Breaking: Portuguese Press Bemused as Chelsea Target Midfield Superstar

The Portuguese press is at it again, as they are clearly obsessed with rumours about players in Portugal, as much as anywhere else in Europe. The media there in the country is quite good at coming up with various speculations, which might appear anywhere across the continent and can somehow relate to Portuguese football.

However, the British media has completely bemused their Portuguese counterparts with a potential move linking Chelsea with Ruben Neves. The 18-year-old superstar could move to Stamford Bridge in January if a deal works out with Portuguese newspaper O Jogo making it very clear that the rumours emerged in the British media.

Though it does not seem too concrete, it will not stop the rumours from going on and on and there is some evidence to back things up, mainly the fact that the Blues are looking to reinforce their midfield and Neves is a talented defensive midfielder. If a deal does go through, Chelsea would add a high quality player to their squad, after their poor start to the league season.
