Latest transfer news concerning reported Chelsea and Man United target hardly promising

Our Manchester United and Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a busy summer already, though Il Messaggero’s (via Inside Futbol) latest report has come as a slight blow. 

Chelsea will surely be looking to strengthen their squad after a title win in the next window whilst United, you’d imagine, will be keen to get back to the top of the table next season, too.

Indeed, plenty of bids are being expected here in the Transfer Tavern, then, but it appears Stefan De Vrij may not be one of those to move after all.

Earlier this week Italian outlet Il Messaggero (via Talksport,) had claimed that both United and Chelsea were looking at the Dutch defender as their latest new recruit.

It appears now, though, he could be staying put with Lazio with the player not ruling out staying with the Rome club.

De Vrij is a very talented centre-half and has impressed for both club and country in recent times.

Our landlord reckons he’d be better suited at Chelsea if he did move but that may not even happen now.

Thoughts, Chelsea and United fans? Let us know below!
