Gvardiol latest, Rudiger JOINS Real Madrid, Chelsea ‘confident of £50m Kounde deal’ – latest news

    Morning, Chelsea fans

    The Blues are rated favourites for Jules Kounde – but face losing up to four defenders to Barcelona.

    Sevilla’s France centre-back Kounde, 23. is also wanted by Arsenal.

    But Chelsea’s need is greater – along with their bargaining position after Todd Boehly’s £4.25billion takeover.

    Meanwhile, Real Madrid are in pole position for Antonio Rudiger.

    Barca and Juventus, though, are also keen on the out-of-contract central defender.

    Barcelona are still being linked even more strongly to Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.

    That, however, means the Blues could have leverage for their interest in Barca’s USA full-back Sergino Dest.

    Atletico Madrid transfer guru Andrea Berti is tipped to replace the 47-year-old.
