English football club Chelsea FC have been searching for a potential replacement for Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger, who left for Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively, and are no longer with the club.
Since the beginning of the transfer period, Manchester United has been associated with Frenkie de Jong, but the Red Devils have been unable to meet Barcelona’s selling fee. The Cataluyna team is apparently seeking €85 million, but the Red Devils are prepared to offer less.
The claim that Chelsea hijacked the transaction was, in fact, confirmed by BR Football. Jules Kounde, Nathan Ake, and Matthijs de Ligt have all been connected to the Stamford Bridge club.
