‘Thank God We’re Not Gonna Sign Him Permanently’ ‘This Guy Will Come Good’ Chelsea Fans React As It’s Revealed New Signing Could Cost 32M

‘Thank God We’re Not Gonna Sign Him Permanently’ ‘This Guy Will Come Good’ Chelsea Fans React As It’s Revealed New Signing Could Cost 32M

Chelsea could pay up to €37m (£32m) if they decided to sign Juventus midfielder Denis Zakaria on a permanent basis.

Juve have confirmed that the Blues will pay a €3m loan fee, with an additional €1m in bonuses. If Thomas Tuchel’s side do take up their option to buy the Swiss international at the end of the season, he will cost another €28m (plus €5m in bonuses).

While some believe that the club would be overpaying hugely if they do go ahead and sign Zakaria, others feel that the 25-year-old has what it takes to succeed at Stamford Bridge:

The fee included in the purchase option does seem a bit steep, considering Juventus paid only around €4.5m for the player back in January. Of course, he only had six months remaining on his contract at the time, but it is still an eightfold markup.

For Zakaria to justify the price, he will need to prove that he can perform well on a consistent basis, whilst solving some of Chelsea’s problems in the middle of the park.
