The process of changing owners made it difficult for Chelsea transfer window in 2022. Many stars have been linked with the London team but no deals have been announced. It was not until mid-July that things gradually improved.
Up to now, The Blues have closed 3 rookies, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Gabriel Slonina. In addition, the Stamford Bridge team has also reached an agreement with Aston Villa to recruit young midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka. However, Chelsea still needs many extras for the rest of the transfer window, especially in defense.
Besides, talking about Chelsea transfer news, people will immediately think of the name Barcelona. The reason is that whenever the Stamford Bridge team targets someone, Barca will ‘catch’ the deal. Notable names can be mentioned such as Raphinha, Ousmane Dembele, and the latest Jules Koundé. In the afternoon, the Blues decided to let Romelu Lukaku return to Inter Milan on loan. The duo Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta are both receiving the attention of Barca and may leave shortly.
As said in the Chelsea latest transfer news above, the central defender is a “headache” for coach Thomas Tuchel. Antonio Rudiger has moved to Real Madrid, Andreas Christensen is said to have agreed to a personal deal with Barcelona and Cesar Azpilicueta is also on the Catalan side’s radar. Even defender Marcos Alonso can arrive at the Nou Camp.
Therefore, Chelsea will certainly strengthen forces in this area. Sevilla center-back Jules Koundé is expected to complete a move to Stamford Bridge on personal terms that have been agreed upon for some time. However, no official price has yet been given for the 23-year-old.
The long-term future of Jorginho and N’Golo Kante is yet to be decided. Both are out of contract next summer and there are no talks to extend until now.
Juventus has long been seen as a possible destination for Jorginho. Meanwhile, MU has been linked with Kante’s transfer, but their first choice of midfield target is Barcelona’s, Frenkie de Jong.
Serie A clubs are interested in Ruben Loftus-Cheek. No matter which team he chooses to play for, Loftus-Cheek has to lower his salary by 150,000 pounds a week. Conor Gallagher will be back after an impressive performance at Crystal Palace.
Benoît Badiashile’s €38 million, seven-and-a-half-year transfer from Monaco to Chelsea has been finalized.
After representing Les Bleus all the way up to the Under-16 level, the central defender has been a fixture in Ligue 1 for the past five seasons and recently made his professional debut for France.
Even though he won’t be 22 until March, Badiashile already has a lot of experience in Europe and the French top flight. He has played for Monaco in the Champions League and Europa League, totaling nearly 150 matches across all competitions.
Vasco da Gama’s talented Brazilian Andrey Santos is acquired by Chelsea.
Chelsea has completed the third winter signing after bringing in defender Benoit Badiashile for £34 million from AS Monaco and acquiring striker David Datro Fofana from Molde for £10.5 million.
Santos, 18, has since signed a long-term contract with the Blues after joining Vasco da Gama in Brazil.
According to The Athletic, a verbal agreement has been made between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid for Joao Felix to join on loan.
Although a contract has not yet been finalized, the Premier League team is anticipated to pay around €11 million (£9.68 million), which is less than what its La Liga rivals initially demanded.
Manchester United and Arsenal have shown interest, but Felix is planning to choose Chelsea because of their initiative.
The home page of Chelsea confirms that they have successfully recruited Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk for a fee of £89m.
After months of speculation, the future of Mykhailo Mudryk has finally been determined and he will be coming to London, but not to Arsenal, but to Chelsea. The Blues beat Arsenal to signing a transfer contract with Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Ukrainian player will be affiliated with the Stamford Bridge home team for a 7-year contract until 2030 with a reported fee of £89m ($109m). Upon joining Chelsea, Mudryk will wear the number 15.
Chelsea has announced the completion of the contract with Noni Madueke. PSV and Chelsea did not reveal the details of Noni Madueke’s transfer fee. However, according to Dutch and English media, The Blues had to pay PSV £35m for the 20-year-old midfielder’s services.
Noni Madueke developed from the training academies of Crystal Palace and Tottenham. In 2019, the young English player moved to PSV. A year later, Noni Madueke was promoted to the first team of the Dutch club and immediately made a big impression.
In 80 games for PSV, Noni Madueke scored 20 goals and had 14 assists. Due to his impressive performance, PSV gave him the number 10 shirt from the 2021-22 season.
Chelsea’s official website has announced that the club has secured right-back Malo Gusto from Lyon. The defender has signed a contract until 2030 with Chelsea but will be loaned back to Lyon for the 2022/23 season.
The Blues paid 30 million Euros for the transfer, excluding bonuses. Previously, Chelsea had already reached a personal agreement with Malo Gusto. After listening to Manager Graham Potter’s persuasive words, the 19-year-old player agreed to join Chelsea with a 6.5-year contract.
After much tireless effort, Chelsea successfully recruited “superstar” Enzo Fernandez from Benfica just before the January 2023 transfer window closed.
It seemed like Chelsea had given up on Enzo Fernandez due to Benfica’s stubborn attitude, but they surprisingly returned to this deal in the final days of the winter transfer season 2022/2023.
As a result, Chelsea successfully won and convinced Benfica to release the World Cup 2022 champion for a record-breaking 120 million euros. Thus, Enzo Fernandez will surpass Romelu Lukaku to become the most expensive player in Chelsea’s history.
Like previous newcomers under Todd Boehly’s era, Chelsea will sign a long-term contract with Enzo Fernandez, extending until the summer of 2031. This midfielder is on his way to London to complete the final procedures before his debut with The Blues.
