Chelsea splashes cash on top European defender, announces Fofana’s uncertain future
Chelsea FC has made a move to bolster its defense with the signing of Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile. The young left-footed center back is considered one of the best in Europe and has reportedly joined the club on a deal worth £34 million.
Badiashile expressed his excitement about the move, saying he is looking forward to playing for Chelsea and in the “best league in the world.” Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly and co-controlling owner Behdad Eghbali also expressed their confidence in Badiashile’s potential to become an important part of the team in the future.
Meanwhile, Chelsea coach Graham Potter has announced that the club is still waiting for clearance on new signing David Datro Fofana, and it is unclear when he will make his debut.
Potter also stated that the club is open to the possibility of sending Fofana out on loan. In addition, Chelsea has promised Shakhtar Donetsk that it will pay the necessary amount to sign winger Mudryk, who has been a target for Arsenal.
