Chelsea to forget John Stones and launch January swoop for 6ft 1 defender

ManolasChelsea supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern are not really sure what to make of the news they have read in Metro – with the publication suggesting that the Blues will stop their pursuit for John Stones, and instead target a move for Roma defender Kostas Manolas.

The publication cites reports from Italian outlet CalcioMercato, with it claiming that Mourinho is keen on a deal for the Roma centre-back, in a bid to rejuvenate their beleaguered defence.

Our resident Chelsea fans enjoying a game of darts with a beer here in the Transfer Tavern have no idea what to make of this, with every single one of them admitting they’ve never seen him play!

Our landlord has seen him play, having watched him play for Roma on the big screen here in he Tavern, and he admits that the 24-year-old looks like a fantastic player, and his composure on the ball makes him standout.

Chelsea fans…… What do you make of this news? Would this be a good signing for the Blues? Stones or Manolas? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
