Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been stunned into silence as they play poker by the fire, after hearing their lucrative swoop for a highly-rated youngster has been rejected.
‘For the last few days, Chelsea representatives have been in Zagreb, where they have prepared a great offer for Adrian Semper. We thanked them. They were highly professional and pleasant people, but we said no.’
‘It is never easy to reject such a big offer, but we are convinced Adrian has a fantastic future ahead of him and we want him to spend at least some of that future with Dinamo.’
The teenager is tipped to have a bright future but it seems it won’t be at Stamford Bridge, which will be a concern for Chelsea as they’ve failed to land this teenage prodigy from a side ranked significantly inferior in comparison to the West London outfit.
It’s not a major concern to our punters though, who believe Thibaut Courtois will remain in West London for years to come and they’re confident there’s not many goalkeepers out there who would dislodge the Belgian from his first-team spot.
Chelsea fans, is Courtois the best goalkeeper in the world? Let us know below!
