Chelsea seemingly handed knock-out blow in chase for world class talent

Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see their side finish the season strongly as it really looks like they are going to win the league.

Indeed, it would take a collapse the like of which we’ve probably never seen before for them to now lose the league title and so what they must be thinking about is a domestic double.

With them still in the FA Cup there is every chance of that, too, and that would surely mark a superb season for Antonio Conte in his first campaign in charge.

Certainly, the main task for the Italian boss now has to be ensuring the Blues do not let their grip loosen on things in this country and so signing more players in the summer has to be high on his agenda.

Who they buy, of course, remains to be seen but it looks like they are going to miss out on Marco Verratti.

Goal.com are reporting that whilst Conte is a fan of the world-class midfielder, Barcelona are the favourites to bring him in and so it seems as though the Blues have lost this race.

Thoughts, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
