Our Chelsea fans are feeling pretty upbeat here in the Transfer Tavern but they’ve certainly not taken kindly to the news that Niklas Sule looks set to join Bayern Munich according to German outlet Bild.
The Blues are currently flying in the Premier League and know, regardless of the result in the Merseyside Derby later tonight, they will have at least a six point lead at the top of the tree this Christmas.
Cause for celebration here by the bar, then, but this news that they look set to miss out one of their reported January transfer targets (as per The Daily Mail) will undoubtedly put a slight dampener on things.
The Blues have got one of the best defences in the league at the moment with David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta taking to a back three like ducks to water but our landlord reckons they need extra options.
They’ll likely be in the Champions League next season and so Sule would have been perfect for the club but it now appears they’ll have to look elsewhere for a defender.
How bothered are you, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
