Chelsea lining up shock move for Matic replacement

According to SkySports, Chelsea Football Club are lining up a surprising move for Danny Drinkwater.

This sound familiar.

The Blues have been linked with the Leicester City star before, but nothing ever materialised.

But now the rumours are back, with Nemanja Matic finally making the move to Old Trafford, Sky have dusted off the old reports and rehashed them.

Blues fans will argue that they already have players to fill the position, but mainstream media thinks otherwise, so I’ll just stick to that report.

The 27-year-old is understood to be at the top of Conte’s wanted list along with Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches but with a contract at The King Power Stadium until 2021, prizing him away from the 2016 Premier League champions may be another matter.
