Metro are certainly providing an interesting day for our punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claimed that Jose Mourinho is going back to his former club to pull off a sensational swap deal.
Real Madrid are considering allowing Sami Khedira to join Chelsea, as long as Petr Cech heads the other way in a swap that would not only stun our Chelsea fans but also leave our resident Arsenal fans a little bit depressed.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with the German international midfielder and were looking to sign him this January given Real Madrid need to get rid.
Los Blancos are believed to be scrambling to receive a cut price fee given Khedira’s contract expires in the summer but Arsenal’s reported ‘agreement’ could now be plunged into doubt by old nemesis Mourinho and his world class second choice keeper Cech.
Real Madrid are keen to bring another stopper to the Bernabeu after seeing Iker Casillas’ performances dwindle, not to mention Carlo Ancelotti failing to be fully convinced by Keylor Navas’ ability as a number one.
Cech – who Ancelotti knows well from his time at Chelsea – would expect to be installed as number one given the trust between the Italian and the Czech Republic international stopper.
Chelsea fans. Is this a swap deal you think could interest Jose Mourinho? Would letting Cech go be a good idea? Let us know your thoughts below.
