Club ‘make decision’ on Chelsea swap deal for center-back as the Blues complete another summer transfer deal

Published

on

Real Madrid have decided they’re not interested in a swap deal with Chelsea regarding the possible exit of Raphael Varane, it has been claimed.

The Blues are determined to beat Manchester United to the player’s signature. But, while that’s the case, a move to Stamford Bridge appears unlikely.

Real Madrid star Varane has won the lot during his time at the Bernabeu, scooping four Champions League titles and three La Liga crowns.

But a move away from the Spanish capital could now be on the cards, with Chelsea and Manchester United both keen on the 28-year-old.

Varane’s contract at Madrid is winding down, with his current deal due to expire next summer.

That means Los Blancos must sell him now to ensure they get a good fee for the player or risk losing him for nothing in 12 months’ time, a situation they’re understandably eager to avoid.

And Defensa Central have claimed Real aren’t interested in a swap deal with Chelsea, instead only wanting a fee in the region of £43million to let their prized asset go.

It’s claimed that Real Madrid chiefs don’t want Timo Werner in exchange, despite Carlo Ancelotti earmarking the Germany international as a potential target.

So, instead, it’s their main aim to secure a fee for Varane.

Chelsea complete another summer transfer deal.

Chelsea defender Levi Colwill has completed a loan move to Huddersfield Town for the season to come after signing a new contract at Chelsea.

The centre back has looked excellent in the youth teams for years now, and this season in particular looked to have raised his profile significantly and convinced teams in the second tier he’s ready to start senior football at that level.

Levi Colwill has also signed a new four-year contract at Chelsea before being sent out on loan to the Championship. #CFC https://t.co/dLrPvTUlgc

It’s a big vote of confidence in Colwill and his abilities, as well as a further endorsement of the Chelsea academy system, which is now just printing out Championship level teenagers at an astonishing rate.

In 5 years time, it’s  scary to think how many of them could be playing in the Premier League or top flights across Europe.

Let’s hope Levi can have the same success that Marc Guehi has had in the same division with Swansea this season.

Setting himself up for a Premier League move in the near future – and potentially even a place in Chelsea’s squad.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
