Chelsea plot transfer move that could save Abramovich millions

There’s not been much to moan about for the Chelsea fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern over the last few months. 

Antonio Conte looks like delivering a fifth Premier League title to Stamford Bridge and the Blues who frequent in their droves are already looking ahead to what is hopefully a busy summer of recruitment.

Having struggled so much to defend the Premier League title last season, reports from ESPN have out west London locals believing the club could be well-placed in doing so next term.

They claim Chelsea are keen on a move for Atheltic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte, as Conte looks to strengthen his backline.

The Frenchman, one of the classiest central defenders in La Liga, is thought to have a buyout clause of around £54.6m with the Basque outfit, one that will reportedly rise to £58.9m in a year’s time.

So, moving for him this summer around would save Roman Abramovich a few quid indeed.

With John Terry due to depart SW6 in just a few weeks time, the 23-year-old is already being talked about in the bar as his potential replacement.
