The FC Barcelona and Chelsea will star one of the biggest rivalries during this market of signings. In spite of his economic limitations, the Barcelona square aims to make a 'revolution' in his staff to go back to compete by all the titles during the following course. Thus, the Catalans expect 'fish' in London, where in addition to incorporating to Andreas Christensen like free agent, have to Marcos Alonso and César Azpilicueta like big aims.

By his part, Thomas Tuchel wants to reinforce the offensive of his group and would have put looks it in Raphinha for 'apuntalar' the bands in attack. The Brazilian, that is one of the favourites to strengthen the forward in Can Barça, would be near to dress the T-shirt 'blue' after the 'pensionados' have arrived to an agreement with the Leeds United to concretise the traspaso of the footballer, which would close in a figure that round the 60 million pounds.

However, from the offices of Stamford Bridge do not pretend to detain would scheme it after the more than likely landing of the '10' of Elland Road and would go back to the 'load' to by an old aim of the entity. And it is that with the losses so much of Antonio Rüdiger as of the already mentioned Christensen in hands of the two 'giant' Spanish, Chelsea has signalled to Joules Koundé like the main candidate to suplir the drops of both central.

The French defender has been in the 'diary' of the ones of Tuchel from the window veraniega past when they tried to carry it to his rows, included, having arriving to an agreement with the player by 5 seasons. Nevertheless, the 50 million euros offered by the londinenses did not fulfil the requirements of the Seville and the traspaso 'fell'. Now, and after concretising the sale of the club, the 'blues', with Todd Boehly in command, have gone back with strength to by the defender and already would be in conversations with the nervionenses, as it has informed the edition sevillana of 'ABC'.

A hard 'reverse' for the Barça

The presence of Chelsea in the negotiations represents a big obstacle for the blaugranas, since it is almost impossible that these can compete with the financial muscle of the 'blues'. The Seville wants to perceive a figure that oscillate between the 60 and 65 million euros ahead, sum to which the Barça can not arrive without activating the crowbars. Besides, from the Sánchez-Pizjuán prefer that the player go to England before joining to a direct rival, by what the operation finish to put 'slope up' for the culés.
