Major blow for Chelsea with one of world’s most expensive players not keen on summer switch

Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are hoping to see a managerial change in the summer months, after all but failing to secure Champions League football for next season. 

Indeed, the Blues have looked less than convincing in the current campaign as they put up a poor title defence, and remain on course for Europa League football next season. And, it doesn’t look as if things are getting any better for Antonio Conte’s side, as according to Don Balon, Ousmane Dembele has rejected an offer from Chelsea and wants a move to Manchester United.

The Frenchman could leave Spanish giants Barcelona in the summer transfer window after failing to break into their side following his £120 million move from Borussia Dortmund.

Indeed, it’s understood that the attacker has rejected an offer from Chelsea and two other clubs, with Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal also keen to lure him away from Catalonia in the summer.

Although, much to the dismay of many of our local residents, Ousmane Dembele has not yet rejected Manchester United’s proposal, and he has always wanted to play his football at Old Trafford.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Chelsea will be gutted that the attacker has rejected their offer as he could have made a huge impact at Stamford Bridge, but with no Champions League next season it will be difficult for the Blues to attract major talent. And, with Manchester United in a commanding position to bring the Frenchman to Old Trafford, perhaps Chelsea will finish below the Red Devils again next season.
