Chelsea target Kostas Manolas has picked out the best teams in the world that he believes he is capable of playing for – but we’re not one of them.

We’re reluctant to take our pursuit of Manolas seriously just yet. Speculation linking us with a move for the AS Roma centre-back has come along with suggestions that Daniele Rugani could be set to switch Juventus for Chelsea.

Manolas and Rugani are two defenders with a similar profile, who are valued around the same by their respective clubs. The former may well be a contingency plan in case our pursuit of Rugani fails.

Perhaps we have to put our arrogance aside and consider that he’s currently playing for a team that just reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. We won’t even be in the competition next term.

Manolas appears to have greater ambitions than a move to SW6. He’s quoted by the Daily Star saying:

“It’s only natural you want to play for the biggest clubs, like Barcelona, Manchester United, PSG and Bayern Munich.”

“I think I could make the difference anywhere I went, even at Barcelona, although I’ve never been close to a move to the Blaugrana.”

Perhaps someone ought to show him United’s league positions since Fergie left. We’ve won two Premier League titles since that time!
