Transfer deadline day saw so many deals close to completion but in the end it was a day where Jim White couldn’t get quite as excited as usual and there was a distinct lack of any block buster moves!
As fans recover from a stressful day in the Transfer Tavern and piece together whether they are better or worse off after this summer window, the punters in this boozy pub have been discussing one story in depth today. Surprise, surprise, it involves the somewhat of an enigma, midfield maestro Paul Pogba.
It is emerging today, via Metro, that long time loyal club servant John Obi Mikel was on the brink of making a move to Turkish club Besiktas, but was denied a move after a massive deal to sign Paul Pogba never materialised for the Blues.
It seems that Mikel was set to be sold to make room in Mourinho’s squad for the imminent arrival of the French talisman, but has now remained at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future!
What will this do for moral amongst the squad Chelsea fans? Let us know your thoughts below!
