Chelsea have broken their own transfer record, with the signing of 21year old Wesley Fofana from Leicester City for a club a record fee of £75 million plus addons, that is expected to amount to £87M.
The signing of defender Wesley Fofana breaks the transfer record of a defender that Manchester united held after signing Harry Maguire for £80M from the same team. Wesley Fofana who handed in a transfer request to Leicester City, is posed to complete his move to Chelsea this weekend after Chelsea reached a verbal agreement with Leicester Fc for his transfer.
Fofana who can play as a center back is going to be the third defender bought by Chelsea following the signings of Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli and Marc Cucurella from Brighton Hove Albion. Currently, Wesley Fofana has been demoted to the under-23 after Brendan Rodgers deemed his mentality not right for the team, he said.
“For me it’s about the commitment and when the players are ready to commit to the ethos of the team. If they are not in the right frame of mind then we have to move. The window will shut and then things will become clearer” Brendan Rogers chirped.
