Defender has made decision about Chelsea move, Blues to open £600,000-a-week Mbappe talks and Frenchman has decided to sign with Chelsea
Militao makes transfer decision, Mbappe talks to happen? and Kounde wants Chelsea move in Chelsea roundup…
Real Madrid star and Chelsea target Eder Militao has made a decision about his future with the Spanish giants
Fans were expecting some big things in the January transfer window as it was clear that Thomas Tuchel wanted to add some more quality to his squad. But despite all the rumours and all the speculation, The German didnt really get anyone in.
However, it is no secret that Tuchel will be in the market for a new defender in the transfer window and after seeing the club fail to get anybody in over January, he has already reportedly started requesting signings, and is keen on a move for Militao
We were also linked with a move for Militao three years ago but lost out to Madrid who met his buy-out clause at Porto.
After two underwhelming seasons at the Bernabeu, Militao has become an increasingly important member of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad, making over 30 appearances in all competitions this term.
Reports say Tuchel is a huge admirer of Militao and wants the club to bring him to Stamford Bridge in the summer, particularly if contract rebels Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave.
But we have now learned that Militao has no intention of leaving Madrid at the end of the season and plans to stay at the club
It is also believed that he is open to the idea of even extending his stay at the club and signing a new contract, although the Spaniards have no intentions of plotting talks just yet
The January window has just closed and Tuchel must have been disappointed with the business that wasnt done. He has many months until the summer window now to find the right players to improve the squad.
Rudiger will be a big loss, but Militao is a classy defender that would thrive in the Premier League, he really could be a great buy for the club. So it is a shame to see that he will not be coming
Jules Kounde has decided to reject Barcelona and join Chelsea, reports have suggested
Sevilla defender Jules Kounde is apparently top of the club’s wish list according to the journalist, after a move was said to be close last summer.
The French international has featured in 19 La Liga matches so far this season and is contracted at the club until June 2024, but he is heavily tipped to leave the Spanish side in the summer
It is no secret that Thomas Tuchel will need to add a few more defenders to the squad on the coming window as a number of stars could actually be leaving on a free, and there has been some big names linked with the club.
Kounde is playing the ‘last leg of his career at Sevilla’ and will leave them as their record sale in the summer, with both Chelsea and Barcelona battling it out for his services.
However, despite the fact it would be alot easier to stay in La Liga, IcFootballnews has learned the Sevilla star has decided a switch to the Premier League suits him better than Camp Nou.
The news will come as a welcome boost to Thomas Tuchel, who reportedly ‘love him’ and after having ‘already making an offer’ for Koundé in 2021, the club ‘will do it again in a few months’.
In other words, the Premier League side will make another proposal in the next window.
We have always said that we are massive fans of Kounde and believe he is well suited to the Premier League, so if the reports are actually true and he has decided to make the move to Stamford Bridge, he will be a brilliant signing for the club
We are massive fans and will welcome him, if the reports are actually true guys
Chelsea will be free to open talks with PSG star Kylian Mbappe about a FREE move to Stamford Bridge in the summer
The 23-year-old is one of the best players on the planet and he showcased his talent on the biggest stage on Tuesday, when PSG went up against Real Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 showdown in the Champions League.
However, The France forward is expected to leave the Parc des Princes at the end of the season when his contract expires, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Real Madrid all keen to wrap up a deal.
The Spaniards are favourites to win the race for Mbappe, but with funds tight, they may not be able to match his £600,000-a-week wage demands to keep tempt him to the Spanish League, opening the door to a Premier League move
Timo Werner has had a mixed at Stamford Bridge since joining and while Callum Hudson-Odoi, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic all have their strengths, none are as good as Mbappe.
Still only 23, the French forward has already lifted the FIFA World Cup and has plenty of time to reach greater heights.
Despite never playing in the Premier League, it’s hard to envisage Mbappe struggling to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League given he has impressed when playing English opposition on the Champions League.
Mbappe is one of the best players in the world, but there is a feeling that he is not quite built for the Premier League as his game is largely based on his pace. But under the right guidance, could you imagine just how good he could become?
He is ideal for our great club and the fact he could be signed for free? wow guys
