Chelsea to sign Fofana…for 88 million!


Chelsea never stops. Sponsored by a billionaire Todd Boehley and driven by this irregular start to the season, the ‘blues’ continue to pour more money into this market and will reach €288 million spending. It must be said, the product obtained at this time is an urgent important need, because Tuchel’s team needs a central defender like the one they ate after the marches of Antonio Rudiger at Real Madrid and Andreas Christensen at Barca. Koulibaly has just arrived from Naples, as Jules Koundé has chosen the Barça team.

the chosen one is Wesley Fofana21-year-old Leicester central defender, for whom Chelsea will pay 88 million euros as a fixed amount. The English media such as ‘The Sun’ and the market specialist journalist Fabrizio Romano have already accepted the operation, where only documentation issues need to be closed. After several offers, the fixed amount remained at 88 million, despite the fact that it seemed the Leicester I don’t want less than 100 million.

Fofana’s situation at Leicester has become unsustainable, as the ‘foxes’ coach, Brendan Rodgers, decided to leave him out of the calls and punish him for forcing his departure from Chelsea. Rodgers kept him out of the group during training, forcing him to train with the second under-23 team.

In the absence of Fofana’s arrival made official, France under-21 international Chelsea have already made six signings this summer: Marc Cucurella from Brighton (65.3 million), Raheem Sterling from Manchester City (56.2), Kalidou Koulibaly from Naples (38), Carney Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa (18), Cesare Casadei from Inter (15) and Gabriel Slonina from MLS Chicago (9). The London club is the one that has disbursed the most in Europe in transfers with these 288 million ahead of Barça’s 153.
