Chelsea offer €75m for Wesley Fofana!

What happens after this announcement?

Chelsea are desperate for a centre-back and are willing to do anything to get one. And if it’s French, it’s even better. Battered in the case of Jules Koundé and now less interested in the track of Presnel Kimpembe, the English club backed down on Wesley Fofana. The Leicester player has been a long-time favorite but comes at a very high price. No matter, the Blues have the money and want to spend it.

The team indicates in its columns this morning that they have taken steps proposing a first offer of 75 M€! But Leicester are not to be intimidated. The Foxes are not lacking, even if their transfer window is not progressing, and they have flatly rejected this attack. They are not the seller of this file and have not even tried to negotiate for a better deal. They simply refused tit for tat.

Leicester didn’t even try to negotiate

“No, it’s not for saleBrendan Rodgers had already explained a few days ago. When we looked at him, he had started 17 league games. Everyone looked up to him back then, but he came here, blossomed and really developed, not just as a player, but as a young man. (…) He has a lot of respect for the club and I have no doubt that in the future he will be at this higher stage, but he is very comfortable, he feels good here.

So the trend is confirmed but probably not over. Chelsea still need two centre-backs, having lost Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger this summer. It is not impossible that he will quickly return to the position, only Fofana is interested in other big clubs, such as Manchester City and PSG. Will the French break the record of Harry Maguire, the most expensive defender in the world sold by Leicester (87 M€) to Manchester United in 2019? It is not possible…
