Blues Fans react after Tuchel wants to bring £400-a-week superstar to Chelsea
Fans have had their say as to whether or not David Alaba would be a good signing for Chelsea in the summer.
Regarded as one of the finest left-backs in world football right now, has won countless trophies at Bayern, and a man that could walk into most sides in world football, Alaba is on the market for free in the summer.
He does not intend to sign a new contract at Bayern, despite the fact that they have offered him a new deal, and it seems that a move to La Liga or the Premier League will be the one that the defender makes, with Chelsea and Real Madrid the two clubs most keen on a deal.
But amid the speculation, Glen Johnson came out and told the club why they should sign Alaba, he said: ‘If they’re going to play with wing-backs he would be the ideal man because he’s an unbelievably good athlete and could play on the left of a back three or as a left wing-back.
‘Alaba could fit at Liverpool, but as we’ve seen with big-money defenders, Manchester City are the club that normally do that. If anybody needed him to slot into their formation right now that would be Chelsea.
“I don’t think he should be walking into a club where he’s the highest paid player. Because he’s out of contract I’m sure he’s trying to get a few big teams to come to the table and go to war over him.
‘I think every manager thinks differently and has their views on players that they prefer to sign. I think Tuchel will want to bring some players in and I think his number on target will be a striker, just like every team.’
But do Chelsea fans agree? we asked that question and got a response from fans as to whether or not he would be a good signing, here is what some of those fans had to say.
One fan said: ‘We love Chilwell, he was a brilliant signing, but how could you turn down the chance to sign Alaba?
another added: ‘One of the best in world football and a player that would cost £50 million to sign, the chance to sign him is there and considering we are struggling with left-backs at the club, he would be a world class signing’
Another put: ‘yes go get him….NOW!
