Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern feel the weekend’s victory over Everton has assured them of Premier League success, leading them to focus their attention on summer transfer business.
Antonio Conte faces a challenge to improve the depth within his squad and make his side competitive ahead of a return to the Champions League next season, with his midfield likely to be the focus of his attention.
Spanish World Cup winner Cesc Fabregas continues to be linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and there is also similar debates surrounding the future of Nemanja Matic, as many fans feel N’Golo Kante needs a more attack-minded partner.
Because of those beliefs, the latest report from The Sun has received positive feedback from supporters, as the publication cites comments made by Marco Verratti’s agent, Donato Di Campli, who told Premium Sport talks will be held with Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
“I don’t feel like saying anything. A lot of wrong things have been said. I want to keep things calm as PSG aren’t in the most happy of moments.”
“We’ll ask for a meeting with the club to discuss Marco’s future. The club have said that Marco won’t leave so we have to respect the will of the club. But we will make a point of the situation after the Coupe de France final.”
Whilst PSG are adamant the Italian midfielder won’t be sold, the performances of Unai Emery’s side this season have been extremely disappointing- with the French champions likely to concede their Ligue 1 crown to Monaco, having collapsed in the weekend’s defeat to OGC Nice.
Our landlord believes Chelsea will be second-favourites in any chase for Verratti’s signature though, as he feels Barcelona will be the more likely destination.
