Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent their season playing pool and distracting themselves from the awful on-field performances.
Ahead of tonight’s crunch-tie with in-form Leicester City, the Blues sit just one-point above the relegation zone but their is positive news filtering in from the continent.
The 21-year-old Portuguese international is highly-rated and tipped for an exciting future, with Monaco prepared to do a deal if their price-tag of £21.6m is met.
Barcelona are also interested in the talented midfielder but are targeting the player in the summer, rather than January, which hands Chelsea the initiative in the race for one of Europe’s most exciting talents.
Monaco are currently sat third in the Ligue 1 table but are a monumental 17 points Paris Saint-Germain, which leaves any chance of glory this season completely shattered. Their best hope is a return to Champions League football.
Chelsea fans, is this a deal you want to complete? Let us know in the comments below!
