Guest gossip columnist Stanley Accrington casts an eye over the Sunday papers - and there appears to be a lot of apparent activity at Chelsea as journalists struggle to fill the Premier League void
In the absence of any real football, sports journalists and pundits are having to ‘earn their corn’ and go out and find some stories.

​Chelsea striker Diego Costa is reportedly keen to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer and rejoin former club Atletico Madrid.
Chelsea striker Diego Costa is reportedly keen to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer and rejoin former club Atletico Madrid. 
Or they can make them up. Or speculate. But try and involve Chelsea at the moment if possible and everyone seems to be reveling in the 2015-2016 season specialists of failure.

So step forward Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle legend David Ginola who has told BT Sport that he believes not only will Jose Mourinho quit Stamford Bridge and become Paris St-Germain boss but he will also sign Cristiano Ronaldo – in time for next season.

I wonder how current PSG manager Laurent Blanc feels about that?
Ginola insisted: “I know the Qatari investors would like to have Ronaldo at the club, no matter how much it will cost, they will pay for it.

“And I can also see Mourinho as the next manager of the team.

“So I think there’s going to be a lot of Portuguese in Paris.”
If all is to be believed, they might as well install revolving doors at Stamford Bridge.

According to the Sunday Express, the Blues will offer Atletico Madrid £40m for striker Antoine Griezmann, but two other Chelsea forwards could be bidding farewell to London.

There are, however, no quotes to back this 'exclusive' up…

The Sun on Sunday says Mourinho is ready to send Radamel Falcao back to parent club Monaco if an agreement can be reached to end his season-long loan from the Ligue 1 club.

And Diego Costa looks to have paid the price for a barren spell and on-pitch behaviour. The Sunday Mirror reports Chelsea will sell him in January and pursue two other strikers.

The same paper claims former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben is up for grabs after falling out with Bayern Munich team mate Robert Lewandowski – Manchester United head that apparent queue for that apparently unhappy Dutchman who wants to link up once again with his former Holland boss Louis Van Gaal.

There are, however, no quotes to back this one up…

At least Nemanja Matic will be able to turn his full attention to Chelsea’s Premier League plight. The midfielder revealed to the Evening Standard that he is ready to quit the Serbian national team because he doesn’t like the attitude of his team mates.

Said Matic: “I told our coach there is no point in me carrying on with the national team if things don’t change.”

Tottenham’s plans to finally secure the signature of West Brom frontman Saido Berahino could be derailed by Newcastle who, according to the Sun on Sunday have £20m set aside for just such a bid in January but White Hart Lane fans could be welcoming Dinamo Kiev defender Domagoj Vida for £7m claims the Daily Star Sunday.

There are, however, no quotes to back these ones up…

Former Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor, linked with Aston Villa for so long when his ex-boss Tim Sherwood was in charge there, is now once again ready to put pen to paper for the Villa Park strugglers and new boss Remi Garde claims the Birmingham Mail.

There are, however, no quotes to back this one up but apparently SkyBet has Adebayor 6/4 favourite to do so “before February 3”, an odd random date, by which time Villa Park fans will already be planning for life in the Championship and possible trips to Burton, Gillingham and deadly local rivals Walsall.
