Exactly - and for those saying he would prefer to play for Sari, that is also a bit naive - remember when Isco said Pellegrini was like his father and it was assumed that sentiment made the difference, yet the lure of Real Madrid put paid to that. If Chelsea wish to overpay and more importantly, the player makes a complete u-turn then perhaps he is not the right type to play for Pep. Re other comment - For what it's worth I think Jorginho as a player is more suited to what we need. Fred is a great player no doubt but our need was for an Alonso type and Jorginho brings that. No panic he'll arrive.Jesus wept.
You have seen how transfers play out for years and you are still so naive?
It wouldn't be normal for a player that is on the brink of joining a new team, to be linked to another club right at the latter stages of the deal. That's what journalists do, they talk absolute nonsense.
I've heard so many times that Man Utd were going to hijack our players at the last minute. Balotelli and Mendy spring to mind.
