The Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are definitely relieved about this one…
Chelsea were expected to part with a number of players this summer, but nobody here in the Football Transfer Tavern expected Kurt Zouma to be on the list.
The Chelsea faithful here in the Tavern were appalled that the Blues were even considering the deal, and things got even worse when the talks were described as “progressing well”.
They are reporting, as per a source club to Zouma, that the rumours of a deal were “completely false” – ridding Chelsea fans here in the Tavern of any doubt that the fan-favourite might be leaving the club this summer.
Our landlord could never get his head around the deal in the first place, so the news is hardly surprising.
Before suffering a long-term injury at the start of 2016, Kurt Zouma had firmly established himself in the heart of the Chelsea defence; displacing Gary Cahill at centre-half.
At just 21, Zouma is expected to be a long-term Chelsea star; and a move never seemed like the right decision.
He looks set to make a comeback to the Chelsea first team over the next few months, and he will no doubt force his way back into the side before too long.
Chelsea fans – we want to hear from you! Are you pleased that this deal isn’t going to happen?
