  • Chelsea have made an INSANE £85M bid for Alexis Sanchez (WOW!).
  • Just kidding, it’s another bullsh*t report from Don Balon

Sometimes transfer rumours are so blatantly false that all you can do is laugh. This report by everyone’s favourite publication Don Balon is one of those.

Don Balon were, once upon a time, a credible organisation. They must’ve realised at some point that it’d be more profitable to publish straight up bullsh*t and watch the redirected traffic flood in from The Sun‘s and Daily Star‘s of the world.

When they’re publishing nonsense like this, it’s bound to get clicks. Get this, they’re latest report claims that Chelsea have made an £85M bid for Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez. No, this isn’t a joke.

Sanchez, the highest-paid player in the Premier League, has scored just four goals in 30 appearances since signing for Man United from Arsenal. That has apparently prompted Chelsea to break their club-record to sign him.

Not to mention that, with Sanchez being 30-years-old, we would only be able to offer him a one-year contract due to club policy. He’ll walk out the door after a season of service, with Chelsea not recouping a penny of that £85M. Sounds about right.

With the transfer window set to open, please, please, please – don’t believe everything you read online. There isn’t enough time in the day for us to separate the facts from the falsities.
