Chelsea ready to make another bid for ‘£180m’ Kayseredo → ‘Lee’s colleague’ veteran MF Plan B

Chelsea are considering a further bid for Moises Kaysedo, but have turned to Paris Saint-Germain’s veteran midfielder as an alternative.

“Liverpool have agreed a Premier League record fee of £110 million ($184 million) with Brighton for Caido,” global sports outlet The Athletic reported on Wednesday.

Despite his young age, Kaysedo has developed into a key player for Brighton in the Premier League. He has been a big part of the Seagulls’ surge in the Premier League. His work-rate and defensive prowess in the center of midfield attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool in the winter transfer window.

Chelsea were one of the favorites to sign him this summer. However, they struggled to negotiate a transfer fee. As some British media outlets reported, “Chelsea are leading the chase for Caicedo, but are struggling to negotiate with Brighton. Brighton value him at £120 million ($194.6 million). It is unlikely that Chelsea will pay that much for Caido, but they will have to pay at least £80 million ($129.6 million),” the report said, adding that there have been disagreements over the transfer fee between Brighton and Chelsea.

Brighton made a public bid for Caicedo in an attempt to avoid protracted negotiations, and it appears that Chelsea have since been pushed out as Liverpool have outbid them.

The Sun reports, “Brighton opened a bid for Caicedo on Thursday, with Liverpool the highest bidder, beating Chelsea. Chelsea’s offer was valued at £100 million ($168.2 million),” the report said, adding that Chelsea were outbid by Liverpool for Caido.

“There is no personal agreement yet, but we expect there to be a process on Friday, which will include a medical test plan,” he said, explaining that the only thing that remains is a personal agreement between Cisse and Liverpool.

However, Chelsea hasn’t given up on signing Caicedo just yet.

“Chelsea are ready to increase their offer for Caido after Liverpool agreed a deal with Brighton,” says the Guardian, “Chelsea are believed to be ready to bid more than £110m. The situation is unpredictable. We don’t know if Chelsea are too late, but it is known that Kaysedo prefers to move to Chelsea,” he said, explaining that they will make an additional bid because of Kaysedo’s preference.

It is believed that Kaysedo has not yet reached a personal agreement with Liverpool, despite the agreement between Liverpool and Brighton. The Reds are reportedly pushing for a medical and a meeting with the manager in an effort to get him on board quickly.

Until the Reds are fully convinced, Chelsea could have a chance if they increase their bid.

However, it’s not as if Chelsea aren’t considering a Plan B in case they fail to land the player.

“Chelsea have PSG’s superstar as Plan B,” the Sun reported on November 11.

“Chelsea are considering a Plan B after being robbed of Khedira by Liverpool. They had three bids for the player rejected. They made a fourth offer, but Liverpool, who wanted to replace Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, outbid Chelsea by more than £10 million ($16.8 billion).” The Sun reported on the bidding process for Kaysedo.

“According to reports in France, Pochettino has set his sights on a new midfield target. PSG midfielder Marco Verratti was recently told by the club to find a new team. Now, he is set to leave PSG and has recently received an offer from Saudi Arabia,” explaining that the club is targeting Verratti, who is expected to leave PSG.

According to French outlet RMC Sport, Verratti was recently informed that he was out of PSG’s plans alongside Neymar and Juan Bernat, leaving him to prepare for a move ahead of next season. Chelsea are keen to capitalize on this situation, with Doucoure adding that “Verratti wants to stay in Europe” and could be positive about a move to the Blues. 토토사이트

In addition to Chelsea, Atletico Madrid are also interested in Verratti, so Chelsea will have to act quickly to secure his signature.

In addition to Verratti, the Blues are also working on other midfield options. They are already close to signing U.S. national team captain Tyler Adams and are also looking to sign Southampton midfielder Romeo Rabia, who was relegated after the 2022/23 season.

With Chelsea’s top priority in midfield now in jeopardy following Liverpool’s surprise move for Caido, it will be interesting to see if Caido’s arrival is followed by the signing of Verratti to bolster the midfield next season.
