Silly season is in full swing right now, and you know we are in the heat of it when you hear rumours such as this one.
According to Italian transfer website TuttoMercatoWeb, Chelsea are looking to hijack Manchester City’s deal to sign Aston Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish.
Sounds rather far-fetched, right? Well yes, but as I always say, anything can happen in transfer (silly) season, and anything can happen in this business.
With that said, I would certainly encourage a pinch of salt whilst reading this particular rumour, with Chelsea’s focus appearing to be elsewhere on signing a new big-name striker this summer.
Grealish looks nailed on to go to City if he does go anywhere in my view, but as per the report, Chelsea are also interested in him and are looking to get in under the radar and hijack the deal.
I wouldn’t be buying your Chelsea shirts with Grealish on the back just yet guys!
