Least matches taken as a Captain to Win an IPL In the latest transfer news, Ousmane Dembele looks to complete his move to Chelsea as Barcelona forward is understood to have delayed a decision on his future until the sale of Chelsea FC was completed, according to reports.
Todd Boehly‘s first piece of business as the Blues’ new owner could be to sanction the transfer of French forward Dembele.
They state that Dembele is on the verge of an agreement with Chelsea. This has been backed up by 90min who have declared that the Blues are ‘quietly confident’ of securing his services
Since joining Barca from BVB in 2017, Dembele has scored 32 goals in 150 games, with injuries stifling his progress in Catalonia.
He was limited to just 21 Spanish top-flight outings during the 2021-22 season due to knee and hamstring issues.
But he still managed to chip in with 13 assists – the most of any player in LaLiga.
The Frenchman has long been linked with a move to Chelsea after contract talks appeared to have stalled between Dembele and his club back in January.
In the end, the 25-year-old opted to stay in La Liga, with SPORT reporting that he was, in fact, waiting for a move away in the summer.
As per Nick Purewal, Dembele is understood to have delayed making a decision on where his future lies in part until the sale of Chelsea Football Club was completed.
Following a long takeover story that has been ongoing since mid-March, Chelsea FC was officially sold to Todd Boehly Consortium for 4.25 Billion this week.
Now that the deal is complete, Dembele’s future may begin to unfold a little more clearly.
After having struggled to agree on a contract extension with Barcelona, it was recently revealed that Dembele will be leaving the Catalan club following his five-year spell at the Camp Nou.
With his contract up at the end of June, Dembele now has interest surrounding him from both Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, among others.
Chelsea FC are in the market for a forward player, with Dembele one of the players among the potential shortlist.
Should the club be serious about Dembele, who played under Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund back in the 2016/17 season, they will be eager to join the race for him – and with their transfer budget under new owner Todd Boehly, they could be in a good position to offer some serious money.
