Chelsea have been encouraged to sign Kylian Mbappe in the upcoming transfer window. The 23- year-old was heavily linked with an exit from Paris Saint-German earlier this month amid speculation that he felt betrayed by the club amid a handful of broken promises. Speaking to Fair Betting Sites, former Blues defender Frank Leboeuf said:
“When I heard Mbappe saying he doesn’t see his future at PSG I thought there’s nothing stopping Chelsea from going all out to try and bring him to Stamford Bridge. If he wants to leave PSG, Boehly could slap £100million on the table and say ‘Take it or leave it’, because nobody else realistically is going to buy him.
“People say Real Madrid but they’ve got [Karim] Benzema up top and Vinicius Jr on the left and Rodrygo on the right and they’re on fire so I can’t see him going there right now.”
Henry endorses Gvardiol move
Theiry Henry has sung the praises of Chelsea and Tottenham target Josko Gvardiol following the defender’s impressive display against Real Madrid in the Champions League. The 20-year-old netted the opening goal in RB Leipzig’s 3-2 win over the Spanish giants as he continues to grow into one of Europe’s most exciting young talents.
Speaking on CBS Sports, the former Arsenal forward labelled Gvardiol as a ‘rare breed’ of centre-half. The Croatia international was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer but, after penning a five-year extension with the German giants late into the window, a move failed to materialise.
“It’s a rare breed to have a centre-back with a left foot,” Henry said. “What I like is, and you have to give credit to Croatia and Dinamo Zagreb. They produce players at will. He’s strong. An eye for a pass.
“Chelsea wants him and I can name a lot of teams. He’s good at defending and he’s good in the air on set-pieces, but more importantly, if you are a left-footed centre-back, then suddenly people come for you.”
