Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are shocked at the news they have read in the Daily Star via Fichajes – with the publication claiming that Chelsea are plotting a sensational swap deal that would see Diego Costa depart, and Gonzalo Higuain arrive at Stamford Brudge.
The Chelsea fans who regularly enjoy a pint here in the Tavern, have been on the end of relentless abuse from some of the punters this season, all because of the abysmal form the Blues are in this campaign.
Higuain, who currently plies his trade for Italian outfit Napoli, could be set for an amazing move to Chelsea, which would see Costa move the other way – and our Blues fans have no idea what to make of this mad transfer rumour!
Several Chelsea fans enjoying a pie and pint near the billiards table here in the Tavern feel Costa is world-class, but is simply enduring a poor run of form this season – and they all agree that it would be mental to offload him anytime soon.
Our landlord has to agree with the majority of Chelsea fans here, but does argue that Higuain is a world-class striker too, and definitely has the pedigree to excel in the Premier League.
Chelsea fans….. What do you make of this news? Good news? Bad news? Will this happen? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
