Despite a clean defense since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea are looking for reinforcement in this sector for next year. Three names stand out and were checked by the residents of Stamford Bridge.
This Wednesday, despite an incredible domination of FC Porto, Chelsea managed without a hitch to win their quarter-final first leg of the Champions League thanks to two goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell. Thomas Tuchel had decided to opt for a three-way defense made up of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta. Thiago Silva, after his exclusion against West Bromwich Albion (2-5), was on the bench.
Because there will be the whole stake of this summer for the Blues: to form a defense, which has been lacking this season even if since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, if we except the disaster of last weekend, the residents of Stamford Bridge were intractable in defense. In today’s edition, Estadio Deportivo tells us that the London team have already ticked three pretty names in their defense.
The English are fans of Koundé
The first is the 25-year-old German international defender of Bayern Munich, Nicklas Süle, who was released during the first period on injury against Paris Saint-Germain (2-3), the second is the defender of Atlético de Madrid and international Uruguayan José Gimenez and the last, a very famous young Frenchman: Jules Koundé. The former Bordelais continues to impress under the colors of Sevilla FC and should not last long.
According to ED, Manchester United, who had been in battle for a long time, gave up on seeing the price claimed by the Andalusian club (around 80 million euros). A sum that obviously does not scare the team led by Thomas Tuchel, even if we imagine that the other two names mentioned above should cost a little less. Manchester City’s competition should not be overlooked either. Jules Koundé will have the choice!
