Chelsea ready to sign €30m rated Barcelona wonderkid

CHELSEA have continued to be linked with signing Barcelona star boy as Tuchel keen on boosting his squad ahead of the new year.

Over the course of the last few years, Barcelona have been infamous for their poor decision making in the transfer market. Too often they made over expensive transfers for players who did not fit their tactical profile.

With Sergino Dest, Barca finally seemed to be on the right track, but as per a report relayed by Daily Mail, Chelsea are interested in acquiring his services for €30 Million.

Dest was expected to be among Barcelona’s most important players this season, despite the departure of Ronald Koeman. Having arrived from Ajax Amsterdam, a club with similar values and playing style, perhaps no better move could have been made by the Catalan club. This season he has already recorded three assists, however the club wants more than just numbers.

Well, fairly recently Xavi Hernandez stated that some players simply do not understand what he wants in his style. It is believed that given his relative inexperience in first team football at Barca or Ajax, Dest does not have what is required to succeed. For this Xavi Hernandez believes parting ways would be the best move going forward.

Chelsea are building a team and attempting to make it future proof. As such the youth of Sergino Dest could be pivotal, as he additionally has the potential to be among the world’s best.

The European champions are not alone in their endeavours. Bayern Munich, a club which wanted to buy him as recently as 2020 are also hot on his tail.

Dest has struggled to stamp his ground fully at Barcelona. Granted he is a young footballer, he essentially had the whole right-back spot to himself.

Nevertheless through injury and inconsistency, he at times fell to third in the pecking order behind a central midfielder and centre back no less. As such, they feel that the best thing would be to part ways with him and seek the services of anotherright-back soon enough.

So far the name of Noussair Mazraoui has been mentioned. The Moroccan has been touted as a possible replacement and a number believe that he would be an upgrade to his American counterpart.

Further, this also gives Joan Laporta and co. have a chance to make a significant profit. Mazraoui is available for free in June 2022 and those €30 million (or more) could go a long way in improving the team.
