FIFA fine Mbappe as chelsea first signing announce in France
Christopher Nkunku is all but a Chelsea player, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano. The Frenchman had a precautionary medical earlier this year, shortly after the summer window, and has been near the top of the agenda for Todd Boehly ever since. The new owners haven’t been put off by the change of manager and have moved to reach a pre-agreement with RB Leipzig.
The 25-year-old is currently injured and was withdrawn from France’s World Cup squad following a knock sustained one week before their tournament kicked off. Although it appears that the exciting forward won’t be joining in January, a deal to sign him has now been agreed, Romano says, and he will be a Blues player in 2023.
FIFA could fine Mbappe
With three goals, two wins and a passage safely into the knockout stages of the World Cup – as well as already having a winners medal for the biggest prize in football – Kylian Mbappe is literally on top of the world. The Frenchman is expected to leave the club next year though and his relationship with Paris Saint- Germain has soured in recent months, especially after a dream move to Real Madrid appears off the cards. Mbappe is now a target for Chelsea as well as other sides, but he could be fined after refusing to answer questions following matches.
Chelsea will face a battle to sign Declan Rice from West Ham over the summer according to The Telegraph’s Matt Law . The Blues are interested in bringing the 23-year- old back to Stamford Bridge and he is expected to leave the club over the summer, but Law doesn’t think Chelsea are sitting at the front of the queue currently. Speaking to the London is Blue Podcast , he said,
“”Rice. He will definitely, definitely leave West Ham at the end of this season, I am 100% confident on that. West Ham are preparing to sell Declan Rice, I think it’ll be about £70m. Chelsea aren’t actually in pole position to sign Rice, there are two other clubs that have made big plays to sign him.”
