Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are well and truly in the mood for Monday night’s London derby against West Ham and have been discussing starting elevens and key players all day, well they may have one more man to consider come match day.
According to reports from The Sun, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is weighing up a shock bid for Paris Saint Germain star, Blaise Matuidi.
The French international is a wanted man, with Juventus also linked with a move as a replacement for the world’s most expensive player, Paul Pogba.
The French giants, however, are desperate to hold onto the 29-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to Man United this summer.
The owner of the Parc de Prices side, Al Khelaifi, remains confident and has defiantly said that they “haven’t talked about Matuidi’s departure,
“The transfer window is finished for me. Matuidi is a pillar of the team and is under contract.”
