Chelsea told to sign Marquinhos, Skriniar addresses Blues rumours, Chelsea make De Ligt approach in Chelsea latest…..
Rio Ferdinand says Chelsea need look no further than Paris Saint-Germain’s Marquinhos if they are looking to sign a defender in the transfer window.
There is alot of rumours that Tuchel will be backed in the transfer window and will look to add another defender, a midfielder and maybe a striker to his attack in order to win every possible title that they will be competing for.
Marquinhos is a player that Tuchel knows very well from his time with PSG, and there has been some speculation in the media that he is one of the players that Tuchel would like to Bring to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
And Ferdinand says there is only one player they should be looking at to upgrade their defence, identifying PSG skipper Marquinhos as one of the very best centre-backs in the world.
‘If any team is in the market for a centre-back, right now, out of the top teams, with the finances, Marquinhos is the only place I’m going,’ Ferdinand said on his Vibe with Five YouTube show
‘Big-game player. Every big game you see that guy play he turns up.
‘Fit as you like, quick, robust, hardened, battle-hardened, understands the big-game environments. Top, top player, great attitude, leader, got it all.
‘If I’m looking for a centre-back of experience who can take me to the next level, he’s the one I’m going for.’
Chelsea have made a transfer approach to Juventus about a possible deal for Matthijs de Ligt.
There is alot of rumours that Tuchel will be backed in the transfer window and will look to add another defender, a midfielder and maybe a striker to his attack in order to win every possible title that they will be competing for, with De Light on the agenda.
Regarded as one of the best young central defenders in the game, De Light has not had the best of seasons, like Many Juve players this year, and there were some rumours floating about that the Italians may be open to selling the defender.
And According to Tuttosport, the club reached out to Juventus to sound out a possible move for Matthijs de Ligt.But the report also claims the Serie A giants responded quickly with a resounding rejection
The news comes after Peter Crouch, writing for the Daily Mail, claimed we will challenge City for major trophies next term if they sign a centre-back: “Another transfer window, Charlie,” he said when asked what the Blues need to close the gap on City.
“If Chelsea can get a top-class central defender, one out of the highest bracket, that would put them in with a huge chance next season.
“Thomas Tuchel took over a really good squad but it is still behind City at the minute, for all the progress they have made.
“I cannot wait to see the next steps Tuchel and Chelsea make because I have been bowled over by the impact he has made.
“I’m so impressed and nobody in Europe would want to play them in their current form.
“They put a marker down for the Champions League final on Saturday. City will not play the line-up they used at the weekend on May 29 but it will be in their minds, the damage Chelsea can do in a one-off match.
“If you were giving me a free bet on that outcome, I would back Chelsea at the respective odds.”
Milan Skriniar has addressed the rumours linking him with a summer transfer move to the likes of Chelsea.
The commanding centre-half has seen a switch to the Premier League mooted for some time, with his talents said to be registering on recruitment radars heading towards the summer.
We have one of the very best defences in the Premier League under Thomas Tuchel, but there is a feeling that the German wants to add another centre-half to that back-line, as Thiago Silva will not be around for many more seasons.
However, despite the speculation that the club are ready to wrap up a transfer deal for Skriniar, the defender claims to be in no rush to explore options that are supposedly open to him.
Skriniar has told Sport Aktuality on the interest he is said to be attracting from afar: “There have been rumours, there are and there will be.
“However, I have never listened to or commented them.
“Of course, it will be no different after this season.”
He has added on his ambitions for the immediate future: “I want to enjoy this great feeling now, then I want to finish the season and prepare for the European Championship.
“Will I defend the title with the Inter shirt next year? Yes, of course.”
Skriniar is one of the very best defenders over in Italian football and it is very easy to see just why so many clubs are after him. So even though he is happy at the club, money talks, and we offer the right amount of money, they will get a deal done.
