PSG would be among the contenders for the signing of Wesley Fofana. Chelsea could, however, thwart Luis Campos’ plans. The Blues have large means for their recruitment and the player would be excited by the idea of joining them. Naples would retain a loan from Keylor Navas.
Sunday, The Team revealed that PSG had ticked the name of Wesley Fofana to strengthen their rear guard. Luis Campos would appreciate the profile of the Leicester player, whom his leaders refused to let go: the Foxes would have indeed set his price at 100 million euros, a price that scared even Paris. And competition from Chelsea should not help the Parisians to negotiate. Given the pressure put by financial fair play, the file is complicated.
Fofana would have validated the Chelsea project
According to Nathan Gissing, a member of Gianluca Di Marzio’s squad, the Londoners are well on their way to signing the defender. The journalist even specifies that the player is excited by the challenge they offer him. Only concern, Chelsea would not have yet transmitted an official offer. Discussions are said to be underway within it to find the best possible formula: Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be included in the operation. Social media observers were also able to note that Wesley Fofana had withdrawn “The City of Leicester” of his Twitter and Instagram profiles. A gesture that underlines his determination to leave Leicester, even if it means starting a showdown with his management.
PSG is looking to reduce its payroll. The Parisian club could in particular grant an exit voucher to Keylor Navas, by the end of the transfer window. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Naples still pinches for the Costa Rican. A problem there too: its leaders would not be ready to assume its emoluments. His coming to the Vesuvius club could involve a loan with partial payment of his salary by the Parisians. However, it is not obvious that this solution is completely pleasing to Parisian decision-makers. The file of the goalkeeper remains uncertain for the moment.
Wesley Fofana wants to join Chelsea, but hasn’t made an official offer yet.
As reported yesterday, Chelsea have been discussing internally the idea of using Ruben Loftus-Cheek in a deal, with Leicester keen to sign him. 🔵#CFC
