Now that the international competitions are over, the summer transfer business will be more transparent as teams including Chelsea look to strengthen their squad. So far, the Blues have been quiet in this summer’s business, although they have been linked with major stars.
Hence, in today’s transfer round-up, we provide you with the latest transfer possibilities to and out of Stamford Bridge this summer.
As per some reliable sources, Chelsea are preparing a mammoth £150m offer for the Borussia Dortmund striker. However, Manchester City are also in the race, but their bid is reportedly set to be less than what Chelsea can offer.
Petr Cech is reportedly pushing Chelsea’s interest in the brightest young star of his former club Rennes. But Man United are understood to be the frontrunners, though the Blues have already successfully dealt with the French club over Edouard Mendy’s transfer in January.
According to Fabrizio Romano Chelsea have a strong interest in the West Ham midfielder. While Rice has declined two contract offers from his current club, securing a deal to bring him back to Stamford Bridge will not be a straightforward one, though.
Diario Sport, a Catalan media outlet claims that Chelsea have emerged as favorites to sign the Frenchman as Barcelona are looking to trim their wage bill. However, there are no reliable reports from the British media at this point, and it does not make much sense for the Blues to sign another attacker.
According to BBC, the veteran striker is set to complete his £1.8m move to AC Milan by the end of this week. Olivier Giroud will sign a two-year deal with his new club.
