Reports suggest that Chelsea are in talks with AS Monaco player Benoît Badiashile over a transfer deal. Benoît Badiashile is the priority target for Chelsea. Chelsea are ready to spend around €40m to bring the player to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have apparently already made an offer of around €40m to the player. The player have also gained interest from other Premier League clubs, namely Manchester United. Hence Chelsea might have to fight with their Premier League rivals to acquire the France international’s signature. Although United have not sent a bid for Benoît Badiashile so far. Badiashile joined the Monaco senior team back in 2018. And have since been a regular starter at the club.
Benoît Badiashile have gained interest from Chelsea and Manchester United
With both Chelsea and Manchester United interested in Benoît Badiashile, Monaco seems open to parting ways with the player. The club is reportedly ready to part ways with him in January. It is mainly because the player’s contract expires in 2024. With one year left to his contract, the player’s price is bound to be less. Therefore, news outlets suggest that Monaco feels like this is the right time for the club to let the player go. Although the reports don’t suggest anything about whether the Monaco side have accepted or rejected the Chelsea offer. According to The Metro, Chelsea are growing confident in their quest to sign the player. Benoît Badiashile made his international debut for France in the UEFA Nation’s League earlier this year.
There is still no official agreement between both clubs. However, Chelsea is expected to complete the deal for the player. Chelsea was forced to look for an alternative due to RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol’s rising price. Now the Frenchman have turned into a top-priority signing for Chelsea. Chelsea would like to sign the deal with the player as soon as possible.
