Chesea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are getting very excited about the news coming from Metro, with the publication claiming that Zenit St Petersburg defender Ezequiel Garay is in talks with Chelsea about a potential transfer.
With Chelsea having three bids rejected for Everton youngster, John Stones, and Chelsea’s less than convincing start to the Premier League season, already conceding seven goals, major doubts have already been raised about the Blues title credentials.
However, news from Metro suggests an alternative to Stones may be around the corner, with strong rumours of a move for Ezequiel Garay, this is news that has got champagne spraying and the beer caps popping off around the Football Transfer Tavern.
As our landlord here in the Tavern quips, Garay is a seasoned professional, who has proved himself at the top – this could prove to be a very strong signing for Chelsea, should the Stones negotiations fall through as it looks like they will.
A much needed signing given the defensive fragilities, which have been the talk of many Saturday nights here in the Tavern amongst the Chelsea supporting punters!
Chelsea fans…… What do you make of this news? Is Garay the man you need? Garay or Stones? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
