Dinamo Zagreb manager Zlatko Kranjcar has revealed that 33-year-old goalkeeper Eduardo is on the verge of a surprise move to Chelsea.
The Blues currently boast Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic as their first choice and back-up stoppers, but with the Bosnian ace having barely featured for the London club since his move to Stamford Bridge from Stoke a year ago there have been rumours surrounding his future.
And it seems that Chelsea are closing in on a replacement for him in the shape of Eduardo.
The 34-cap Portugal international helped Dinamo to their 11th Croatian league title on the spin last season, and speaking to the press (via 24 Sata) his manager, Kranjcar, revealed that it’s likely he will not be around as they aim for a dozen in a row, with an “amazing opportunity” at Chelsea open to him:
“Eduardo has been given an amazing opportunity to leave for a big club like Chelsea. With his arrival we gained security in our team, since my time in the club he has defended his goal very well. Even impressive.
“But the situation is that he is leaving, may he have all the good luck in the big club.”
Eduardo has travelled across Europe during his career, playing in his homeland, Italy, Turkey and Croatia, winning numerous honours along the way.
