The most recent Chelsea transfer rumours and gossip, including Deivid Washington, Eden Hazard, and Brennan Johnson updates.
Friday, August 25: Your morning Chelsea transfer roundup.
Chelsea has completed the acquisition of Deivid Washington from Santos, as the Blues remain active in the summer transfer window. In addition to completing a squad revamp, the club has completed a number of transfers.
Washington follows in the footsteps of Angelo Gabriel, who arrived from Santos and has now gone on loan to Strasbourg after joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side for pre-season in the United States. The 18-year-old lands at Stamford Bridge in a move worth over £17 million.
Position of danger
Following much conjecture over Eden Hazard’s future, it has now been disclosed where the 32-year-old sits nearly a year after leaving Real Madrid. Despite having a year left on his contract, the Spanish giants declared on June 3 that he would leave the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the month.
Since becoming a free agent, there has been much speculation over Hazard’s future, with some sites even suggesting that he retire. However, it appears like the Belgian will have plenty of options as he prepares for the upcoming season.
This summer, the winger has already turned down offers from six different teams as he weighs his options. AlsanawI responded hilariously to a comment alleging that ‘no one wants to sign Hazard‘ under a video of him having his haircut: “that’s funny, he’s rejected 6 teams.” *emoji of a laughing face.
