Chelsea deadline transfer news: courtois out, Kepa in , kovacic in and more are coming through the door soon.
The tables have turned in chelsea’s favour as the club completed two big signings in just 24 hours and still have time for more !!
Thibaut courtois finally got his £31.5m move to Real Madrid after the goal keeper went AWOL in a bid to force a move to his dream club and wow, he succeed.
Chelsea however won’t be worried one bit as they already have a replacement in bound. Atletico Bilbao’s 23 year old goal keeper Kepa arrizabalaga was signed by the London blues for £71.6m making him the world most expensive keeper, just few weeks after Liverpool’s Allison Becker held the same title. What a relief that must be for the manager Maurizio sarri.
Chelsea then went the extra mile, to get something out of Thibaut Courtois’s deal with Mateo Kovacic moving to the opposite end on a season long loan. The Croatian who reportedly rejected a bid from Manchester united after claims he was unimpressed by the playing style of the manager may yet have the time to assess them when they go head to head, with the league to kick off in hours.
It’s not over yet, as reports claim the London blues may yet have to sign another, this time a winger. Manchester united are reportedly ready to break the bank to sign Willian for a sum of £80m, that’s a lot for Chelsea to reject giving the fact they just spent £71.6m on a goal keeper. Chelsea are bound to accept the deal this time, but have just a few hours to find themselves a replacement.
Few hours more and Chelsea suddenly come alive in the window to put themselves back as contenders for the premier league title with the season to kick off soon. Chelsea transfer deadline moves continues in full swing and the clock is ticking.
