ESPN have managed to get Chelsea fans’ League Cup final weekend off to a poor start here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim the Blues will miss out on Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets, who has penned a new deal with Barcelona.
The midfielder may not be everyone’s cup of tea personally, but there is no doubt he is one of the finest players in the world when it comes to his role in the side and we would have liked to see him try his hand at a season or two in England.
As one of our punters notes, that did look likely at one point, with the Spaniard claiming he would love to play in the Premier League – only to go and put pen to paper on his long term new deal with the club a few days later.
Our landlord quips that those comments probably negotiated another few thousand a week onto his wages – and we are pretty sure Busquets had no intention of leaving his current club.
Chelsea fans. Did you ever think you actually were in with a chance of landing the midfielder? Did you even need him? Let us know your thoughts below.
