Chelsea have a chance to disappoint Manchester City and Pep Guardiola in the transfer market

Here's a fairly random story from the last 24 hours or so, concerning a couple sort-of-and-maybe-eventual Chelsea players.

According to German tabloid Bild, Pep Guardiola has buddied up to Borussia Monchengladbach director Max Eberl and was "overheard" letting him know that he finds their collection of young talent, especially the trio of Andreas Christensen, Thorgan Hazard, and lovingly named Mahmoud Dahoud "very exciting".

Well, I mean, who doesn't, right?

Since then, this story has evolved into a transfer rumor because of course it did, in which case Guardiola better aim all his efforts at Dahoud because the other two are either staying at Gladbach or coming back to Chelsea.  In fact, as far as Andreas Christensen goes, he's set to finish his two-year loan this season and take his rightful place in the new-look Chelsea defense starting next season.  It is written.

Meanwhile, Thorgan Hazard, who's enjoying a very good start to his season, should still have a buy-back clause in his contract, or at least a first-option for Chelsea to match and compete with any transfer offer received for him.

So, back off, baldy.
