The Chelsea fans were racing to the bar to get the celebratory bubbly in yesterday here in the Transfer Tavern, after reports announced that Italy manager Antonio Conte will join the Blues at the end of the season.
The ex-Juventus boss is the man who has been tasked with reviving the club’s fortunes after a fairly traumatic season for those of a Chelsea persuasion.
The transfer reports have already started and one Blues fan is sat reading the latest news on his tablet when he spots an article in Gazzetta World, who are claiming that Conte wants Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain to spearhead his attack next season.
The Argentinean striker is an absolute goal machine and the Blues are set to test the Serie A club’s resolve during the summer transfer window.
Our landlord thinks Higuain is destined for the Premier League having already conquered two major European leagues, he believes England is certain to be his next challenge.
Chelsea fans, would you welcome Higuain at the club? Will he replace Diego Costa, or play up top with him?
