Chelsea are reportedly prepared to pay £200m for the England midfield duo. Todd Boehly seems to be very keen on signing both Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice this transfer window. With N’Golo Kante and Jorginho being out of contract this season the Blues will be looking to add more players to their midfield. With Todd Boehly coming in the club and changing things up, he have revamped the club from top to bottom. He had opted to splash a lot of money to buy a lot of players over the summer transfer window.
Chelsea to pay £200m for England duo
According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are determined to sign the midfield duo in the transfer window. They are even willing to pay £200m for the players. Rice and Bellingham have already proved that they are a formidable duo for the opponents. The duo have amazing chemistry in the midfield at the England squad. So, there’s a chance that the duo could change the scenes at the Chelsea midfield.
The Blues interest in the youngsters
The Blues had an eye on Jude Bellingham for a long time now. They had followed him since his academy days at Birmingham City but had failed to act on their interest before the German team signed him. Meanwhile, Rice had topped the Blues’ interest since last year, but a deal with the Hammers had collapsed as Chelsea thought the valuation for the player of £ 100 million a bit ‘steep’. It definitely won’t be easy to sign both Rice and Bellingham in one transfer window and to the same team as well. Todd Boehly is optimistic enough to try and pull this off. If the deal goes through it will definitely be a record signing for Chelsea.
