Former Chelsea skipper John Terry has dismissed the idea that Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk would get into his old side.
The ex-England international was speaking to Sky Sports on Monday when he made the bold claim that the Dutchman would improve Liverpool and Manchester United but not Chelsea.
“If you look at Liverpool he certainly goes into their starting line-up and improves them.” he said.
“Arsenal he does the same, Chelsea he makes their squad better, I’m not sure he starts.
“Man City, I think he improves their starting XI, Man United certainly.
“I think the money we are speaking about is where we are at in today’s market.
“But I think he goes into all of them squads and makes them better.
“So I’m pretty sure they’re all going to be in for him in January.” he finished.
That surely won’t help Chelsea manager Antonio Conte in his quest to lure the Holland international to Stamford Bridge.
Although the twenty-six year old is likely to see through the nonsense that is clearly is.
