Chelsea target agent teases Turin exit as Abramovich approves pursuit of Tuchel left-back
Welcome to our football.london Daily roundup of CareFree Chelsea. Maybe not the first, we’ve certainly done transfer roundups before, and European roundups, so I guess in some ways it’s not that new at all.
Either way, we thought we were stepping into the soccer world in a wide and roundabout way for you and having fun with some of the everyday stories and legends.
De Ligt wants to leave Juve
Mina Raiola Target Chelsea agent Matthijs de Ligt in an interview with NRC revealed that the defender wants to leave Turin, “He is ready for a new stage” – “he thinks so too”.
Juventus may consider selling the 22-year-old they brought back from Ajax for Â£ 67.5million in 2019. Reports linking the Netherlands international to Chelsea have been plentiful, especially with the prospect of losing Antonio Rudiger at the end of the season.
Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta are the other three names in the defense who could potentially go free this summer.
Our opinion : Things are looking good for Chelsea if they can find someone young who can stake their future at Chelsea – a defender being their immediate priority.
Abramovich supports the pursuit of Hernandez
Chelsea are looking to strengthen in another area of ââtheir defense, with a link to left-back Theo Hernandez. El Nacional reported that Roman Abramovich backed Thomas Tuchel’s offer for the AC Milan player.
The report says the player who is the brother of Bayern Munich center-back Lucas Hernandez won’t be a cheap buy – valued at over Â£ 40million. But, the Chelsea owner‘s backing on a major bid could push the Blues to the front row for the 24-year-old.
Chelsea were on the hunt for a left-back after Ben Chilwell injured his knee against Juventus with Marcos Alonso set to return to the starting XI.
Our opinion : Yes Chelsea, please, we need reinforcements. Alonso is not going to cut him, even as a save option and after his brilliant start to the season …

Romain obtained European citizenship
Roman Abramovich was granted a Portuguese passport and citizenship of the European Union due to his Jewish heritage.
The wealthy oligarch withdrew his UK visa application after tensions between London and Moscow over the Salisbury poisonings according to a report by The Guardian.
It also meant the billionaire owner of Chelsea Football Club had put aside plans to rebuild the stadium, which would have cost Â£ 500million.
The EU passport will now allow the Russian to pass the UK points-based immigration system if he wishes to stay and work in the UK.
Our opinion : IIt will be great to see Roman return to Stamford Bridge to watch the games again.
