Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are gearing themselves up for wholesale changes this summer and they’ve got a taste for the Italian food on our menu, munching away on our pizza bread as they discuss the latest rumours.
Le 10 Sport suggest that Chelsea’s plans to overhaul their midfield are well underway with the Blues approaching Champions League rivals Paris Saint-Germain to discuss a potential deal for Blaise Matuidi.
The highly-rated French international midfielder has risen to prominence during his five years in the French capital, which have coincided with PSG’s dominance of French football, and Chelsea’s new boss Antonio Conte is keen on the 28-year-old.
However, Chelsea are likely to have to pay a high price if they are to secure the talented midfielder as PSG are desperate not to lose their star-player, especially as both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani look set for an exit this summer.
Our landlord still believes a deal could happen though as Matuidi has achieved all he can in French football and the lure of the money in the Premier League could be decisive.
Chelsea fans, is Matuidi the perfect recruit to bolster your midfield? Let us know in the comments below!
