Chelsea: Decision on Declan Rice Made, Anger Over Perisic’s Missed Transfer, and More

Declan Rice

West Ham United seem to have successfully scared off the Declan Rice’s potential suitors after it was revealed that Chelsea alongside both the Manchester clubs have decided to stand down in the summer. The Hammers had demanded for more than €150 Million for the defensive midfielder, effectively sending a strong message that they will not be selling the player in the summer unless their asking price is met. Accordingly, the three clubs have decided to wait until he becomes a free agent next summer so that they can make a move on him.

Rice was heavily considered for a spot at Chelsea and with Saul’s imminent return, he was touted to be the perfect replacement. Rice has always made it clear that he would love to return back to Chelsea but unfortunately recent circumstances have barred him from doing so.

Ivan Perisic

Ivan Perisic is just hours away from being confirmed as the new signing for Tottenham in the summer after a successful free swoop by the North Londoners. Perisic has agreed to join Tottenham on a 3 year deal and Antonio’ Conte has been credited for playing a big role in convincing the player to turn down Chelsea and play for him next season. Chelsea have definitely missed out on a big opportunity considering that Marcos Alonso is on the brink of joining Barcelona in the summer.

Fans have taken it out on Marina Granovskaia for not being quick enough in signing the Croatian winger. Going with how Chelsea play, Perisic would have made a perfect cover up for Marcos Alonso in the left wing. The deal is however off the table and Perisic is now their newest rival.

Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic is currently with the USA National team prepping for the international friendlies that will be played in the next few days. Playing the World Cup later in the year will definitely be a big deal for him and hopefully he gets the chance to fully exploit his potential. Many are praying that he turns out to be reliable.
