After seeing Giannelli Imbula star in Porto’s 2-1 victory over the Blues on Tuesday, they’re delighted with claims of ‘constant contact’ between the club and the talented midfielder’s agent.
23-year-old Imbula sealed a move away from Marseille in the summer, moving to the Portuguese giants, but has struggled to settle into his new surroundings- which led to reports from L’Equipe that Chelsea remain in contact with Imbula’s father, who also acts as his agent.
Sinking a few pints in the corner, Blues fans are wondering whether their season would have panned out differently if they had secure the highly-rated midfielder over the summer.
It’s likely Porto would demand a recoup of the £14.7m they paid for Imbula over the summer though, with the Portuguese outfit notoriously difficult to negotiate with.
Chelsea fans, is this man the ideal January signing? Let us know in the comments below!
