Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are in high spirits today, as they see last night’s victory over Southampton as a crucial step towards Premier League success.
The Blues’ victory at Stamford Bridge installed a seven point advantage over second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who face a huge test tonight against a Crystal Palace side that have recently conquered Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.
With so few weeks remaining in the season, Chelsea fans are now focused on the summer activity they need to be a force in Europe next season and they’ve received a boost with one report from the continent, which suggests imminent activity.
Spanish outlet El Confidencial reports Chelsea will go all-out to bring Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata to the club this summer, as they seek to fend-off rival interest from Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
The 24-year-old striker is set to be sold at the end of the season after a disappointing return to the Santiago Bernabeu, where he’s failed to secure regular opportunities in Zinedine Zidane’s side, and Chelsea are ready to make their move as they seek a replacement for Diego Costa.
Our landlord believes Chelsea will be able to get this significant deal over the line and he doesn’t expect Chelsea’s business to be done their either, as he feels further attacking recruits will be targeted.
Will Morata be a star in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments below!
