He has been continuously linked with a big money move to Chelsea in this month’s window or in the summer, but his future has been speculated so much that we have become accustomed to seeing his name in the media.

However, these rumours could be a massive disappointment tom many that want to see him ply his trade in a blues shirt as reports in the Metro claim he has shown a very keen interest in joining French side PSG.

As quoted in the Metro he said: “France is a marvellous country.

“I’ve been there before, and I love it. PSG have a very ambitious sporting project and they’ve invested a huge amount of money to construct a competitive team. That will need time, but that could come very quickly.

“It’s not impossible that I could be meeting you [the French media] very soon.”

It is no secret that he is Abramovic’s number one target and he has tried intensely to get his man.

And despite the arrival of Demba Ba earlier in this window, Chelsea remain keen on in-demand hitman Falcao, but the interest doesn’t appear to be reciprocated, and the Colombian star could be heading to France instead.
