The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern were never sure on this deal…
Whilst Chelsea enjoyed a strong start to the Premier League season, the dust has finally settled for the Blues fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Without a Premier League win in 3, one Chelsea fan in the Tavern has put his side’s lack of success in recent weeks down to one thing; a lack of defensive stability.
With John Terry nearing retirement and with Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill woefully out of form, the Blues have simply been unable to cope with the offensive threat provided by the majority of the teams in the Premier League.
There was a light in the tunnel, however, with reports that Roman Abramovich was ready to bankroll a rebuild at Chelsea – with the defence his main priority.
As a result of this, Chelsea have been linked with a move for Burnley stalwart Michael Keane – who has impressed for his club so far this year.
When questioned on his future, Keane replied: “I am really happy here”, seemingly putting cold water on any reports linking him with a move away.
Whilst this quote was in reference to Leicester, our landlord thinks it definitely applies to Chelsea’s interest too.
Keane has struggled to find a permanent home in recent years, and he clearly does not want to give that up now that he has finally found a club in the form of Burnley.
It doesn’t look like a move to Chelsea, Leicester or any other club is looking likely.
With that said, the Chelsea fans in the Tavern are not too devastated. The majority of them feel that Keane is not good enough to man the heart of the Chelsea defence – and that the Blues should be looking for a more recognisable figure.
