Gime a Like! Madrid star gets headlines going crazy ‘after liking’ Tweet claiming he should complete £70 million Chelsea move
Jose Gimenez appears to have ‘liked’ a post calling for his move to Chelsea.
Blues boss Frank Lampard has handed some serious money to spend in the summer window and delved into that cash fund to acquire players that have made this Chelsea side contenders for that Premier League title.
The attack has been improved and so has the defence, but there is a worry that Thiago Silva will not be able to keep up his level of performances over the course of the season into next season, while Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger are still not 100 per cent convincing.
That means that Lampard will be looking to add a new defender to the squad in the coming weeks, with Gimenez a player that has now appeared on the shopping list of the Blues coach.
Gimenez is fast becoming one of the most solid defenders in the game right now and is attracting all sorts of interest from the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG for his very impressive performances in that Madrid shirt.
He has a very high price tag that Chelsea would have to meet and pay, roughly around the £70 million mark, and would need some convincing that a move to the Premier League would be the best option for him.
But he has got the transfer headlines going crazy after the defender reportedly likes a Tweet suggesting that he should complete that move to Chelsea
Eagle-eyed Blues fans spotted the Atletico Madrid defender’s Twitter account appreciating the post – before it was hastily removed
Look, Chelsea have added the right players to that squad that have impressed so far this season, but Gimenez is a player that is on another level and a player that would be a great partner for Silva, and then an immediate replacement for the Brazilian.
It would be a massive shock to see Chelsea get a transfer deal done in the January transfer window, but come the summer, it will be interesting to see if they manage to secure a deal for the Madrid star
