Metro have us punters all rather stunned here in the Football Transfer Tavern with their latest claim.
The publication sensationally report that Chelsea are about to land Paulinho – who of course only joined London rivals Tottenham Hotspur last summer.
That news will not go down well with Spurs fans and as our regulars note over a game of pool, after Chelsea landed Willian from under Spurs’ noses, we thought they were done with stealing players from their neighbours. Evidently we were wrong
Jose Mourinho is a fan of the Brazilian international and feels that he would be able to add strength and depth to the middle of the park – not to mention provide another option tactically.
One point that our landlord does make however is the fact that the Blues do have a fair few players in their midfield and it could well mean a summer exit for the like of David Luiz or even Ramires.
Mourinho is hoping to get the move sealed before the start of the World Cup and as our regulars claim, at least this will give Spurs a chance to regroup and buy in the summer.
Chelsea fans. If it were a case of Paulinho or Ramires, wouldn’t you want to keep your current Brazilian? Let us know your thoughts below.
