“Using us” – Some Chelsea fans split over links to Bayern star

Transfer rumours are cycled round so endlessly that when a new one is suggested, there’s often a kind of feeding frenzy as everyone look to get their oar in and have a taken on the new rumours.

Chelsea have been linked with multiple Kepa replacements in the last few months, but it was the one we were linked with last night that drew the biggest response on social media.

Manuel Neuer has been a top keeper for some time at Bayern Munich, so it was no surprise to see us linked to him now we need a goalkeeper. Fans on social media, responding to the rumours, weren’t universally happy, but there is definitely a sense that Kepa’s time is up.

Although others pointed out that Neuer’s contract is expiring, and these rumours are often started by agents trying to earn more money for their clients.
