Raphinha while at Leeds United was Chelsea’s number one summer target and Leeds had agreed to Chelsea’s offer before the Brazilian opted out and choose to join Barcelona as the club was his boyhood dream.
Jules Kounde has been Chelsea’s potential target since 2021 and the blues finally made the offer to sign him from Sevilla in the last transfer window but Kounde accepted Barcelona’s offer.
However, Chelsea has qualified for the UCL round of 16 following their 2-1 win against Salzburg last night as Barcelona was eliminated tonight. This shows that both Raphinha and Kounde made mistakes by Joining Barcelona instead of Chelsea.
Bayern Munich compounded Barcelona’s problems by defeating them by 3-0 at Camp Nou tonight which summed up their awful performances as they crashed out of the UCL.
