OK, Diario claims that Mauricio Pochettino wants Real Madrid’s Nacho Fernandez to join Chelsea in the summer as Cesar Azpilicueta’s replacement. The 33-year-old Azplicueta is nearing the end of his career.
In contrast, Reece James has proven to be an extremely injury-prone player. James’ availability, despite his undeniable talent, is mostly a question.
Adding a right back to the Blues could be a smart move as Pochettino tries to rebuild the team after a disastrous season this year. According to the aforementioned report, Pochettino has turned his attention to Nacho.
Nacho is a genuine veteran in his situation. The Spaniard is as of now in the last phase of his Genuine Madrid contract and is yet to pen an augmentation. As a result, he was free to leave.
Nacho has played 318 games for Los Blancos since making his debut with the team in 2012. This season, the 33-year-old has participated in 43 games across all competitions, assisting the team in keeping 16 clean sheets.
Nacho could end up being a strong reinforcement or even a swap for Azpilicueta at Chelsea. He has the experience of playing in the greatest games during his time in the Spanish capital.
Genuine Madrid are keen on Chelsea’s Kai Havertz :
The savior of Real Madrid, number 9. Karim Benzema has been connected with a mid-year exit. As a result, the club is looking into the market for a possible Frenchman’s replacement.
According to the Spanish newspaper MARCA, Chelsea’s Kai Havertz has emerged as a potential target for Los Blancos. The value of the German is estimated to be £71 million. Havertz, on the other hand, had a subpar season for the Blues this season, scoring just nine goals and assisting once in 47 games across all competitions.
However, since joining the West Londoners from Bayer Leverkusen in 2020, the German has been a key player. In 139 games, he has contributed 15 assists and scored 32 goals. It’s possible that Real Madrid’s interest will become an interesting topic.
