Chelsea eyeing shock raid on London rivals Tottenham

Sandro (Tottenham)Metro seem to have a claim that Tottenham Hotspur fans are not keen on at all here in the Football Transfer Tavern.

The publication have claimed that Chelsea are considering a shock swoop for Spurs’ fan favourite Sandro and we think that will go down like Steven Gerrard in a one-on-one situation with Demba Ba!

Jose Mourinho seems to be building his side up to be champions next season and after a first season back at the club without any success, it seems more vital than ever that the players he selects to join the club this summer are the right ones.

Sandro will cost around £12 million but we think that Daniel Levy and the Spurs board will try and play hard ball.

The Lilywhites sold Gareth Bale last term and certainly will not want to see any more of their top players leave no matter who is bidding for them.

To sell to a direct rival is also far from ideal but Jose Mourinho is believed to want Sandro as a potential alternative to Nemanja Matic, acting as a back-up in the middle of the park.

One of our punters points out that at least we know what Sandro can do and it should not be too difficult for him to acclimatise to life on the other side of London. He might not even need to move house!

Chelsea fans. Do you think your club needs a player like Sandro or is this just paper talk in silly season? Let us know your thoughts below.
