Chelsea and Man Utd receive strong encouragement ahead of potential transfer

Our Manchester United and Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are gearing up for what’s going to be a cracking game between their sides this weekend.

The two have enjoyed a real growth in their rivalry over the past decade or so as Chelsea’s financial power shot them into prominence alongside the likes of United.

They’ve been going hammer and tong ever since, then, and with Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte seemingly in a pretty bubbling rivalry, things could get tasty come kick-off at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, off of the pitch, the pair are also likely to be involved in battles for transfers with the latest possibly going to be young Celta Vigo star, Theo Bongonda.

The talented Belgian has been quoted recently – via The Daily Star – in saying that he would like a move to one of the Premier League clubs or Atletico Madrid.

He said:

“If Chelsea, Manchester United or Atletico Madrid call me in the near future I should be ready to make the step up to join them.”

The 21-year-old knows what he wants, then, and it remains to be seen if the pair of Premier League sides decide to act on these comments.

Thoughts, United and Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
