Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are desperately hoping that the club can invest in some signings during the summer transfer window, as the Blues’ squad is in need of some desperate improvements.
The Blues are in a spot of bother after suffering back-to-back defeats in the Premier League, results that have only gone and put their potential Champions League spot in jeopardy. Indeed, it’s been well known that Antonio Conte and Roman Abramovich’s relationship is rather non-existent, with transfer decisions often being down to the choices of the owner himself. And, summer moves already look to be in the pipeline, as according to reports in the Don Balon, Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio prefers a move to Chelsea, with the Blues preparing a summer bid for the Spaniard.
The Real Madrid midfielder is reportedly fed up of his limited amount of chances at the Bernabeu, and has alerted a number of clubs about his desire to move. But, it looks as if Chelsea have the upper-hand in bringing the highly-rated Spanish international to Stamford Bridge, a move that would certainly be a step in the right direction for the Blues.
Having not started a fixture under manager Zinedine Zidane since December, the Real Madrid midfielder has become heavily out of favour in the Spanish capital, as his early season magic looks to be a distant memory for Los Blancos. Although, this may not prove to be the most ideal of openings for the London club with a potential swap deal being in the offing, as their star man Eden Hazard has recently had contact with Madrid president Florentino Perez to press his claims for a transfer.
The Real Madrid midfielder was only of the most in-form players in world football towards the start of the season, so having shown that he can do it on one of the world’s biggest stages will only go to benefit Chelsea. Indeed, with Eden Hazard’s future possibly being decided by the current crisis at the Bridge, Asensio may prove to be the replacement for the Belgian international.
