Chelsea given Frenkie de Jong and Aubameyang transfer hint amid Tuchel’s Cristiano Ronaldo talk

 

Chelsea have been offered another update on their chase of Frenkie de Jong and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Blues would like to bring both players to Stamford Bridge this summer but financial troubles at Barcelona have made proceedings complicated and now de Jong has dropped his own small hint that a move might not be possible.

As for Aubameyang, Thomas Tuchel spoke about the player during his pre-match press conference ahead of a key match against Tottenham this weekend.

Tuchel’s Ronaldo message

Tuchel has told Chelsea fans that the club will not panic in the remaining weeks of the transfer window as Todd Boehly tries to handle the busiest period of the new ownership.

In Cristiano Ronaldo Chelsea still have a small chance to sign one of Europe’s best goalscorers, but given the lack of prior interest in the Portuguese forward, there might be a sense of panic about moving back in for the Manchester United striker. Whereas Wesley Fofana is a long-term target, Ronaldo is not and if Chelsea were to push for a move then it would go against the recent messages.

Fofana breakthrough

Foot Mercato report that Chelsea have made a key step towards signing Wesley Fofana after pushing an £80million offer that could start to speed up the deal. It is also reported that personal terms have been agreed for the 21-year-old with the Foxes now starting to look elsewhere for replacements.

The deal would put Fofana alongside Harry Maguire as the most expensive defender in the history of the game, but it would calm some of Tuchel’s nerves with plenty still to do before the end of the transfer window.
