Chelsea are prepared to sign Frenkie de Jong and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang assuming Barcelona permit the two players to leave this month.
Manchester United concurred a £72m expense to sign De Jong last month yet he is owed £17m in conceded wages and won’t consent to leave until he is paid. Barcelona believe that he should remain yet provided that he consents to accept a huge decrease in salary and acknowledge a £6m settlement for his conceded compensation.
Aubameyang moved to Barcelona on a free exchange from Arsenal in January. He has three years left on his agreement. In spite of the fact that Thomas Tuchel has been hesitant to discuss Aubameyang in open he is quick to work again with a 79 player objectives for him in two seasons at Borussia Dortmund.
Tuchel’s need is to sign a centre back and a forward this month and Chelsea are progressively certain that they can concur an arrangement to sign Leicester defender Wesley Fofana and are setting up a third offer. Leicester would rather not sell Fofana yet they would find it hard to turn down a deal near £80m.
