Chelsea to submit €80m offer for La Liga star

Chelsea are once again looking to make major moves this summer.


Chelsea have spent over £600m in the previous two transfer windows, setting records for most money spent by a single club in both a summer and winter window.

However, the Blues are showing no signs of slowing down their spending in 2023.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing the Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong.

A report from Fichajes claims that Chelsea are now keen on signing the player and they are planning to launch an offer of around €80 million for him. Graham Potter wants to bring in midfield reinforcements and the Dutch international midfielder would be a superb acquisition.

Jorginho has left for London rivals Arsenal and N’Golo Kante is now past his best.

This leaves a pretty big gap in the Chelsea midfield to partner Enzo Fernandez.

However, Chelsea are likely to face competition for De Jong from Manchester United.

The Red Devils were heavily linked last summer but instead brought in Christian Eriksen on a free. And whilst the Dane was great before his injury, he is not really a long-term option.

Erik ten Hag is also a big fan of De Jong from their time at Ajax together, with a reunion of Lisandro Martinez, Antony and Ten Hag potentially appealing to the now Barcelona man.

Who has kept the most clean sheets in a single Premier League season?

Which club has Lionel Messi scored the most goals against?
