Mercato: Chelsea would have an agreement for Wesley Fofana, who could become the most expensive defender in history

Wesley Fofana is likely to remember this summer of 2022 for a long time. Long courted by Chelsea, whom he always wanted to join, the Leicester defender is about to sign there after weeks of waiting. And for an amount that could be record for a defender. According to information from several British media, as well as from L’Equipe, the transfer fee is 82.5 million euros.

If we add the various bonuses to this sum, Fofana could exceed Harry Maguire, recruited in 2019 by Manchester United for 90 million euros by Manchester United. The former St├ęphanois would therefore become the most expensive defender in the history of football. Under contract until 2027 with the Foxes, the one who will turn 22 next December will remember this summer transfer window for a long time.

For the time being, neither of the two clubs has confirmed this agreement. Even if the outcome of this soap opera no longer really seems to be in doubt…
