A truck full of Manchester City replica jerseys were spotted hurtling along the M6 this morning following Chelsea’s owner’s decision to sell the West London club.
It’s understood the delivery is being sent to SW6 following overnight talks between Blues supporters and City officials, with both parties said to be keen on a switch of loyalty to the Manchester club.
The confirmation comes after a confused old Swiss man told a German newspaper on Tuesday night that he’d been offered the opportunity to purchase the Stamford Bridge outfit for £2 billion.
After briefly considering a return to supporting Championship side QPR, Chelsea fans sent an SOS to both Man City and Newcastle United offering their services.
Newcastle swiftly rebuffed the offer, citing their ability to fill St James’ Park on a weekly basis without the aid of ‘plastics’.
Toon officials were also concerned by reports they’d suddenly become everyone’s ‘second favourite team’, which is generally an indication that a turn-coating is imminent.
NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?
However, high-ranking City officials jumped at the opportunity to recruit the Chelsea defectors and sent a lorry load of their third kits to London to seal the deal.
‘London plastics will continue to experience the unbridled joy oil-sponsored success and we might finally sell-out a Champions League game at the Etihad. It’s win-win, baby’, a jubilant Sheikh Mansour told Paddy Power News.
Meanwhile, former Chelsea captain John Terry was spotted among a group of supporters gathered outside Stamford Bridge as they eagerly anticipated the arrival of the lorry.
‘This has been the most difficult week in Chelsea’s whole 17-year history’, the 41-year-old told Paddy Power News.
‘But now it’s time to look to the future’, he said, while stripping off his tracksuit to reveal a full Manchester City kit.
‘Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone…’, sang the former defender, as he was hoisted into the air and carried off by raucous ex-Chelsea fans.
