After the arrival of Xavi Hernandez to the culé bench, different footballers of the Koeman era were no longer taken into account this season, being Sergiño Dest one of them. The American footballer is not to the liking of the Blaugrana coach, so the board is already working on his departure in the next transfer market. Now, it has been learned that one of the teams interested in taking over the services of the defender is the Chelsea from Thomas tuchel.
The North American side is one of those who are included in the list of possible departures from the Camp Nou, while the ‘blues’ need a reinforcement on the right side of the rear. According to the information provided by ‘Daily express‘, the operation is to the liking of both parties.
They also ensure that the English cast is willing to pay 30 million euros to sign Dest in this winter market. The current situation of the culé team, which needs money to add Ferran Torres, requires operations like this, although it is unknown if this amount is the one that the Blaugrana will ask for the transfer of the American.
However, at Stamford Bridge they want to anticipate a more than possible departure from César Azpilicueta. Given this, only Reece James would remain on the right side, so Thomas Tuchel wants to cover the defender’s back with a replacement of guarantees.
It should be noted that Sergiño Dest has not left bad games as a culé footballer, but he has not been able to achieve that continuity necessary to become an indisputable element. Koeman, on some occasions, used the player as a winger, but Xavi has less confidence in him. And as if that were not enough, the injuries have ended up complicating a path that seems to come to an end at the Camp Nou.
Chelsea is not the only interested team
Despite the fact that the English team is the one that currently generates the most noise, it is also known that Arsenal and Bayern Munich closely follow the situation of the full-back. The Bavarians gain greater strength by having been the bone of contention to decide their destination before their arrival at Barcelona.
In addition, Manchester City is another of the clubs that is interested in taking over the signing of the American. According to ESPN, the Premier League team, led by Pep Guardiola, wants to add reinforcements for 2022, to continue staying at the top of the local tournament.
