Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are reading the news from ESPN FC with surprise, with the publication suggesting that Chelsea are closing in on a deal to sign New York Red Bulls defender Matt Miazga, within the next 24 hours.
This news has come as a shock to most of the Blues fans here in the Tavern, with them all agreeing that they’ve never heard of the 20-year-old in their whole life!
Our landlord here in the Tavern says he’s seen the centre-back in action numerous times on the flatscreen TV here in the pub, and admits he could actually be pretty shrewd purchase for the west London outfit.
Miazga has just under a year left on his current contract, and it seems that the Blues are prepared to offer him a chance to play in the Premier League.
Mike, a hardcore Chelsea fan over by the pool table here in the Tavern, feels this is an odd signing, but is hoping the Blues have unearthed a gem of a defender!
Chelsea fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Miazga at Stamford Bridge? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
