Chelsea on red alert as £25.5m-rated target hands Conte huge boost

The Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been talking about one issue only all day after some surprising news reached the bar earlier today.

Earlier in the week, the Blues had been linked with a move for Roma defender Kostas Manolas, however, he was all but a Zenit St. Petersburg player.

Because of that, the Chelsea punters here in the Tavern had stopped talking about the Greek international so much, accepting that he wouldn’t be at Stamford Bridge in the new season.

However, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol, the £25.5m-rated centre-half did not show for his medical at the Russian outfit.

Solhekol claims that it is down to an issue over the currency in which he will be paid, with the 26-year-old wanting Euros over the Russian Ruble.

However, that has not stopped the Blues fans here in the bar from getting excited and out landlord has noted that if Antonio Conte ever had a chance to land the Roma man, it was now.

Blues fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think Conte still stands a chance of landing Manolas, or this this all just a formality which can be ironed out quickly in Russia? Let us know…
