CFC transfer news: Chelsea to sign GK to keep star man happy, £40m striker talks underway, record bid snubbed

Posted by

Stamford Bridge will be the likely setting for a major transfer circus this summer.

With that in mind, we have rounded up the latest CFC transfer news.

We start with the reports that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has flown to France to personally scout Alvaro Morata in Euro 2016 action for Spain.

Abramovich is apparently keen to see Morata first hand, although The Telegraph claim that the big Blues boss has already begun transfer talks with Real Madrid regarding the 23-year-old.

Morata currently belongs to Juventus, but a buy-back clause is set to be activated by Real, who then plan to sell the wide forward for a tidy profit.

Real will reportedly pay Juve £23m for Morata, who could then cost Chelsea around £40m.

Chelsea are also considering a move for 49-year-old Italy goalkeeper coach Gianluca Spinelli, according to The Guardian, who suggest that the Blues are desperate to keep Thibaut Courtois happy.

Courtois has apparently fallen out with Chelsea’s current GK trainer, Christophe Lollichon, and club officials think that replacing him may help them make sure their Belgian star stays at Stamford Bridge.

Another man who Chelsea seem to want to keep at Stamford Bridge is 20-year-old Andreas Christensen.

Denmark international Christensen spent last season on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, who the Daily Mail claim are prepared to offer a club-record £18m to sign him permanently.

That bid will likely be rejected though, with The Mail reporting that Christensen is seen as natural successor to John Terry.
