It has been revealed today that young Chelsea striker Franco Di Santo may well be joining Blackburn Rovers on a year long loan deal.
Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has first refusal on Di Santo.
The Russian backed club are prepared to let the 6ft 4in Argentinean go on a one-year loan to get Premier League experience.
Chelsea signed Di Santo, a member of the Argentina under-20 side, from Chilean side Audax Italiano a year ago, ironically, the same side that our own fallen Chilean hero, Carlos Kickaball (Villanueva) was loaned from.
Allardyce hopes Di Santo is a done deal but Chelsea's new boss Carlo Ancelotti wants to see him train and play before deciding if he can go on loan, so the move is on ice until mid-July.
It is also rumoured that Ince was an admirer of Di Santo and after he had signed for Chelsea last summer, as he knew Di Santo's agent, asked if he could find someone similar to Franco and recommended Carlos.
There are numerous clubs over the European continent interested in Di Santo with Spanish side Espanyol interested and allegedly, his agents have also been having discussions with Everton and Middlesbrough but Rovers have the first refusal.
Blackburn have a top level agreement with the Chelsea hierarchy that any loan deal will be with them. Rovers have had to agree with Chelsea that di Santo WILL play.
The player will go where he is told apparently. His agent is employed by Chelsea, so there is no great problem there.
It is worth noting also that Franco Di Santo is in the Chelsea first team squad and has played under Hiddink and Scolari.
In that superstar team he has been handed the number 9 shirt and has already received rave reviews from people within the camp.
Bom, back with a bang, catch me while you can!
