The chelsea intends to carry out a major reconstruction with the arrival of its new owners, who want to keep the team among the best in Europe and offer the greatest number of variants to Thomas Tuchel, who will remain in office despite the change in president due to his impressive work since his arrival a little over a year ago.
One of the main objectives of the club is to sign Declan Rice, one of the best players in the Premier League in recent years and a piece that would give the team’s midfielder a leap in quality before the possible departure of Jorginho. But the possibility of signing him is very low because West Ham United want more than 100 million euros to let him go, which makes it a very difficult goal to achieve.
Ibrahima Sangaré, Chelsea’s plan B in case they fail to sign Declan Rice
Faced with this scenario, Chelsea has several proper names on the table to be able to make a leap in quality in the midfielder area, taking into account the possible casualties in the summer. And one of the ones that Thomas Tuchel likes the most is Ibrahima Sangare.
The 24-year-old Ivorian midfielder is one of PSV’s stars this season and is called to make the quality leap to a more important team on the European scene. He has 4 goals and 4 assists in 48 games played in all competitions.
Ibrahima Sangaré likes Tuchel very much, who sees him as an important variant to offer rotation in the first line of midfielders. His contract ends in the summer of 2025 and is valued at 16 million euros, so it is a very low financial requirement, which seduces the club because they also want to strengthen other positions such as defense and attack.
