Chelsea to spend £125m on their next three summer signings – report
Chelsea are set to spend as much as £125m on securing their three new summer signings, say reports
Chelsea are set to spend as much as £125m on signing Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudgier and Alex Sandro this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the west London side are ready to kick off their summer spending spree, after having not yet confirmed any new deals.
The same report claims that a £35m deal for Monaco midfielder Bakayoko is still being finalised, and that the Blues have agreed to sign defender Rudiger for £30m from Roma.
The article also claims that the west London side will then step up negotiations with Juventus for £60m-rated full-back Sandro at the beginning of next week.
And that could take their outlay for the three players to more than £125m.
Chelsea are likely to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Antonio Conte prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first campaign at the club following his appointment as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor last summer.
However, the Blues missed out on FA Cup glory when they were beaten by Arsenal in the final at Wembley back in May.
