The year 2020 has brought us many strange, weird, and tragic things, but one thing it hasn’t yet gifted upon this unsuspecting world is a transfer deal between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. But, there are still three months to go so you never know!
Here are Sky Sports in fact peddling a story of Spurs being “interested” in Antonio Rüdiger, who’s been deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge after Thiago Silva’s arrival. Rüdiger has yet to play this season, while the other four center backs on the team, Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, and Fikayo Tomori, have all made at least two appearances in the first four games.
Mourinho’s Spurs have been looking to add a center back to their team for a while, and while they’ve identified a target that makes me quite envious in Milan Škriniar, Inter Milan are driving a hard bargain. Rüdiger would certainly be a decent alternative to the 25-year-old Slovakia international, but business between Chelsea and Tottenham simply doesn’t happen, even if we ignore the Luka Modrić saga.
The last time Chelsea were actually involved in a transfer deal with Spurs was in 2001, when Gus Poyet moved on from the Bridge.
