‘Penny pinching at its best’ – These Chelsea fans slam the board after failure to land Sevilla’s Jules Kounde

Posted by

With 12 hours left of the summer transfer window, Chelsea’s supporters have taken to social media to blast the club’s board for being unable to get a deal over the line.

Clearly, many of them have very short memories, given that the west Londoners only recently tied up a deal for Inter marksman and former blue, Romelu Lukaku.

After having let centre-back, Kurt Zouma, join London rivals, West Ham United, it was expected to be a foregone conclusion that the club would acquire Sevilla’s highly-rated Frenchman, Jules Kounde.

However, a strong negotiating stance from the Andalusian’s sporting director, Monchi, has seen the move almost certainly break down.
