Our resident Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern have endured a rollercoaster of a season, with the club nowhere near they are expected to be in the Premier League table.
However, things finally seem to be on the up at the west London outfit, and the news filtering into the Tavern from the Telegraph has alerted the Chelsea boys – with the media outlet suggesting that Chelsea’s ‘manager-in-waiting’ Antonio Conte is planning to bring Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonnuci to Stamford Bridge.
As most people in the world of football are aware, a certain John Terry will be departing Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, after an illustrious career at Chelsea, which saw him win the Premier league and the Champions League.
It seems that Conte wants to fill the void left by Terry, by bringing in Italy defender Bonnuci, and our landlord feels this would be an astute signing for the club, as his experience at elite level in football is invaluable.
Our regular Blues fan are hoping this transfer news is legitimate, with them all agreeing with the landlord, that Bonucci would be a excellent acquisition!
Chelsea fans….. Would Bonucci be a good replacement for John Terry? Let us know below!
