Chelsea are still working with Porto on the Alvaro Pereira deal but aren't particularly sure that they'll manage to get anything done, according to Matt Law of the Express. Everyone's been all over the place with this one, from all-the-way-dead rumours to Pereira being all but signed and sealed, so I have to suspect that Chelsea being unsure about how this whole thing is going down in an accurate reflection of negotiations. Things seem more or less nonsensical at this point.
