As we move in to the off-season an unprecedented amount of managerial movement around Europe will surely see an already frantic transfer market go in to overdrive. This will give plenty of opportunities for transfer rumour and gossip. So how much of it is realistic?


Chelsea are planning a £10m bid for Roma’s Italy international Daniele De Rossi, 29, as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen the Blues’ midfield.

Full story: Daily Mirror

What’s the story? £10m?! We’ll get to that later. De Rossi is a lifelong Roma fan and player so tempting him away would be hard, however he has intimated that he might be willing to leave for a crack at the Premier League.
Does it make sense? De Rossi would be an immense signing for Chelsea, providing the drive and power from defensive midfield that a young Michael Essien provided in the Mourinho heyday. He’d bring steel to a side with a ridiculous amount of talent.
Is the price right? No. Where’s £10m come from? Maybe three times that.
Will it happen? 5/10 – It might do but not at this price. He’d possibly be the best signing Chelsea could possibly make.
