The Brazilian international has failed to show his true potential at the Bernabeu since moving from Santos back in 2005. He has made over 130 appearances for the La Liga giants, scoring just over 30 goals in the process. Scolari has previously worked with the 24-year old whilst coach of the Brazil national team and he is said to be keen to restart the relationship at Chelsea.

It is likely that Chelsea will have to bid at least £20 million for the Samba star, a figure that Chelsea could easily meet. It has been rumoured that Scolari may have as much as £100 million to spend and his first signing may yet bet Robinho, although others have also been linked with a move to the London club.
