One of our leading tabloids, if not the leading tabloid, has come up with an interesting theory with regards to the supposed stalled transfer of Taison to Stamford Bridge.
It suggests that a deal had all but been brokered for the 24 year-old Metalist Kharkiv player. A fee, in the region of £8.5, had reportedly been agreed along with personal terms with negotiations between Chelsea Football Club and the Metalist Kharkiv owner Oleksandr Yaroslavsky, before an almighty spanner was thrown in the works.
It appears that Yaroslavsky sold the club to Serhiy Kurchenko and, for some reason or other, the new owner has no desire to do business with Roman Abramovich. Instead, it now looks as if the player is headed for Shakhtar Donetsk!
