Some transfer rumours just don’t add up and the latest transfer rumour from Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb claiming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte reportedly wants to swap Diego Costa with PSG midfielder Javier Pastore just don’t add up. This isn’t a transfer report we can take serious.
Argentine midfielder Pastore has found game time hard to come by this season after making just 15 appearances for PSG in all competitions under Unai Emery so why will Chelsea swap him for a Diego Costa that is a key player in Chelsea.
Another reason why the rumour can’t be trusted is that Pastore isn’t a Conte type of midfielder as Conte typically prefers energetic midfielders as his two central midfielders. Pastore also isn’t an upgrade on what we already have at Chelsea at the moment.
This transfer report by Tuttomercatoweb sounds so ridiculous and can’t be trusted.
