From Brazil: Chelsea close in on signing, personal agreement 'well forwarded'
After the arrivals of Willy Caballero and Antony Rudiger, Chelsea want to make Danilo their third signing of the summer transfer window.
The freakish legal wrangle dates from 2011 when Mr Slater was on a photographic shoot on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.

PETA's initial complaint referred only to the relationship between Engelhardt and Naruto and PETA did not allege any relationship with the monkey.

Andrew J. Dhuey, representing Slater, said PETA should be required to pay the photographer's legal fees to defend himself. He quipped after the hearing that Naruto made a tactical mistake by not appearing in court.
