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.

These players always use us when they want better contracts at their clubs. Mans using us BIG TIME.

If there's anything I like about him it's his confidence.
He has the same confidence when catching air balls as courtois.
That said though this is prolly just rumor. He just wanna use Chelsea as a means of getting a recontract at Bayern.
Most top players do that 🤷

If Kepa fails again next season we will have a capable backup.
