Chelsea are the most active team in the transfer market this summer. The Blues have already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner previously, with deals confirmed for Ben Chilwell and Malang Sarr recently. Chelsea are also expected to complete deals for Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz in no distant time.
The Blues will also try to sign a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga before the transfer window is over, in what would be a very spectacular transfer window for the West London club.
Chelsea are among the clubs to have been linked with Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who’s set to leave the club, after falling out with the club chiefs this past season.
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has categorically ruled out an audacious bid to sign Messi, and when asked why the likes of PSG and Man City could potentially fund a move for Messi and not Bayern, he told Tuttosport: “I’m not bluffing, I don’t really know.
“For me it would be like playing the lottery. There is very little money around.
“It’s true, Chelsea have already spent 250 million, but they have just returned from two transfer windows that saw them spend no money due to an embargo.
“At the time of the coronavirus pandemic it is not easy for any company. A rich owner is not enough. He must be very rich.”
