Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has admitted he doesn’t want his Blues career to end over ties with Tottenham Hotspur.
Conor Gallagher appears to have no plans to leave Chelsea despite rumors of a late move to rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Gallagher captained Chelsea as they overcame AFC Wimbledon in a 2-1 Carabao Cup win on Wednesday night.
It was a big moment for Gallagher and he has outlined his commitment to Chelsea.
Gallagher announced this to Chelsea’s official website that captaining Chelsea means the absolute world to him.
Gallagher has been at Chelsea since he was eight and it was a dream come true for him to captain the club.
The midfielder added that he doesn’t want to stop and hopes for many more proud moments in the Chelsea shirt.
“It means to the world, a really proud moment,” Gallagher said. “I had a very proud family at home, so I’m glad it was a win and a good performance. I’m just very grateful and proud.”
“To be here from the age of seven or eight when I started at the academy and to live ten minutes down the road is a dream at the moment. But I don’t want to stop, I want to keep improving and keep helping the club. But it was a great moment and hopefully there will be many more,” he added.
Conor Gallagher’s move to Tottenham seems doomed
Those comments don’t really sound like a man looking for a deadline exit, do they?
Gallagher is heavily linked with a move from Chelsea, with Tottenham Hotspur apparently keen.
The Telegraph claim Tottenham were encouraged to apply for Gallagher after Chelsea came on for Manchester City winger Cole Palmer.
Palmer is on the verge of a £45m move to Chelsea and Tottenham appear to think Gallagher could be available.
The Blues would be open to a £50m transfer but whether Gallagher would be keen on leaving is another question.
Gallagher exerts a real emotional attraction to Chelsea, as illustrated by his reaction to leading the side on Wednesday night.
Convincing him to leave Stamford Bridge seems difficult, let alone convincing him to join one of Chelsea’s rivals.
We can understand why Chelsea would want Gallagher as a home-scoring midfielder, but we just can’t see Gallagher leaving in the next 24 hours.
