In the both the NBA and Premier League, summer is all about trade/transfer rumors. It’s the offseason for both leagues, which means it’s the silly season for gossip and rumors about which players are headed where. Chicago Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler was one of the hottest sports news topics today as multiple sources reported that the team is actively shopping him.

Multiple teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves, are in trade talks with the Bulls. So where was Jimmy Butler today, while his future is being determined for him?

At Chelsea Football Club in west London.

Check it out, the face of the Bulls met the Blues at the Bridge:

In the past, the Bulls front office has denied they were shopping Butler, even though it was made public that they had been fielding offers. Being overly clumsy and totally inept in media relations is just one of the many serious issues that the Bulls have as a franchise, but we’ll see if they can get this trade right. Chicago’s front office has a very poor track record lately on the trading block.

For Chelsea, transfer rumors are flying and furious as well. The Blues have agreed to terms with free agent goalkeeper Willy Caballero, and the 35-year-old’s arrival is expected to be confirmed soon.

He will be the first player added to the Chelsea roster this summer, but there are reports that Stamford Bridge could be closing in on two more additions- Tiemoue Bakayoko and Romelu Lukaku.
