Chelsea full-back's agent would discuss move with player

Juliano Belletti's agent has hinted that the Chelsea full-back would consider a move to Benfica. Recent reports have suggested Portuguese side Benfica are readying a loan offer for the Brazilian, who signed for Chelsea from Barcelona last summer. Belletti faces strong competition from Paulo Ferreira and summer signing Jose Bosingwa for a starting role at Stamford Bridge next season. The 32-year-old has yet to receive an approach from Benfica, but his agent and brother Sandro Belletti has admitted he would talk over a potential switch if an offer was received. He told Radio Renascenca: "So far there has been no contact. If we receive any contact from Benfica then I will speak with Juliano to see if he is interested. "Benfica are a big club in Europe. We will wait and see if Juliano is in manager Luiz Felipe Scolari's plans."
