Chelsea rejected by Premier League star in sensational circumstances
This transfer window has been one to forget for Chelsea fans, and now it seems things have gotten far, far worse.
The club looked like being a laughing stock, after seeing Ross Barkley reject them half way through a medical – after terms and a fee had been agreed with Everton.
It was the last thing Chelsea needed – and something that was indicative of the summer they’ve seen at the club in terms of transfers.
They’ve still not finalised the future of Diego Costa, who looks set to spend at least the next six months in Brazil on strike, and have seen Antonio Conte express his displeasure on more than one occasion.
Chelsea have of course seen several players reject them this transfer window, and the fans of the club have certainly expressed their concern.
Not only have they seen players opt for rival clubs – but they also saw Nemanja Matic sold to boot, and that’s hardly reassuring given how well he’s done for Manchester United this season already.
Now, the Blues will have to make do with what they have – though quite if that will be good enough for the club when all four competitions are up and running remains to be seen.
