Source close to Chelsea owners with disrespectful comment about Brighton transfer negotiations

Posted by

A source close to the Chelsea ownership is reported to have made slightly disrespectful comments about transfer negotiations with Brighton as they worked on signing Moises Caicedo this summer.

The Ecuador international ended up getting his move to Stamford Bridge after a lengthy saga, and it followed Chelsea also raiding the Seagulls for Graham Potter and Marc Cucurella in the last year or so.

This meant the Blues were apparently very confident about signing Caicedo eventually, with The Athletic quoting an anonymous source close to Chelsea’s owners as saying: “We know what will happen; we just play the usual dance with Brighton and then we get the player.”

This comes across as pretty disrespectful and dismissive of Brighton, who will surely feel they’ve done quite well to get big money for so many of their star players in recent times, showing that they’re no pushovers in negotiations.

Moises Caicedo makes his Chelsea debut

CFC clearly felt they would always get their man eventually, though, and it will be interesting to see how these comments go down at Brighton and how it might impact future deals between the two clubs.

Caicedo was superb at Brighton but made a nightmare start on his Chelsea debut, conceding a penalty in the 3-1 defeat to West Ham.

  1. Dancing with brighton???, if CFC had paid the asking price of £100m to start with they could have saved themselves £15m.
    They are petulant and don’t like not getting their own way.
    They need to look at Chelsea as a TEAM. throwing money at their problems isnt solving them.

  2. Caicedo won’t be as good at Chelsea as he was at Brighton just like Cucurella Chelsea don’t play like Brighton If I have to eat humble pie I will but Brighton will still finish above Chelsea and hove Albion

  3. Typical Americans- want everyone to line up to kiss ass while they take what they want, god forbid anyone should dare hold out for what they think is right. Really going to love it when it all falls apart at CFC and the money goes running home
