Chelsea ask to buy Fofana as Barca overtake Chelsea in Kunde case

After signing Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli, Kunde is manager Thomas Tuchel’s next priority to fill the centre-forward position following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen matter. However, Kunde’s move fell through when Spanish media revealed that the French star had agreed to a move to Barcelona.

Before the Kunde case lost to Barcelona, ​​Chelsea was overtaken by Bayern Munich and successfully recruited Juventus midfielder Mattis De Ligt.

Chelsea are considering a switch to Leicester midfielder Wesley Fofana after being unable to recruit Kunde and De Ligt. The 21-year-old Frenchman has come of age at Leicester following his £36.5million move from Saint-Etienne to the King Power Stadium in the summer of 2020.

The French Under-21 player signed a new five-year contract in March until 2027, which puts Leicester in an active position at the negotiating table. The King Power Stadium team are not ready to let Fofana go, but an offer of around £60m is sure to convince the Thai boss.

In addition to Fofana, Chelsea are also contacting Kimpembe (Paris Saint-Germain), Skriniar (Inter) and Josko Gvardior (RB Leipzig). However, those deals remain deadlocked as the hosts are reluctant to let players go or shout out exorbitant transfer prices.

West Ham sign Skamarca for £35.5m

West Ham have announced the signing of striker Gianluca Scamaka. The 23-year-old has signed a five-year deal with West Ham, with an option to extend it for a further 12 months. The Hammers agreed to pay Sassuolo £30.5m up front, plus £5m in fees. In addition, the Serie A representative will receive a 10% commission if West Ham sells Scamaca in the future.

As a result, Skamaka became the second most expensive rookie in West Ham history, behind Sebastian Haller (£45m). He is the Hammers’ fourth signing in the summer of 2022, following Nayef Agud, Alfonso Areola and Flynn Towns. Skamarca will wear the No. 7 shirt in London.

Last season, Skamarca was Sassuolo’s main striker, scoring 16 goals in 38 games in all competitions. Currently, West Ham do not want to stay in the 2022 summer market while chasing Lille midfielder Amadou Onana and Napoli’s Piot Zielinski.

Chelsea considering buying Harry Kane

Chelsea are said to be very interested in Tottenham striker Harry Kane after witnessing Lukaku’s departure this summer, and according to the Mirror, the Blues are ready to make a huge offer to welcome the England striker to Stamford Bridge this summer.

However, Tottenham’s offer for big men is quite tough, especially for someone with a strong personality like Levy, and it will not be easy to get Harry Kane’s services. As we all know, England’s No. 1 striker has only 2 years left on the contract with the “rooster”, which is also an excellent opportunity for big men such as Chelsea and Bayern to approach.

Coach Tuchel wants Chelsea to bring in four more rookies in the summer of 2022

The Blues added two players to their squad this summer in Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly. Sterling joined from Manchester City for £50m on a five-year contract. Meanwhile, Koulibaly joined Napoli on a four-year deal for £34.2m.

But it looks like Chelsea won’t be making just two recruits this summer. According to The Athletic, coach Thomas Tuchel wants to sign four more new contracts before the season starts.

In addition to bringing in rookies, Chelsea are also considering pushing away players who don’t contribute much. There are question marks over the futures of several Chelsea players, including Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

Werner made 61 appearances under Tuchel, scoring 14 goals and contributing 15 assists. However, he is currently mostly coming off the bench. The German striker is in the sights of Newcastle and former club RB Leipzig.

Meanwhile, Ziyech made 65 appearances under Tuchel, scoring 12 goals and providing 6 assists. The Moroccan player has attracted the attention of the three major Serie A giants AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus.

I don’t know whether to go or stay, Ronaldo’s jersey is still sold out

According to The Sun, the number of fans queuing up to buy Ronaldo’s jersey has not diminished despite the uncertain future of CR7. The shirts bearing his name are already sold out in the Manchester United store.

Currently, Ronaldo is discussing the future at the Carrington Centre. Returning with him is CR7 representative “Super Trigger” Jorge Mendes. Sir Alex is also said to be at Manchester United headquarters, apparently in connection with the Ronaldo case.

Ronaldo’s meaning is still very clear, that is, to leave Old Trafford this summer and find another club to participate in the Champions League. MU is ready to let Cristiano Ronaldo leave, but on the condition that it can only be rented, and CR7 is required to renew his contract.

Chelsea, Bayern, Paris Saint-Germain and most recently Atletico Madrid have all rejected Ronaldo. Therefore, in order to be able to meet their aspirations to play in the Champions League next season, CR7 may have to accept some lesser-known clubs, such as Sporting Lisbon, Napoli or Marseille.

At present, Cristiano Ronaldo has a one-year contract with Manchester United, with the option to extend it for another 12 months.
