It’s another action packed Saturday in the Football Transfer Tavern with a hearty dose of FA Cup and Premier League football to get stuck into to.
I notice a section of the bar seem to be waiting for the teatime kick-off as Chelsea take on Spurs in a huge game with implications at the top of the table.
A group of Chelsea supporters have been distracted with reports about the latest target to replace Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge as Metro suggests that Jose Mourinho is considering a move for Valencia left back Juan Bernat.
Latest speculation in the tavern indicates that the England international could be allowed to depart the club in the summer after falling out of favour in Mourinho’s side.
And now gossip has emerged that the promising La Liga left back is now a prime target for the Blues.
Manchester United have also shown interest in the 21-year-old, who is regarded as a proper modern full back – equally adapt getting forward as in defence.
While Southampton’s Luke Shaw remains on the radar his valuation at close to £30 million could put any prospective suitors off, and the Valencia youth product represents excellent value at nearer to £6 million.
Can you see the Spanish Under-21 international replacing Cole in SW6? Let us know your thoughts below.
