To be honest, it's the same with Chelsea T1 sources too. They're only passing the info off as one liners in unrelated articles, almost as if it's a non-story but they'll add it as it's something.Don't think it would affect him either way though.
But I'm sure if this one was not happening, we would have briefed the press that we moved on to another target/pulled the plug.
Its still radio silence for our english T1 sources right now regarding us.
If Chelsea were interested, confident and ready to bid/close to deal as early as next week, you could imagine that the BBC would have gotten wind of it at the very least, or we'd have a full story from a Chelsea T1 not just a passing remark
