It’s been regurgitated a thousand times over, without much sticking power, but if anyone out there still believes that Alexandre Pato will join Chelsea this month, we’ve got news for you. According to the Evening Standard, Blues players believe that the striker could sign on at Stamford Bridge this week, with Guus Hiddink needing more options in his front-line. Radamel Falcao is out injured, Diego Costa is a doubt for the upcoming clash with Arsenal, and Chelsea are still in a precarious position. It’s said Corinthians want £11 million for their man. Another transfer target, Alex Teixeira has admitted he is happy with supposed interest from the Blues, saying he would do everything he could to continue to improve. He also stoked the fires of speculation by insisting he may need to move away from Shakhtar Donetsk.
