The utterly endearing rumor mill of Chelsea’s apparent approach to a scramble setting in current affairs, with the Blues looking high and low for targets, plots to plan, considerations to consider and weights to weigh.
The Mega Millions lottery in the United States runs close to a billion dollars (that’s a “billion” billion), so we’re all spinning the wheel and seeing what happens next.
So here we go… spin spin… aaaand, Wesley Fofana! estate!
Fofana is a household name for Chelsea rumors fans, with the 21-year-old having been repeatedly linked in the past two years. Last summer, those links were suddenly severed when he fractured his leg in a pre-season match, while two summers ago he opted to join Leicester City when he made his big transfer from AS Saint-Etienne. He signed a new five-year agreement with the Foxes in the spring, which was supposed to secure his long-term future, but according to the Post, we are now “considering testing” that assumption.
Although he missed the entirety of last season due to the aforementioned injury, Fofana made an excellent start to the 2020-21 season and certainly looks like a real bargain. Of course, any ‘planning’ and ‘testing’ of the ‘Leicester City design’ we might do would have to be proportional to all of that, That is 70 million pounds sterling, if not more. “Very difficult,” indeed.
on me #CFC Links with Wesley Fofana. It is very difficult to get this window sold. Brendan Rodgers doesn’t want to lose him. #LCFC He will not even accept offers under £70m and his price could be higher. There is no approach to #LCFC Until now. Fofana signed a long-term contract only in March… pic.twitter.com/hVCOQLfwSX
