Todays Chelsea rumours are more like non-rumours and i was thinking of saying that in the headline, but it may not have made sense! But i will let you decide for yourselves whether they are rumours or not.
The first one is the news that Atletico Madrid have admitted they have rejected a bid for Sergio Aguero, and they seem to imply that it was the player himself that made the decision.
Athletico boss Miguel Angel Gil Marin said: “We have had another opportunity to sell him and again we have said no.
“Aguero will leave Atletico when he wants to go, as happened with Fernando Torres.”
So maybe it’s an ex-rumour rather than a non-rumour!
Then we have the Serbian winger Milos Krasic, wh has been linked with both Chelsea and Arsenal this week, after his agent was quoted as saying he would be moving to the Premiership in January. But now the agent in question, Dejan Joksimovic, says that he was misquoted.
“Unfortunately, I was badly interpreted,” he said. “I didn’t say that he will go to England. I said that only the English clubs are able to pay the money that CSKA is asking for Krasic.
“The situation is completely different. CSKA will not sell him until next June. That is what they have told me, and believe me, it will be like that.”
The last one concerns the Inter Milan youngster Mario Balotelli, who was roundly criticized by Jose Mourinho after one paticularly woeful performance, but Carlo Ancelotti only said that he would be willing to have him in the Chelsea team.
“I’d take a player like Balotelli,” Ancelotti said. “I like him and with me he would always play.
“But I don’t know how easy he is to handle. If he is really undisciplined, Mourinho is right to punish him. But I hope he doesn’t waste his talent.”
So that is not really a fully-fledged rumour either, in my opinion, but lets say that today’s post is simply transfer gossip, for want of a better word!
