Chelsea were unexpectedly connected with a double transfer swoop last night, and it’s set Twitter aflame.
From stalemate on the appointment of Maurizio Sarri, and seemingly left in the dust by Manchester City deal trying to complete a move for Jorginho, they look to have been resurrected in both pursuits.
Sudden Tweets from some of the major players in the transfer gossip business got people talking about a rumoured double deal for the two having been agreed by Napoli and the Blues. There’s even a rogue mention of Higuain coming too from Sky Italia’s Angelo Mangiante.

It’s the stuff of dreams for Chelsea fans who had been on the verge of giving up on anyone being signed.
They’re willing to believe anything if it gives them hope, even a move as shocking as this.
Jorginho choosing Chelsea ahead of Manchester City must mean he’s really been convinced by what we’re planning to do to help Sarri’s project off the ground. It also shows we’re still serious about competing at the top level.
