Chelsea Reject Audacious £30m Manchester City Bid!

Money men get carried away again!

Football - Manchester City v Bolton Wanderers Barclays Premier League

The Rumour

Manchester City last night had a £30million bid for England captain John Terry rejected, as Chelsea told them he is not for sale at any price. Stamford Bridge officials released a statement exclusively to Sportsmail after confirming that a bid had been made in person by Eastlands chief executive Garry Cook. The statement read: ‘Chelsea can confirm it has completely rejected an offer from Manchester City for John Terry.’

The Analysis

Depending on your stance you could deem the move from Man City to snap up the England skipper as brave or simply foolish. Mark Hughes desperately needs to add quality defenders to offset and balance the array of attacking talent the club clearly has, so there is no harm looking to get the best players available, especially if you have money to burn, however there are some players simply not worth approaching and John Terry is one such player.

The Chelsea man will more than likely never represent another club such is his devotion to the cause, many have stated that he did at one stage consider leaving Stamford Bridge but I am not sure how serious this speculation really is. The Eastlands boss has a struggle on his hands to persuade truly big names to sign for the club, and he may soon realise that success can not be achieved overnight and I can only hope for his sake that his boardroom are as aware of this as he no doubt is, otherwise he may find himself out of a job even if he manages a good top six finish next term.

The Likelihood

Terry to Man City: A bridge too far!
