One of the most bizarre transfer businesses has just happened!
Ross Barkley was the subject of a £30m bid with add-ons from Chelsea after he declined to sign an extension at Everton, with 12 months left on his contract. Barkley traveled to Chelsea for his medical after everything around his transfer fees was agreed. However, in an amazing twist of events, Rose Barkley changed his mind halfway through the medical and demanded a move back to Everton!
Well, at the time of going to press, the deal was off!
Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri while speaking to Sky Sports, confirmed the news adding that he expects the player to stay at Everton till January when he will review his position again.
Other sources however, indicate that Tottenham Hotspur could now be favourites to sign Barkley in addition to defender Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente.
