Report: Benteke wants to join Tottenham Hotspur, isn't ready for Chelsea

Chris Brunskill

This report makes a lot of sense, as Benteke probably doesn't want to make this sort of move in a World Cup year

There was another update on Christian Benteke today, and they confirmed what we've been hearing for the past day or so. Christian Benteke seemingly wants a transfer to a bigger club where he'd be first choice, and he doesn't believe he'd be so at Chelsea:

This backs up the view that most of us have had from the start, that regardless of Chelsea potentially having interest in the player (and I'm still not convinced that they actually do), the transfer isn't one that makes a whole lot of sense for Benteke. If Chelsea managed to offload Demba Ba and Fernando Torres to create guaranteed minutes for the Belgian, I'm sure he'd be a little more willing to join. I can't see that happening though, so I'd assume this one is more or less a non-story.
