Big news for Tuchel and Chelsea deal after £45 million rated Brazilian decides he wants to leave Madrid
Reports have claimed that long-term Chelsea target Eder Militao has decided that he wants to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Even though Thomas Tuchel has done a wonderful job since he took over the club just a few months ago, the German boss knows that he needs to delve into that transfer kitty in the transfer window and add a new defender to the squad, with Militao a possible target.
Militao has been restricted to just 30 appearances across all competitions for Madrid to date, and only has one goal to his name as he struggles to make an impact on that Spanish side.
WHAT IS THE LATEST?
Goal has learned that, although Militao has yet to completely give up on his ambitions with Madrid, he is worried that a lack of regular minutes could affect his chances of featuring for Brazil at the World Cup in 2022, and the former Porto star also wants to play for his country at this summer’s Copa America, and would be prepared to join another team in order to make Tite’s final squad.
The Spanish champions are aware that Militao is attracting interest from abroad and have moved to reassure him over his position at the club.
Would he be a good fit for Chelsea?
There is no doubt that Militao is a very good player that can go on to become one of the very best defenders in the game, so the fact that he has not been able to make the impact that he would have liked is a shock.
If he does leave Madrid in the summer, then we firmly believe that a move to Chelsea would be a very wise move to make. They are going to be serious contenders next season.
