The world may be shutting down thanks to coronavirus, but that hasn’t stopped clubs doing transfer business all over the world – or at least being rumoured to.
Today on Football.Insider they claim to know that Chelsea are demanding Sassuolo buy them out of their buy-back clause on winger Jeremie Boga.
He’s had an excellent season on the wing in Serie A, and top clubs are sniffing around him. But smartly Chelsea have put in a clause that allows them to buy him for €15m this summer. That’s a lot more than the €3m they sold him for last summer, but also still far below his current value.
Presumably our arrangement will be to demand, say €20m for him. Otherwise, threaten to just activate is clause for €15m and then sell him on ourselves.
For once, we’re in a strong position here, and it’s nice to make some money on a young player who was let go on the cheap without having really been given a chance at Chelsea.
