Chelsea get huge boost in transfer chase for £68m Rudiger replacement

Chelsea seem to have been given a significant boost in their long-running quest for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

Sportvectru comprehends that the French international remaining parts a key transfer focus at Stamford Bridge, where an impressive defends rebuild will be required this mid year whenever limitations are lifted and the offer of the club by Roman Abramovich is completed.

Thomas Tuchel affirmed after Sunday’s 1-0 Premier League winning over West Ham that Antonio Rudiger would leave Chelsea on a free transfer this summer – reasonable for Real Madrid – after rejecting the chance to become the highest-paid defender in club history on £230,000 a week, with the sanctions imposed on Abramovich by the UK Government leaving them unable to “fight any more”

It is the same story for Danish centre-back Andreas Christensen, who is expected to join Barcelona when his own Blues contract expires in June.

Chelsea’s new owners are likely to be left footing an immediate transfer bill of at least £100million once an expensive buyout of Abramovich is complete in order just to compensate for the loss of two influential defenders, before they can even think about trying to strengthen further and narrow the gap to Manchester City and Liverpool above.
