According to a report from ESPN from yesterday, it's Liverpool, Chelsea and United who are in contact with the players reps with Liverpool ahead in the race. But like you stated, L'Equipe only name dropped Chelsea as the team who could well snatch the player so maybe we aren't in the running.Exactly, and that's why I think that this transfer will still take a while. If Konaté's entourage is still in touch with Chelsea, and Konaté himself hasn't been involved yet, then we can't just rule out everyone else at this point. With that said, I think that we can rule United out. L'Équipe have only mentioned Chelsea in their report, which makes me think that we aren't necessarily in active contact with Konaté's reps.
