Fabrizio Romano: Chelsea Have Verbal Agreement For Second Summer Signing


It looks like Chelsea have their second signing of the summer.

It’s not the most exciting deal, but it’s a move nonetheless, and one apparently agreed by Todd Boehly himself.

Fabrizio Romano is tonight reporting that Chelsea have a “verbal agreement” with Chicago Fire for Gabriel Slonina, a player they were close to signing in January.

There are more details about the move now – it will be £10m, and the goalkeeper will stay on loan at Chicago Fire. That’s another new league to follow with the loan army right away, given their season is going on.

The teenage goalkeeper is one of the brightest talents in MLS, and it seems like the previous scouting team’s advice on his abilities have been heeded by the new ownership.

We’re set between the stick with Edouard Mendy in place for years potentially, but competition is never bad. This might be a deal that takes a few years to come good.
