Chelsea and Manchester City supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from Talksport (via L’Equipe) with interest – as the publication is suggesting Chelsea and City are keen on securing a deal for Angers midfielder Cheikh N’Doye.
Both clubs have sent scouts to watch the talented midfielder in action for the Ligue 1 club, and our resident punters here in the Tavern have no idea what to make of this news, with all of them admitting they’ve never seen the 29-year-old play football before!
Our landlord here in the Tavern admits he has seen the Angers midfielder a number of times this season on the flatscreen TV in the pub, and feels he could be a very astute purchase for either team – but does have question marks over the player’s age – with the star already reaching the latter stages of his playing career.
The publication claims that it would take £10 million to lure the star away from the French club, but whether Chelsea or Man City will fork out this sum of money is yet to be seen.
A handful of City fans over by the open fire here in the Tavern are not particularly happy with this piece of transfer gossip, and argue that the club already have a number of older players, so the club should really be aiming to bring in more younger talent!
Chelsea/Man City fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see this Angers star at your club? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
