This has been a very quiet transfer window so far, so it’s perhaps not surprising to see Sky, whose websites, news channels and betting company all benefit from big transfer news, talking up a storm.
Their latest story concerns Chelsea and Boubakary Soumare, a talented midfielder playing for Lille, who came up against us twice in the Champions League group stages, giving our scouts and manager ample opportunity to watch him in person.
Sky start by naming the teams no longer interested – Real Madrid, Valencia and Arsenal, before declaring that it’s come down to two teams – Chelsea and Manchester United.
The key factor here is the game between Lille and PSG on the 26th of January. The source says that it’s only after that game that Soumare’s future will be decided.
So he has ten days to decide whether he wants to join Frank’s fighting Blues or Ole’s failing Devils.
An easy choice, if you ask us.
