Chelsea requires at least two top centre-backs this summer.
Chelsea is considering a swap deal for Ruben Loftus Cheek and Milan Skriniar.
Club’s new owner Todd Boehly is set to usher top-class signings at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are plotting a potential swap deal involving Ruben Loftus Cheek and Milan Skriniar.
The Slovak centre-back is a towering presence at the back something that Thomas Tuchel will highly appreciate following the departure of Antonio Rudiger to Real Madrid. Skriniar has been impressive in Inter’s defence since joining from Sampdoria in 2017.
The Serie A club have braced themselves for big changes this summer and owing to the club’s financial difficulties, few top names may be out the door provided the right offer arrives.
As per reports of Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Daily Mail), the solution to reaching an agreement for Lukaku’s return to Inter, who the club are interested in bringing back, involves the sale of Skriniar to the Premier League giants.
Skriniar has made 215 appearances for the Nerazzurri and was an important part under Antonio Conte. He has also helped Inter to win Coppa Italia and Supercoppa.
The Blues requires at least two top centre-backs this summer. Thomas Tuchel will surely look for the potential moves.
