£75m Chelsea star link with disappointing move this summer transfer

Mauricio Pochettino to makes Barcelona star his first signing after unveiling as Chelsea manager

Chelsea defender Wesley Fofana was “recently offered” to Bayern Munich, according to Sport1‘s Chief Reporter Kerry Hau.

However, the German journalist claims the Bundesliga champions opted against making a move for the France international as he was “too expensive”:

It should be noted that Hau is usually pretty reliable so it is a big surprise to hear that Fofana has been offered up to other teams.

Chelsea have been actively trying to sell players, with five having been officially offloaded so far, with a number of others expected to follow soon. Even so, Fofana is not a name that has been mentioned as someone who could leave.

Fofana has only been at the club for a short period of time
The Frenchman made the switch from Leicester City last summer, with Chelsea paying £70m upfront, and another £5m in addons. It was seen as a sizeable fee for a player who was still only 21 and had his fair share of injury problems.

Concerns about his fitness were justified as Fofana missed 20 games last campaign, with the centre-back making only 22 appearances during his first season at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea need to keep Fofana
With Kalidou Koulibaly having left for Saudi Arabia, and Trevoh Chalobah tipped for a move to Inter Milan, the Blues could be left with just two right-sided centre-halves.

If we also take into account that Thiago Silva has a year left on his contract, it would make absolutely no sense to sell Fofana at this time. It will be hoped that the 22-year-old stays at the club.
