Here we have a swift roundup of the Monday transfer rumours surrounding Chelsea FC and with the summer transfer window approaching fast, as expected there are some interesting rumours floating around.
First off, as reported recently by CFCnet, both Filipe Luis and Loic Remy are almost certainly going to be heading for the exit this summer after both featuring on the bench far too regularly than what they expected.
Luis is rumoured to be eyeing up a move back to Atletico Madrid and the Serie A club are also keen on bringing him back should Chelsea decide to sell. Currently being kept out of the starting line up by a right back in the shape of Cesar Azpilicueta, Luis will surely request a move and needs first team football at this stage of his career.
Meanwhile, Loic Remy has been lucky to even get five minutes game time at the moment and has not had any faith put in him by Mourinho, who has often put Didier Drogba ahead of him. Remy again will certainly look elsewhere this summer with Crystal Palace showing a solid interest.
There have been many sources stating that Chelsea are still interested in signing Radamel Falcao, even though he’s failed to impress in the Premier League this season on loan at Manchester United. Tottenham are also interested as United apparently don’t want to sign the Colombian permanently. A cut price for Falcao could be the attraction here for the interested sides.
Falcao was carrying a £60 million price tag prior to this season but it is thought that Monaco will let him go for around £20 million now and he does want to stay in England and prove himself.
Finally, this will probably be the big ‘what if’ of the summer. Former Spurs winger Gareth Bale is being rumoured with a move away from Real Madrid and according to reports, Chelsea are very much interested.
Bale is struggling to settle and be accepted in Spain and could well be interested in a move back to the Premier League with one of the top clubs. Chelsea are certainly missing a player of his quality, someone to even up with Eden Hazard down the opposite flank so all the flair is not solely relying on one player. The Blues are also prepared to branch out and match his high fee and wage demands, hoping to raise money from the various players who could be shown the Stamford Bridge door.
