Asier Del Horno returns to Spain

Chelsea left back Asier Del Horno has signed for Valencia for a reported fee of 7 and a half million Euros.Del Horno,who was hailed as the next big thing when Mourinho brought him from Bilbao struggled to really make an impression and is best remembered by many football fans as the man who was red carded when he fouled Lionel Messi in a Champions League knockout game at Stamford bridge between Chelsea and Barcelona.

Del Horno’s position will most likely be taken by Wayne Bridge who spent the season at Craven Cottage on loan due to Horno’s arrival. But in keeping with Jose Mourinho’s policy of having two players for each position,Chelsea are likely to sign another left back,with Real Madrid veteran Roberto Carlos looking the most possible target.
