Remember how Manchester United were on the cusp of signing Atletico Madrid defender Miranda? No, neither do I, but apparently they were, and it’s been hijacked by Jose Mourinho, according to talkSPORT.
Chelsea are said to have put in a £20 million bid, which, if successful, will help them in their quest to re-assemble the Atletico team in London. Diego Costa and Filipe Luis have already made the hop over to Stamford Bridge this summer, apparently they prefer dreary grey clouds to sunny, sunny Spain, but each to their own I guess.
At 29, Miranda isn’t getting any younger, and with the bid apparently below a £24 million asking price, this rumour may never graduate to anything real, but it’s always nice to dream.
