Chelsea news includes fan reaction to news that highly-rated central defender Marc Guehi is set to become the latest player sold in the summer transfer window.
Chelsea fans have been reacting to reports that the club are poised to announce the sale of Marc Guehi.
As first reported by The Athletic, the central defender – who spent last season on loan in the Championship with Swansea City – is nearing a move to London rivals Crystal Palace.
And football.london understands Chelsea have accepted a significant offer from the Eagles for the England Under-21 international, whose move is expected to be completed in the next 48 hours.
Guehi is expected to undergo a medical ahead of signing a five-year deal with Palace at Selhurst Park where he will be managed by Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.
As expected, this deal has sparked a massive reaction from Chelsea fans on social media.
On one side, some are demanding that the club insert a buy-back clause into the deal which is a sign that many believe in Guehi’s ability and that he can still lead the backline in the future.
Although, others are excited at what selling the defender could mean.
With Erling Haaland still being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, the club need to raise funds in order to meet Borussia Dortmund’s reported £150m asking price.
So, there’s a theory that selling Guehi will help fund a deal for Haaland this summer.
