Blues fans to welcome World Cup winning defender to the Bridge after Chelsea agree two-year contract

Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng at the end of the season on a potential two-year deal

It is no secret that that back-line of Chelsea will be an area of the pitch that Thomas Tuchel will look to improve at the end of the season, as he did not have enough time to solve that issue in the January window.

And it has been claimed on Spanish publication Todofichajes that Chelsea fans will welcome the addition of Boateng to the squad, when the current season finishes in just a few months time.

The report claims The Blues have finalised a deal in principle with the 32-year-old’s agent, and he is now set to move to Stamford Bridge on a free transfer when his contract expires in the summer.

Boateng, who has previously played in the Premier League with Manchester City, has featured in 17 Bundesliga games for Bayern this term, but has not been able to agree a new contract at the club, leading to all sorts of speculation on his future.

Look, if the reports are true and Chelsea have got an agreement in place that sees Boateng make the move to the premier League, it will be a good short-term buy, but not a long-term solution.

He only has a few years left at the very top of the game, so if he does arrive, Chelsea fans will not be expecting him to stay for more than two seasons, maybe not even one.

Tuchel knows what type of players he wants, but he will still need to delve into that transfer kitty and sign a more long-term defender.
