After being released by Chelsea yesterday, Brazilian defender Juliano Belletti has reportedly already received an offer to join Ligue 1 champions Olympique de Marseille.

According to La Provence, L’OM are eager to aquire the 33-year-old utility man as a replacement for their ‘troublesome’ incumbent right-back Laurent Bonnart.

For some reason, I reckon Belletti’s got ‘Fulham’ written all over him.

    Newcastle? we need a replacement for Simpson like.

  2. Chris says:

    @John: Possibly so.

    I can see him getting a fair few offers from other Prem sides.

    He can still do a more-than-decent job in the holding role, as he’s shown in brief glimpses for Chelsea this season.

    I’m not sure a multi-millionaire footballer recieving offers of lucrative contracts can be described as a “lifeline”.
