Chelsea: Thiago Silva on Azpilicueta’s Transfer, Cobham Minting Money for Club, and More

Thiago Silva

Chelsea’s captain Cesar Azpilicueta has been linked with a move to Camp Nou but recent reports have disclosed that the Spaniard is intending to delay the transfer a little bit longer so that his situation with Chelsea is cleared. At Chelsea, the club is planning on handing him a new deal extending over two years and it is believed that staying at Stamford Bridge is currently the player’s priority. Thiago Silva has said that having Cesar Azpilicueta has been a blessing for the club, not to mention his effective leadership skills that make the team as strong as it is.

“Cesar is one of the kindest people I know. He has always been a friend of mine since day one. Even when I’m disappointed he always gives me a shoulder to cry on. His leadership in the dressing room and on the pitch is one of the admirable qualities about him. I hope he stay for the sake of the club.”

Academy Success

Chelsea’s Academy has been credited for producing some of the finest talents in the Premier League as well as across Europe. From Mason Mount, Conor Gallagher, Jamal Musiala to the sensational Tammy Abraham, Chelsea’s Cobhma clearly has a lot of quality players to brag about. These talents have not only elevated the club’s reputation, they have also contributed a lot in balancing the club’s financial books.

€175 Million has reportedly been sourced from the Academy by selling some of their products, with the latest being Tammy Abraham to AS Roma and also the highest record transfer for their Academy products. Currently, there are a few players who are the culling list from the Academy, and Chelsea will be planning to use their transfer fees to recruit other players in the senior team.

Kai Havertz

Kai Havertz is having the best time of his career at Chelsea and things are expected to get even better in the few months when the Premier League returns. Many are eager to know whether Lukaku’s exit will increase the 23 year old’s playing time and if so, will he still play as a false number nine, or as the ideal center forward?
