Brazilian international defender Dante admits Chelsea is his dream club

Vfl Wolfsburg fans with flags

The Wolfsburg defender would like to play at Stamford Bridge.

There is no doubt that times are tough at Chelsea right now.

The Blues are failing miserably in their attempt to retain their Premier League title and defeat against Stoke City yesterday was yet another embarrassing moment.

The performances of their defenders has been heavily scrutinised in that time. John Terry seems to be coming to the end of his dominance, Gary Cahill has been inconsistent whilst Kurt Zouma is still young and prone to the odd mistake.

Well a top option has now admitted that he would like to play for the club. Former Bayern Munich man Dante joined VfL Wolfsburg in the summer but in a question and answer session with FIFA.com on Twitter the Brazilian international, who has 13 caps for Selecao, admitted that Chelsea were his dream club:

Of course he would have plenty of friends at the club - with Oscar, Willian and Ramires all international team-mates.

However he is not exactly known for his assured performances at the back.

But it just goes to show that, despite their current issues, Chelsea still have an allure for the big names.
