During the January transfer window, Chelsea were said to be in the running for the signature of Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph as a competition/backup for Matic who remains Chelsea only reliable defensive midfielder. However, Chelsea fans who are hoping to see the young but very powerful Englishman play for the blues can finally bury the thought.
The player is said to be having a medical with Manchester City ahead of a reported 8 million move to the citizens. This is surprising especially after the player reportedly rejected the citizen just last week.
The player had reportedly agreed a deal with City last week and an announcement was imminent but a statement from the player put all that to rest. The deal is however back on according to reports.
Should the reports be true, it will be the most unexpected U-TURN transfer of the window and it is particularly surprising from Chelsea view point why the club is not moving for him especially as City are reportedly signing.
