Another incredible double deal for Chelsea?
Life seems peachy for everyone associated with Chelsea these days. The now customary trouncing of foreign opposition last night, put Chelsea a commanding position in their Champions League group, a couple of days after they extended their lead in the domestic table.
But, clearly, the top brass at Chelsea still aren’t happy with the status quo. Mindful of the threats posed at home by the Manchester clubs and in Europe by Barca, Chelsea are reportedly looking to strengthen yet again.
If recent reports are to be taken seriously, then Chelsea may well look to add Sergio Ramos and Falcao to their number as early as the winter window.
Spanish media source ES claims that Ramos has expressed a desire to leave the Madrid giants and that Chelsea will make a bid in the region of £40m in January. If Ramos is worth £40m then my grandma would surely fetch at least £10m but Mr.Abramovich clearly isn’t short of a few bob and Ramos has improved since he has played more centrally for his current club.
As for Falcao, Chelsea’s interest has been well documented for some time and Atletico president Enrique Cerezo has been talking the player up in the last few days. He says he wouldn’t swap his striker for anyone in the world but the more cynical amongst us will see this as him simply trying to increase the player’s price tag before the inevitable sale of the hit man. Cerezo is quoted on ESPN as saying:
“Falcao is the best striker in the world,”……”That is not just my words, I refer to the evidence. Nor would I want to swap Falcao for Messi or Cristiano, Falcao is the best.”
After Chelsea’s recent history in the transfer market noone would be too surprised to see Ramos and Falcao in the Chelsea blue come January.
