Good morning and welcome to Wednesday’s transfer news update from CFCnet where we take a look at the latest potential arrivals and departures at Stamford Bridge ahead of a busy summer transfer window.
First off, Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira looks set to be moving to Serie A club Juventus on a free transfer this summer. Both Chelsea and Arsenal has been considering a move to bring the German International to the Premier League but it appears that both teams are prioritising other candidates instead. The German was thought to want to move to England.
Meanwhile, Chelsea target Antoine Griezmann’s move to London might be in doubt after his club are apparently pushing out for a fee of around £46 million. These types of situations have happened many times before and more recently Chelsea have opted to chose another target instead. Griezmann himself desperately wants the move and has confirmed that publicly, however the Blues will not be involved in high priced negotiations. The price is likely to drop though and a move could still go ahead should the fee be agreed.
Finishing on some excellent news, Eden Hazard has squashed rumours of interest from Spain declaring that he wants to spend the next decade at Chelsea football club! Yes, I am also hoping that he was stone sober when making these comments! A player who seems to love the club and love being a blue so the news of him staying throughout his prime and longer, comes as sheer excitement to any blues fan.
