We all know that Chelsea have tried on what seems to be three confirmed occasions to tempt Spurs into selling Luka Modric to us. Modric himself has even tried to leave Spurs but that hasn't helped either. We have all had our say and our opinions but it seems that AVB has admitted defeat finally and has turned his attention on other targets.

Last weekend, I blogged about a potential move for Porto's Joao Moutinho which for me would be a great move by Chelsea. Ever since the story broke, nothing else has been said.

We have been linked with Wesley Sneijder since the summer and there are rumours going around once more that we could be in for the Dutchman but I am not so sure..

The fact of the matter is, Juan Mata is the first step to rejuventating our midfield, to add some creative flair and it seems that AVB hasn't quite given up just yet either.

According to The Sun this morning, Chelsea are looking at a bid of around £30m for Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery which is a surprise. I say it's a surprise, but it isn't the first time we have been linked with the talented Frenchman. Carlo Ancelotti tried to bring him to Stamford Bridge but that never happened, So I am wondering what will happen if this new move for Ribery goes ahead?.

According to the article, Bayern are holding out for £36m and Ribery remains one of the highest, if not THE highest paid player in German football on a whopping £180,000 per week and has FOUR years left on his current deal.

Don't get me wrong, Franck Ribery is a hugely talented player but comes with baggage as we all aware of his antics off the pitch. Do we really believe that Ribery is the answer to the player AVB is obviously looking for or is the fact that the Modric deal isn't happening, we are becoming desperate to recruit "someone"?.

If Ribery comes to the Bridge he will have to take a pay cut and are Chelsea willing to pay him those kinds of wages and that transfer fee?. We have to remember, today is the day the football world goes made so there will be rumours a plenty.

Is this just pure speculation or something that could become reality? We will have to wait and see! Here's what Ribery can do...
