Italian announces Chelsea working on deals to sign top-class duo worth £100m
Fabrizio Romano has opened up and claimed that Chelsea were working on deals to sign both Raphina and Jules Kounde in the summer window
After the war broke out in Ukraine just a few weeks ago, there was alot of pressure on Roman Abramovic to sell the club after his ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin caused all sorts of headlines
Eventually the Russian did put the club on the market and there has been alot of speculation about who will be taking over the club in the next couple of months, with a number of billionaires interested in a deal
However, before that all happened, Romano has claimed that Chelsea were closing in on the signings of Kounde and Raphina, two players that the club have been keen on for some time
With a number of defenders leaving the club at the end of the season, Kounde is seen as the ideal player to come in and replace those stars, with his performances earning him the reputation of one of the best in Europe.
Raphinha is a man that has been impressing in the Premier League this season, and with all the problems that we have had scoring goals this season, Thomas Tuchel is reportedly keen to add the Brazilian to the squad.
The news comes after Property developer and Chelsea fan Nick Candy has confirmed his interest in putting together a consortium to buy the club.
“Mr Candy is actively exploring a number of options for a potential bid for Chelsea,” a spokesperson for Candy said. “Any bid would be made in conjunction with another party and we have serious interest from several international partners.
“Mr Candy has a huge affinity with Chelsea. He has been watching matches at Stamford Bridge since the age of four. The club deserves a world-class stadium and infrastructure and Mr Candy’s unique expertise and background in real estate would be a hugely valuable asset to delivering this vision.”
The club are one of the biggest clubs in the world right now, so whomever takes over the club will need to keep on investing in order to keep them as one of the best
