A player’s social media activities can speak a lot about his rumored transfers. It only serves to fuel the speculations, or in some cases, leave the fans in a quandary. A similar situation has arised in the Chelsea camp after Timoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger’s recent social media activity.
Following a picture on Twitter by Nike Football which features Blues centre-back David Luiz posing in Chelsea’s kit for the 2017/18 season accompanied by Gorillaz member 2-D besides him, Monaco’s Bakayoko, a rumored target for Chelsea and Manchester City, and Antonio Rudiger both liked the post fuelling the prospect of a Chelsea transfer this summer.
Although there aren’t any reports on Chelsea’s official bid for either of the two, let alone a deal materializing, but this act by the two has certainly raised a few eye brows.
While a certain section of the fan base suggest Bakayoko has a sponsorship deal with Nike themselves and hence the like, there are some who are of the opinion they shouldn’t have done that in first place regardless, if they aren’t moving to Chelsea this summer.
