Chelsea to receive £18m fund boost after Eden Hazard won the Liga title with Real Madrid
Chelsea have banked a massive £18million after Eden Hazard won the Liga title with Real Madrid on Thursday night, according to Sports Ration.
the two clauses in the deal that took Eden Hazard to Real Madrid last summer could reportedly help Chelsea fund a move for pending transfer which included clauses that would be triggered if Los Blancos won La Liga or qualified for next season’s Champions League.
The Blues, who received £88m up front for Hazard, are due to receive £14m after Los Blancos qualified for next season’s Champions League and a further £4m for winning the title.
Chelsea have already spent big on Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, but according to Sports Ration, the London giants are set to receive a cash windfall.
The Blues continue to be linked with Havertz, and the Germany international has allegedly signalled that he wants to join Frank Lampard’s side ahead of Manchester United and Real Madrid this summer.
Frank Lampard will welcome the boost to his kitty as Chelsea chase Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, a centre-back and a goalkeeper.
Chelsea set to battle with Manchester City over defender Nicolas Tagliafico deal
Chelsea are reportedly prepared to battle Manchester City for the signature of Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico during this summer’s transfer window.
The 27-year-old recently suggested that he would be on the move ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, and a number of clubs are believed to be interested in his services.
Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have previously been strongly linked with the Argentina international, while a recent report claimed that Man City were also in the hunt for his signature.
However, according to The Sun, Chelsea are also interested in the South American as they weigh up alternatives to Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell, who could be priced out of a summer move.
Tagliafico, who scored five times and contributed seven assists in 38 outings for Ajax during the 2019-20 campaign, could allegedly be available for around £22m in the upcoming market.
Frank Lampard’s side are said to be seeking a new left-back as Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri continue to be linked with exits.
Antonio Conte pushing Inter Milan board for N’Golo Kante transfer funds
Antonio Conte reportedly faces a difficult challenge to convince Inter Milan officials to finance a move for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.
Despite Inter sitting in second position in the Serie A table, Conte is expected to make more changes to his first-team squad during the next transfer window.
That could allegedly lead to an approach being made for Kante, who helped Conte win the Premier League title with Chelsea during 2016-17.
However, according to Sport Mediaset, club officials may not be prepared to pay Kante’s wage demands, as well as a transfer fee in the region of £60m.
Although the report suggests that Kante is open to taking on a new challenge, such a financial outlay for a 29-year-old who has had his injury problems may not appeal to Inter’s board.
The World Cup winner has been restricted to 24 starts and two substitute outings in all competitions this season.
