Chelsea face tough test in landing £50m-rated attacker this summer

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see their side sign Alexis Sanchez this summer…

The Chilean attacker has been on fire this season, but a contract dispute with Arsenal has left rumours swirling in the Transfer Tavern suggesting that he could leave the club this summer – with Chelsea reportedly interested.

However, it seems as though any move that Chelsea do make for Sanchez will not come easily – with AS reporting that Atletico Madrid, alongside a number of other clubs, remain interested in the Chilean attacker. Indeed, AS note that a stumbling block could come in the form of his €58 million (£50 million) transfer fee, but it seems as though Sanchez has no shortage of suitors.

This has come as a blow to the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, many of whom were dreaming of a front three of Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

Our landlord thinks that Chelsea could still hold the keys for Sanchez, given that he would be able to remain in London, but he fears that this saga may extend throughout the summer.
