‘It’s Not 2017 Anymore’ ‘Not A Good Option At All’ Fans Dismiss Claim That Chelsea Have Made Enquiry For £44m Rated Defender

Chelsea have enquired about Barcelona defender Samuel Umititi, according to reports. The Frenchman is available for €50m (£44m) and the Blues are believed to have contacted the player’s agent ahead of a possible bid.

Supporters on Twitter are sceptical about the Blues’ interest, and most would prefer the London club to steer clear of the 26-year-old:

It is not beyond the realms of possibility that Chelsea contacted Umtiti’s agent as it does appear they are looking for a left-sided centre-half.

Multiple reports have suggested that the Blues have made a bid for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, who is also a left-footed centre-back, and it could be the case that Frank Lampard’s side looked at Umtiti before making a bid for the Brazilian instead.

In any case, a move for another centre-half this summer is likely, with Chelsea having conceded 39 goals in 29 league games this season, which is only the ninth-best defensive record in the division.
