What’s the story?
At last! Someone other than me saying this. I’ve been saying this for weeks and weeks now. Especially here.
Does it make sense? Of course. Selling a player who could score 25 goals for your direct rivals for the Premier League title is clearly not a good idea, and is something United haven’t done in decades.
Is the price right? There isn’t a price where selling to Chelsea makes sense.
Will it happen? 1/10 – I don’t see how it can.
