go will be a big, big mistake. No player is irreplaceable, but then Lampard is not just another player for us. Lampard is expected to meet Peter Kenyon, Chelsea's chief executive, for contract talks next week, while he will also hold talks with manager Scolari next month.

Meanwhile Makelele is associated with a surprise move to Paris Saint Germain. This is the second time PSG are trying to lure away the veteran French midfielder, who recently announced his international retirement after France crashed out of Euro. However, Makelele's agent Jamie Ladjemi, ruled out the possibility.With 18 starts last season for us and after being one of the most consistent performers, its unlikely that he would move. He fitness might be declining but he's still vital to the squad and also we need his services for one more year so that Mikel is able to take over smoothly.

Gilberto Madaíl, the president of the Portuguese football federation, accused the club of behaving incorrectly in their recruitment of Luiz Felipe Scolari. The president is making such arguments to hide his disappointment after they had a surprise exit from Euro. Chelsea responded with a forceful statement defending their conduct. “We did everything above board and correctly. It was the appropriate time for both parties to announce and had been agreed in advance. The Portugal football federation were informed.” Better luck in next Euro Mr.Madaíl.
