Chelsea close in on deal for world-class striker, forward wants the deal to go through

Zlatan IbrahimovicChelsea fans are looking up towards the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear the latest claim from Metro, who seem to think that the Blues are about to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Now as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger, we think that the player will always be linked with Jose Mourinho given how well the pair get along, and as our landlord quite rightly quips, it is now silly season for the media so we expect to see some outlandish rumours from time to time.

Chelsea are looking for a new forward but we think that paying Ibra over £200k per week will be something Jose Mourinho will seriously have to think about, with FFP a major concern, not to mention the harmony of the squad.

Chelsea fans. Is this a deal that can actually come off or do you think this is just more paper talk ahead of a long summer for the press? Let us know your thoughts below.
