According to Chelsea News in Russia, Premier League side Chelsea are looking into the possibility of signing Hull City’s Allan McGregor.
We’ve seen some surprising links in recent times involving Football League clubs but this one is certainly up there with the Hull veteran getting linked with the current Premier League champions.
Of course, he has plenty of experience and ability at this point in his career and has been a regular player for the Tigers this season in the Championship.
You wouldn’t have him down as a Chelsea player now, though, and though it’d be more than likely that he is signed as a back-up, we can’t really see why the Blues would go for him instead of other options – with all due respect.
As well as that, is McGregor going to want to sit on the bench for a club when he is coming towards the end of his career? Arguably he might if the pay at Stamford Bridge is good.
It remains to be seen, then, if this one comes off but it certainly seems a little far-fetched at best.
McGregor is a solid goalkeeper but he is not the player he once was and Chelsea could probably find a better back-up option.
Let’s see if anything comes of this rumour in the coming weeks, then.
Thoughts, Hull fans? Let us know below!
