A little something that almost slipped under the radar yesterday, relates to a piece of transfer speculation that links Chelsea with the acquisition of somebody else who will soon be the wrong side of thirty.
In direct contrast to the direction we thought the club were heading, the news source, the Daily Mail, is reporting that Chelsea have rivals for the signature of the Barcelona midfielder, Ivan Rakitic.
It seems that Manchester United are also interested in signing the 30-year-old who, during his Barcelona career has been more of a squad member than a regular in the starting eleven.
But, if Chelsea’s interest is genuine and we are, to put it politely, looking to add another experienced player to the squad, the following might give you a fright.
Our referenced source is suggesting that the proposed fee for the 30-year-old would be a staggering £57 million.
