Christopher Nkunku was seen back at the training ground ahead of the Chelsea transfer
The future Chelsea forward is getting in some action after his unfortunate injury. RB Leipzig have released new pictures of Christopher Nkunku training at the club grounds. Therefore it could be assumed that the player is close to making a return. Chelsea have already a deal lined up for him to sign. It was a shame that the Blues could not sign him this January. But Chelsea are signing a loan deal for Joao Felix as a possible alternative for the Belgian. Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Chelsea have reached a verbal agreement for the loan move. Some fans though have been wondering how this loan move could affect Christopher Nkunku’s transfer as they both play for the same position. Romano have commented,
“João Félix deal will not have any impact on Christopher Nkunku move. Chelsea have already sealed the agreement with Leipzig for more than €60m fee”
He further added,
“Nkunku will become Chelsea player in July, all done and signed also on player side as revealed in December.”
Chelsea fans would be delighted to know that this loan move will not affect the arrival of Christopher Nkunku. The club have already sealed a deal with Leipzig for the player. Chelsea also does not have a buy option for Joao Felix, as he had to extend his contract with Atletico Madrid till 2027.
