After a fairly disappointing performance at Wembley last weekend in the Community Shield against Arsenal, Chelsea fans have something to have a drink to today as it looks like they are set to get one up on another one of their London rivals.
This comes as The Telegraph are reporting that the Blues are set to make a bid for full-back Danny Rose, and they have told Tottenham Hotspur to name their price with regard to the players departure.
One full-back, Filipe Luis, has already gone out the exit door of Stamford Bridge this summer transfer window – and Mourinho is seemingly set to replace the Brazilian with Danny Rose, and this has certainly caused a mixed reaction here in the Transfer Tavern!
As well as this, the arrival of Abdul Baba Rahman from Augsburg that was at one point looking likely now seems to have stalled.
This has led to Mourinho looking to bolster his defence by swooping in and prizing Rose away from the Lane, and our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern had his say on the matter, “Rose is a pretty decent defender, but if i’m honest, Chelsea can do a lot better and I feel that Filipe Luis is a technically better player than Rose, so what’s the point!”
What do you think Chelsea Fans? IS Danny Rose good enough for Chelsea? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below!
