5 most bizarre transfer rumours this January
Peter Crouch to Chelsea
Peter Crouch is a footballer loved by all for his comedic antics off the field and how he plays on the field. A boyhood Chelsea fan, he was linked with the Blues this month with Michy Batshuayi being told he could leave Stamford Bridge. Chelsea could do with another striker due to lack of power up front and cover for Alvaro Morata, which leads to…
Andy Carroll to Chelsea
The Geordie man who has had a few injuries, Carroll still has amazing talent for the Premier League and is superb for West Ham, after his failed stint at Liverpool. He was also linked with Chelsea, like Crouch who he is often compared to due to their size and power up front.
Neymar to Real Madrid
After only a few months in France after leaving Real’s rivals, Barcelona, Neymar was linked with a move to the Spanish capital as Zidane wanted someone who could score goals in Spain and was world class, but it’s fair to say this isn’t another Figo, as he is still in Paris preparing to face Los Blancos in the next round of the Champions League.
Allan McGregor to Chelsea
The Rangers legend McGregor has been also linked to Chelsea by a Russian report, with the Blues looking for more goalkeeping options with Thibaut Courtois reportedly angling for a move and Willy Caballero needing cover if this is to happen.
Ashley Barnes to Chelsea
It looks as if the West London side have dominated this, and they have. Ashley Barnes who has been superb for Burnley in their early run for the European spots was linked with a big move away but ultimately it hasn’t happened. Barnes is still in Lancashire while Chelsea again need to look elsewhere for a covering striker.
