The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent their day dancing on the pool tables in the pub…
After a tremendous season in the Premier League, it is beginning to look like Antonio Conte wants to make next season even better – with a host of big names linked with moves to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks.
The latest of these has generated some real interest, with the Sun reporting that the Blues are keen on a move for Italian star Marco Verratti. Though a deal for the midfielder is unlikely, that hasn’t stopped the fans in the pub from getting carried away.
Arguably PSG’s most talented player, Verratti has really improved in recent years, and Antonio Conte is, of course, familiar with him from his stint in charge of the Italian national side.
It is a very similar tale amongst the Chelsea fans on Twitter, with many supporters clamouring for the deal to come true. See what they had to say below…
Marco verratti in a Chelsea shirt is all what I want in my life.

More reports coming in with Chelsea going to bid £55m for Marco Verratti – someone who I admire and could run the Chelsea midfield imo. #CFC
