Chelsea, which invested close to 1 trillion won in the transfer market last summer and this winter to buy players, is in the midst of organizing the squad as soon as the transfer market opens this summer.
While five or six players who have been pushed back from the starting competition have already sold or are planning to be sold to Saudi Arabia, German national team member Kai Havertz, who played as a key striker in the 2022/23 season, is also moving to sell to Arsenal. Midfielder Nikola Kovacic is also likely to go to Manchester City. Midfielder Mason Mount is being sent a love call by Manchester United.
In the UK, the atmosphere of seeing the connection between Chelsea and Saudi Arabia is very unique. In particular, four clubs owned by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, Al-Ittihad, Al-Hilal, Al-Nasr and Al-Ahli, are contacting to sell the players.메이저사이트
Here, Arsenal is trying to take the left-footed Havertz with the recommendation of legendary striker Thierry Henry, and Manchester City and Manchester United highly value Kovacic and Mount, respectively. There is also a sense of anticipation.
If so, how much will Chelsea collect from selling them?
Summing up the reports or tweets of influential British newspapers such as the Daily Mail and The Telegraph, and transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea is expected to be able to recover about 180 million pounds, or about 300 billion won in our money. Compared to the 1 trillion won spent in the past year, the difference is not small, but it is still quite a lot of money.
First of all, N’Golo Kante, who followed Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema to Saudi Arabia, was sent without a transfer fee.
However, goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and defender Kalidu Koulibaly, whose transfers to Al-Ahli and Al-Hilal are imminent, are different. British media observe that the combined transfer fee will be 34 million pounds.
Here, Hakim Ziyesh, who is scheduled to head to Al Nasr, the same team as Ronaldo, is being discussed for a transfer fee of £8 million.
Players who go to Premier League rival teams are expected to pay even more hefty transfer fees. The transfer fee for Havertz is being discussed around 60 million pounds, and Chelsea is determined to get at least 50 million pounds from Manchester United even in the case of Mount, who has been pushed back from the main competition.
Man City beckoned Kovačić to set a reasonable transfer fee of £25 million. Here, Havertz, Mount, and Kovacic are also attached with an additional transfer fee option of £5 million each, depending on their future performance. The British press believes that the sum of all these will be 180 million pounds.
Of course, Chelsea are not sitting on their hands this summer. In the 2022/23 season, German Bundesliga scorer Christopher Nkunku paid a transfer fee of nearly 90 billion won and brought it from Leipzig, Germany. It is drawing a new picture by sending high-income earners to Saudi Arabia, etc., and making appropriate investments at the same time.
