It’s the silly season and as usual transfer rumours will circulate the media until transfer deadline day.
Some clubs will get successful with their targets, others won’t, but one thing that will remain constant is that the rumours would always remain in every transfer window. And of course, every football lover must keep following the turn of trends that happen till their favourite clubs get the targets they can get while the transfer window is open.
There is a circular motion involving Chelsea and rivals Manchester United in their pursuit of a top centre-forward. Both clubs have been linked with Lukaku and Alvaro Morata this summer. While Manchester United seem to be edging closer to the signing of Morata and Chelsea favouring Lukaku, none of the deals have come close to reality yet.
Now, Chelsea are also trying to phase out Diego Costa and create room for Lukaku, while reports claim United are trying to use Wayne Rooney in a deal to get Lukaku.
Reports of Chelsea’s interest in Lukaku seems to be cooling down and don’t be surprised if Chelsea opt for another striker. And now, United’s potential interest in Lukaku come after suggestions Chelsea are growing frustrated in their pursuit of the Belgium international.
According to David Anderson of the Daily Mirror, the Blues are finding it tough to move Diego Costa on, which is holding up their chase for the Everton man.
On the other hand, Everton are reportedly ready to intensify their interest in Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney, with the two clubs also said to have held talks about Toffees forward Romelu Lukaku.
One thing about the transfer window is that you can never be too certain till it happens. We’ve seen Fernando Torres join Chelsea on a deadline day deal, we’ve seen the likes of Oscar Odenwingie try to force out deals by themselves and we have seen Chelsea sign David Luiz on transfer deadline day after failing in the pursuit of Kalidou koulibaly and Leonardo Bonucci.
It’s the silly season, and it’s going to be like this until transfer deadline day.
