Chelsea supporters have been having their say after Everton star Ross Barkley denied claims that he had a medical with the Blues before deciding against a move.
The Blues had a £35m bid accepted for the player, who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury which could keep him out for a couple of months, but he decided against the chance to link up with Antonio Conte’s champions.
It was claimed by Everton officials that Barkley had already had his medical with Chelsea before changing his mind, but he tweeted on Saturday: “Contrary to a number of reports in the press, I did not undertake a medical with any club at any point.”
He added: “I simply decided that due to my injury, it would be best to make a decision on my future and assess all my options in January when fully fit. Thanks for all of the support.”
Here’s what the fans from Chelsea and other clubs made of his comments:
