Blues to sign Madrid £400 a-week forward, Abramovich approves £100m summer deal, as Chelsea boss wants PSG creative midfielder
Chelsea keen on to sign Real Madrid £416,000 a-week forward
Chelsea are reportedly keen to re-signing Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard back to Stamford Bridge.
The Belgium international represented the West London club between 2012 and 2019, founding back of the nets 110 times in 352 games for the capital heavyweights before joining the Los Blancos in a big-money move.
The 30-year-old has failed to make his mark at Santiago Bernabeu, though, managing just four goals and seven assists in 35 games, while he has struggled with a number of muscular problems.
Belgium international forward could be out until March with his latest issue, and ex-Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov recently urged Los Blancos to sell the Belgian in the nearby future before his price tag falls more.
According to Defensa Central, the Blues would be interested in re-signing the Belgian forward, however, would only be prepared to pay in the region of €50m (£44m).
Hazard penned a five-year contract with the Spanish champions upon his arrival and therefore still has more than three years left on the deal that helps him to earn £416,000 per week.
The Belgian has only managed three goals in 13 games for Zinedine Zidane’s side this campaign, however, has featured in each of their last five La Liga games.
Abramovich approves move for $100m+ World-Class European player to Chelsea
Russian billionaire and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has given the greenlight for the Premier League club to pursue prolific Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland, according to reports.
Haaland has scored 27 goals in 25 appearances across all competitions thus far this season, and he is one of the most sought-after forwards in European football.
According to German-language publication Bild, Chelsea owner Abramovich has now personally approved a move for Haaland to give the team a boost ahead of next season.
Haaland is currently valued at in excess of $100 million, though his release clause is believed to be around the $90 million mark.
According to Haaland’s high-profile agent, Mino Raiola, there is a lot of interest in the Norwegian youngster.
“Only a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy [Haaland] and give the platform you would like after you’ve been in Dortmund… and four of those clubs are in England,” Raiola said.
Chelsea new boss plans to sign PSG creative midfielder
Chelsea new manager is fancying a raid on his former club PSG in the pursuit of Kays Ruiz-Atil. The promising midfielder is touted as one of the most talented footballers in the PSG academy that has produced a host of quality footballers in recent years.
Although Kays is a long way off from being a first-team regular at PSG, the teenager had notably made seven league appearances under Tuchel this campaign. Since the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino, however, the ex-Barcelona academy footballer has been on the fringes, with a switch to Chelsea seemingly a possibility.
Ruiz-Atil’s move to Chelsea could be a logical one. Kays shares a good relationship with Tuchel, who isn’t afraid to provide opportunities to teenagers at the highest level of football. It was particularly evident during his time at Borussia Dortmund.
At Chelsea, the 18-year-old midfielder could compete with another young midfield prodigy in Billy Gilmour for a more prominent place in the first-team.
It remains unclear how Thomas Tuchel plans to utilise the talent of the young Scot, but he could certainly use the services of Kays, whose ability to carry the ball around half-spaces should tune in perfectly with the German’s tactical philosophy.
In addition to his quality on the ball, the Frenchman can offer more mobility in midfield while his tendency to work in more central areas of the pitch also appeals to Tuchel. It all adds up to an interesting target for Blues this summer and that too for a free transfer possibly making Kays an absolute bargain as we towards the second half of the season.
