Chelsea summer signings
Chelsea FC Manager, Antonio Conte has been handed a whopping £240million to shop for players this summer to further bolster his squad, in preparation for the UEFA Champions League. The Premier League Champions have agreed on a £36.7million five-year deal with Monaco to sign its midfielder, Tiemoue Bakayoko. The 22-year old is set to arrive the English capital next week for his medicals.
Juventus last week rejected the bid for Alex Sandro but the wing-back has said told the club management that he wants to leave and has provisionally accepted terms. Hopefully, in the no distant time, a £61.2million deal will be agreed upon. Chelsea is also budgeting about £70million for Everton striker, Romelu Lukaku but his club is asking for some £10million more.
With the heart of the defense being a central defining point for Antonio Conte in the advent of John Terry’s departure, the Dutch star, and Southampton player, Vigil Van Dijk has been singled out to marshal it and his services will set Chelsea’s war chest back by another £60million.
