Boehly told to bring brilliant £250 million duo to Chelsea


Wayne Bridge has encouraged Chelsea to try and sign Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice in the coming transfer windows.

Rice and Bellingham – who are performing brilliant for England at the World Cup – are two players that have been heavily linked with a move to London – as both are tipped to join big clubs in the coming windows.

Now – amid all the speculation – Bridge has opened up and claimed that he would love the club to sign the brilliant duo – He told Football London: ‘They’re the future, aren’t they? Youngs guys at the top of their game, great talent.

‘He’s great Jude, I think he’s probably one of England’s best players and he’s going to be around a long time. Obviously Declan, he sits in that midfield, he can make teams tick sometimes.

He’s playing that [Claude] Makelele-type role, he’s great defensively, he’s great at passing and he is actually technically a very skilful player as well.

‘I’ve seen stuff in training that he does with the ball – he’s a very good player and an intelligent player as well.

‘I’d like to see both at Chelsea. In the Premier League these days you need a lot of good players. You don’t need just 11 good players, you need 22, 25 players.

‘They would be perfect for Chelsea. It would be great. Especially as they’re English, when I first went to Chelsea, you get that English core.

‘It was really good from Roman Abramovich and Chelsea to get a load of English players in, it creates a good core and they seem like good lads.

‘For me, it would be a no-brainer. It’s just can you get them? There’s going to be a lot of people wanting them.’
