The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been getting very excited at the prospect of Danilo moving to Stamford Bridge…
Arguably one of Europe’s finest defenders, the Brazilian has had a mixed spell with Real Madrid, but on his day – there is nobody better.
Given the poor form of Victor Moses towards the end of the season, there is certainly cause for concern at Stamford Bridge, and so a move for Danilo would – at the very least – add competition for places on the right-hand side of the Chelsea defence.
However, whilst a move for Danilo looked likely, it doesn’t appear that way anymore – with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Man City have now stolen a march on the Premier League champions. It is said that whilst Chelsea have made a bid, City are now in advanced talks regarding a move, and it appears as though Chelsea have resultantly fallen behind.
This will come as yet another frustrating blow for Antonio Conte, with Chelsea struggling to recruit so far this summer. Whilst the signings of Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko have served to improve the mood of the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, they are under no illusions that the hard work is still to come.
A defensive upgrade, alongside the signing of at least one new forward, is vital for Chelsea this summer, and Danilo would certainly have fit the bill – but now it remains to be seen whether that move will come to pass.
