Failed with Luka Jovic, Chelsea switch focus to David Neres
Amid the embargo sanctions scandal facing Chelsea at the moment, it is rumored they are eyeing a magical young man belonging to Ajax Amsterdam, David Neres. The Blues’ interest is based on their failure to bring Luka Jovic, who prefers to join Real Madrid next season.
Ajax players have always been the prima donna of the season, their achievement in the Champions League semi-finals, is one of the reasons why European elite clubs are eager to hijack a single player from the Dutch club. Although he is still young, but this choice is good as a future project.
The name of Neres himself became one of the players who were the most noticed by big European clubs. The 22-year-old player has become one of the keys to the sharpness of the Ajax attacking line, which has successfully scored 119 goals in the Dutch Eredivisie this season.
Chelsea were very hopeful that this embargo case that was ready to be issued by FIFA was revoked. In their action, Chelsea have done various ways and one of them is to appeal to the Sports Arbitration Board (CAS).
In the midst of the answer process from CAS, Chelsea continued to make hunting trips to bring in new players. Now the latest news says that the Blues are struggling to bring Neres to leave London.
The possibility of getting the player is very big, moreover Chelsea have a good relationship with the player’s agent, Giuliano Bertolucci and Kia Joorabchian. The agent also holds control of the career of Chelsea defender, David Luiz.
Neres is a Chelsea purchase option that is expected to replace Eden Hazard if he leaves Real Madrid. If we dissect the quality and position of both teams, then Neres is quite appropriate to replace Hazard’s position playing on the right or left winger.
Chelsea themselves have been confirmed to bring Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund. This US player is predicted to be a little slower to enter Chelsea’s main squad next season. Meanwhile, Gonzalo Higuain in the claim will be returned to Juventus.
On the other hand, the figure of Alvaro Morata who was on loan at Atletico Madrid, seemed to have no intention of returning to Stamford Bridge. Referring to the front position, it can be predicted that the position will be filled by Tammy Abraham, who will return from the loan period at Aston Villa.
Apart from the Chelsea mission to bring in new players in the transfer market next season, now Maurizio Sarri’s team is targeted to become the Europa League champions this season, by having to win over Arsenal in the final later.
