The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have mixed opinions on this deal…
Rumours were rampant in the Football Transfer Tavern over the summer, with a variety of players linked with a moved to Chelsea amid Antonio Conte’s Blues revamp.
One of those players was now-Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata – with Chelsea reportedly keen to launch a big-money move for the talented Spaniard.
Everyone in the Tavern thought the deal was close to happening – but even our landlord didn’t realise that it was this close…
“Chelsea showed the most interest,” he said.
Wow! The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern don’t know what to make of this.
Our landlord is a bit perplexed too. The Blues are definitely in need of offensive reinforcement, but Morata has done very little to prove that he is worth becoming the most expensive Spanish player ever.
Equally, our bar staff are slightly confused as to why Real Madrid didn’t accept the offer. Fernando Torres is currently the most expensive Spanish star – so it would have been a bid in excess of £50 million.
Chelsea fans – thoughts?
