The Pride of London talk about some shocking Chelsea transfer news as the Blues are reportedly open to selling star player Reece James. Real Madrid will supposedly offer a measly £34.5million for the England international. While the club is said to value its prime asset at closer to £51.5m. Meanwhile, PoL also give our impressions of the west London side’s newly released third kit.

On Thursday lunchtime I was clearly shocked to see a headline from Express suggesting that James was possibly for sale. The reports emanate from Spain, but leading outlets in England now carry the story. However, Blues supporters shouldn’t worry too much yet as any proposed move wouldn’t likely occur until summer 2024.

In addition to that, Chels’ are understood to have ‘no intention’ of selling the rightback at the moment. Worryingly though, the right offer could make CFC consider the prospect. Thankfully, los Blancos are ostensibly unwilling to pay £51.5m for the injury prone yet electrifying young footballer.

Impressions of Chelsea’s new shirt

The Blues will be dressed in the exotic colour of ‘mint foam’ when they require third-choice apparel this season. The fresh looking shade is actually complimented by having no sponsor, which is not always the case. Although, the English capital team will want that lucrative aspect settled soon, regardless. My advice to the money-spending element of the CFC fan base is to buy this latest release as it is at this stage, before it is ruined by later added advertising.

The Chelsea Nike third kit is simple, almost minimalist, elegant and fashionable in a modern streetwear sense. The wolf grey pattern and black trim definitely establish this as a classic effort.

Apparently the vision ‘stems from the past’ as the shirt is actually called Eton Blue. CFC players wore this edition for two campaigns from 1905-07.
