Parker Being Linked to Chelsea
A rumour doing the rounds ever since Michael Essien first got injured has suddenly gone stratospheric with the news that the Chelsea midfielder is out for six months.
West Ham's Scott Parker is being linked with a move to Chelsea. On paper the move does seem to make sense for the west London club.
Parker is well known to Andre Villas-Boa as he played for Chelsea when Villas-Boa was there with Jose Mourinho. Parker would also help bolster Chelsea's English contingent.
Presumably the move could also appeal to Parker as it would allow him to finish his career with a Champion's League club. However Parker could have some doubts that he might just end up spending a second spell at Chelsea as an expensive bench warmer.
