Mercato / More than 80 million euros: Wesley Fofana signs for Chelsea

Chelsea’s turn. The day after Antony’s arrival at Manchester United for nearly 100 million euros, the Blues also increased the counters to formalize the arrival of Wesley Fofana. The Frenchman, trained in Saint-Etienne, signed up with the London club for … seven years. The amount of the operation has not been disclosed but it would vary between 82 and 90 million euros, according to the sources.

Only 21 years old, Fofana continues his express progress. Recruited by Leicester in 2020 after having played only twenty matches in Ligue 1 with the Greens, the native of Marseille quickly established himself among the Premier League references in his position. The broken leg he suffered just a year ago has not affected his level or his rating, as he has now become one of the most expensive defenders in history.

With the former Stéphanois, Chelsea continues the renewal of its defensive sector since Kalidou Koulibaly and the side Marc Cucurella have already landed this summer. The Blues may not have finished their shopping since Josko Gvardiol would also be targeted by the London management, just like Pierre-Emerick Aumbameyang.
