The focus is on the fact that the Blues will not be signing Cristiano Ronaldo, but it goes on to reveal other parts of their rapidly evolving plans for this summer.
It’s noted that the Blues are keen to sign as many as SIX players, with Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly now effectively done deals.
Of those remaining four, one is hoped to be a right wing back to back up Reece James. We’re pleased to hear that. That makes much more sense than the central defender links that have been rattling around.
Other sources today have hinted that this wing back option will be so attacking that they will be more of a forward player pushed back to wing back – perhaps explaining what our plans for Raphinha were.
