Chelsea fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are sitting uncomfortably after reading the news from Metro – with the publication claiming that Real Madrid are plotting a shock double deal for Chelsea duo Diego Costa and Eden Hazard.
The Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Transfer Tavern simply cannot believe what they have just read, but have belief in manager Jose Mourinho in keeping the pair at Stamford Bridge for next season.
Our landlord here in the Tavern admits he can’t see this deal materialising, and feels that it would be nothing short of a travesty if both Costa and Hazard did depart the club this summer.
New Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez is planning to imprint his own mark on the La Liga giants, and has seemingly earmarked the Chelsea pair as two players he would like to bring to the Bernabeu.
