As we approach the end of November and head towards winter, the January transfer window is a hot topic. The Pride of London strive to offer opinion on all prospective Blues signings along with gauging the likelihood of deals in each and every case. This time around, Chelsea’s top target has supposedly been revealed by a credible football media source. Elsewhere, CFC’s Thiago Silva has apologised for his awful mistake against Newcastle United on a day which should have filled he and all fans of the west London football club with pride.
A couple of eye-catching stories to get our heads around here. First of all, Chelsea are reportedly ready to sign a marquee striker.
A deal for Victor Osimhen is unlikely to happen in January. Yet he is the priority signing, claim The Telegraph. More importantly, the Napoli centreforward is said to be open to a switch to Stamford Bridge.
Thiago Silva remains a Blues hero so he didn’t really need to say sorry to Chelsea supporters – the act shows his dedication, respect and honourable nature
While some would cower with their heads held low following a dreadful sporting mishap, Thiago has more courage and integrity than those souls. Yeah, his terribly-advised pass was intercepted by opportunistic Magpies at St. James’ Park on Saturday, though the legendary centrehalf will rise again.
Incidentally, the match should have been a joyous and proud event for the former Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan defender. As we are the same age, I am even further impressed by the fact that he is still doing it at elite level – with records to boot. Now a real elder statesman at age 39, the Brazilian international is the oldest-ever outfield player in CFC history. He didn’t need to, yet he expressed public regret for the goal-leaking error at Newcastle.
