Koundé is 'free' for Chelsea

He can get 60 million in sale of discards and if he manages to convince Sevilla, the next step and the final icing on the summer would be the hiring of the French central.


Chelsea have not signed any footballers during this summer market. At least for now. The Champions League-winning club has the same faces as a year ago and, two weeks into the new season, Thomas Tuchel knows what the backbone of his team is. What the Stamford Bridge team have done over the last few weeks has been to collect money for sales, where most of them come from homegrown players who have already exceeded 60 million in profit for their team.If he gets enough money, and especially if he manages to convince Sevilla, the next step and the final icing on the summer would be the hiring of Jules Koundé, although the negotiations have not yet reached a point of agreement. A key footballer for there to be white smoke will be Kurt Zouma, whom Chelsea wants to include in the operation, although the defender prefers to stay in England where he has offers of up to 30 million to continue playing in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, the blues are filling their coffers selling players Tuchel doesn't have. For Fikayo Tomori, transfer to Milan, they have received 29 million euros. For Marc Guehi, who will play at Crystal Palace, they collected 21 million. Neither of them had a leading role in the first team last season ... and both come from the quarry.

In addition, the same case has occurred with the subsidiary, where there are already up to four casualties who have chosen destinations outside of Stamford Bridge to continue their projection: Lewis Bate (to Leeds for less than 2 million), Dynell Simeu (to Southampton for the same amount) and Peart-Harris (to Brentford). The most imminent case is that of Tino Livramento, designated as Chelsea's best young footballer last season, who will leave the club in the coming days: everything points to Southampton, in exchange for 5 million.

As if that were not enough, Chelsea has also found accommodation for two footballers who were not in the future plans: Victor Moses (to Spartak Moscow for 5 million) and Olivier Giroud (to AC Milan for a million). In total, there are more than 60 million that the Stamford Bridge complex intends to enter this summer.
