It might be Juan Mata that is forging all the headlines currently regarding the lack of his presence in the Chelsea starting eleven, but punters in the Football Transfer Tavern have just been handed a viral image that changes the topic of conversation slightly.
After seeing the picture that looks remarkably like David Luiz and Thiago Silva as children in Brazil – then as young aspiring footballers who have since made it at Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain – we have to ask the question; will they be linking up together one more time?
Jose Mourinho has made no secret of how much he rates certain players in his squad – but others have not been so lucky. Huge question marks currently hang over the future of Luiz, and a move does not seem to be as unthinkable as it once was.
There are no shortage of takers for the player who does not seem to conform to the Mourinho way of defending. Not only do Barcelona want to pay a huge amount for him, but Thiago Silva’s current club PSG could also be keen.
Given how close the two defenders are, not to mention how well they play together in tandem for their country, the suggestion made by our regulars over a pint and some nuts at the bar is not that shocking. Perhaps PSG chiefs could use the relationship between the two players and ask Silva to convince his friend to become his colleague not just internationally, but domestically as well?
