Guardian: Chelsea in the market for a wing-back but Milan star is too expensive

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea are in the market for a new wing-back as Ben Chilwell needs an operation on an anterior cruciate ligament injury, a report clams.

The Guardian reports how Chilwell has been out since he suffered the knee injury against Juventus last month and they believed that he would make a swift recovery after returning to light training, but he was then stopped by Covid and has now learned that the problem requires surgery.

That is why Thomas Tuchel is looking for some cover and it seems Lucas Digne of Everton is on the list, but the report also mentions an interest in Milan’s Theo Hernández who has played as a left wing-back for the French national team since earning a call-up.

However, the source admit he would be ‘expensive and difficult to sign at this stage of the season’ meaning it does not seem like a realistic option for them at present.

  1. Chelsea or other teams it’s all down to Elliot and the disastrous Gazidis it’s not right losing Kessie for 2 million difference as free transfer will be habit in the club it’s too strange you make players grow in your club and let them leave for free to other big clubs whom they have big budget , it’s understandable the Dolla-Roma and stupid Turkish players were not loyal but for business wise sign Kessie for other 4 years then sell him even 20 million make sense for business

    1. No it does not make any sense. You don’t understand some basics obviously. If you give him a big contract do you think Hernandez will sign for 3.5 or 4M? Leao? I can go on. Signing a 1-2M bigger contract per player is about 5-10M for the contract duration. Giving it to 3 players already gets you to understand that it doesn’t “make sense for business”, less costs in the long term make more sense.

      1. Iam talking about Milan not small club will afraid of bankruptcy. This Elliot policy is wrong and fake as you can not have away your best player just to add more money
        I will explain to you some thing as obviously you donot understand the risk of the owner business operation take Kessie as an example if you give 8 it means 16 in 4 years it’s equal 64 million these days to buy new excellent player like Kessie you need minim 60 millions so can you see the calculation how it should be losing on the quality and money and effect the team build up and future
