Williams announcement made, Mbappe and Haaland to improve the squad and Williams delighted with move in Chelsea roundup…
Derby have announced that Chelsea have signed exciting left-back Dylan Williams.
Chelsea have been in the transfer headlines alot over the past few months with much speculation about the kind of players that Thomas Tuchel will bring to the club in order to improve his squad.
It has been no secret that a new left-back is wanted at the club, and many fans have been excited to see just what top-class defender would be brought in, especially with some big names linked.
But fans who believe that Williams will be put into that first team will have to think again, as the teenager is unlikely to be making an immediate impact on the Chelsea first team and will probably go into the Under-23 squad in west London.
The 18-year-old left-back has made just eight first team appearances for the Rams, six of which have come in the Championship, but has clearly done enough to catch the eye of the Premier League giants, who may believe he is a player for the future
Announcing the news on Monday morning, Derby said in a statement: “Dylan Williams has today left Derby County to sign for Premier League club Chelsea.
“Williams made the step up to the first-team fold at the start of the current campaign, initially in the Carabao Cup, and went on to record eight appearances in all competitions.
“Everyone at Derby County would like to wish Dylan every success in the next chapter of his career at Chelsea and in the future.”
Chelsea are not having the best of seasons and do have a number of issues, so it would not be a surprise to see that Williams is the only player that makes a move to the Bridge, they have a world class squad.
There are only a few days left of the window, will Tuchel get anymore players?
Florent Malouda has told Chelsea that the signings of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe will imrpove the squad,.
There has been alot of speculation in the media over the past 12 months that Chelsea are interested in the two world class players, who are regarded as two of the most deadly attackers in the game.
Mbappe is seemingly leaving PSG at the end of the season on a free deal after failing to agree a new contract, with Chelsea and Real Madrid both ready to offer him a massive £500,000-a-week contract.
Haaland, whos is already one of the best in the world, will be on the market in the summer for just £64 million due to that clause in his contract, and with Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner both struggling to find the back of the net on a regular basis, there has been talk of a move for Haaland.
No, amid the speculation, Malouda has claimed that Haaland and Mbappe are the two players that could improve this current Chelsea squad: “I think [Chelsea] have already started preparing for next season with the new contract of Thiago Silva, looking to keep [Antonio] Rudiger, and thinking about replacements for players that might leave,” Malouda told William Hill.
“Every top team need to strengthen and look at the market to try and become the best team.
“I don’t think there’s too many players who will improve Chelsea right now, so they should wait for players like [Erling] Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe…those players are the type of players who will improve them”
Look, Both Haaland and Mbappe are world class players that will improve any squad so if Chelsea were able to get just one of them, it would be a special kind of signing. But considering they would demand around £500,000-a-week wages for the both of them, that is alot of money to splash.
New Chelsea signing Dylan Williams is understandably thrilled to make the leap from Championship strugglers to champions of Europe.
It has been no secret that Thomas Tuchel has been keen to add a new left-back to that Chelsea squad after the injury to Ben Chilwell, which will keep him out for the rest of the season.
And that has left to many reports that some of the games best left-backs could be making their way to the club, but with no deals happening, Chelsea have made the decision to bring Williams to the club.
And after sealing his move to Stamford Bridge, Williams took to social media to announce his delight at the move to the Champions of Europe, He wrote on Instagram: ‘Wow. I am absolutely delighted to have signed for one of the biggest clubs in the world.
‘Thankyou so much for everything the staff and players have done @dcfcofficial . I cannot wait to get started @chelseafc.’
Derby manager Wayne Rooney, who gave Williams his senior debut, said that he could not bring himself to stand in the teenager’s way of such an enormous move.
‘We have agreed on a fee with a Premier League club, still getting finalised as we speak, for Dylan Williams,’ Rooney said over the weekend.
‘It is one where I felt I couldn’t deny him the opportunity, so that is my decision, not an administrator’s decision.
‘It was my decision after speaking to the player, I felt I couldn’t deny a young lad an
