Premier League outfit Chelsea have discussed a deal with Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda who will become a free agent in a couple of weeks following the expiry of his current contract.
The landlord here in the Transfer Tavern has spotted an article in The Guardian, which suggests that the French stopper has held talks with Chelsea over a summer switch to London.
The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for a better season during 2016/17 and hope to see a glut of summer signings arrive at Stamford Bridge.
They finished in a lowly mid-table position last season and under new boss Antonio Conte the club is expected to finish much higher in the league during next season.
One Chelsea fan is sat in the Tavern with his pals watching the Euro 2016 highlights and he thinks Mandanda would be more than solid backup for Thibaut Courtois, although he does concede that the Frenchman signing would probably spell the end of Asmir Begovic’s time at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans, would you welcome Mandanda to the club? Who else should the club sign?
