‘Just Imagine…’ ‘Lol, We Don’t Need Him’ Fans Laugh Off Speculation Linking Chelsea With 100M Rated England Star

Chelsea could challenge Manchester City for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, according to reports in the Italian media.

Despite the Citizens having been favourites to sign the 25-year-old for most of the summer, it is believed that Thomas Tuchel’s side could muscle in on the negotiations.

Supporters on Twitter are, understandably, rather bemused by this latest claim, with many dismissing the story as inaccurate:

Grealish is likely to cost in excess of £100m, and with the Blues pursuing Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, it is hardly likely that the club’s owner Roman Abramovich is going to sanction two club-record transfers.

Chelsea did spend in excess of £200m last year, but that was the result of funds being available due to a long spell of inactivity in the market after a transfer ban. Spending even more on just two players this summer seems very unlikely unless there are some significant outgoings as well.
