Things can sometimes move very quickly in football, so it’s always possible that an accurate report can quickly become inaccurate because of a rapid change of events.
The current situation with Kurt Zouma is causing confusion everywhere as it appears the deal is either close to happening, it’s completely cancelled, or it’s potentially somewhere in-between:

It also sounds like Jules Kounde’s move to Stamford Bridge is getting closer to being completed, so it would make sense if Zouma did leave as that will also force him down the pecking order:
Chelsea have confirmed to Sevilla today afternoon they want to proceed with final official bid to complete Jules Koundé deal ? #CFC
Still waiting for Zouma agents-West Ham issues to be resolved to sign Koundé.
Chelsea are still negotiating also with Atletico for Saúl on loan.

At this point there are simply too many conflicting reports to figure out what’s really going on, but it will be fun to see who was right when a conclusion is finally reached in this saga.
