£200,000-a-week World class Madrid star has made decision about joining Chelsea in June
Real Madrid star and Chelsea target Eder Militao has made a decision about his future with the Spanish giants
Fans were expecting some big things in the January transfer window as it was clear that Thomas Tuchel wanted to add some more quality to his squad. But despite all the rumours and all the speculation, The German didnt really get anyone in.
However, it is no secret that Tuchel will be in the market for a new defender in the transfer window and after seeing the club fail to get anybody in over January, he has already reportedly started requesting signings, and is keen on a move for Militao
Chelsea were also linked with a move for Militao three years ago but lost out to Madrid who met his buy-out clause at Porto.
After two underwhelming seasons at the Bernabeu, Militao has become an increasingly important member of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad, making over 30 appearances in all competitions this term.
Reports say Tuchel is a huge admirer of Militao and wants Chelsea to bring him to Stamford Bridge in the summer, particularly if contract rebels Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave.
But IcFootballnews has now learned that Militao has no intention of leaving Madrid at the end of the season and plans to stay at the club
It is also believed that he is open to the idea of even extending his stay at the club and signing a new contract, although the Spaniards have no intentions of plotting talks just yet
The January window has just closed and Tuchel must have been disappointed with the business that wasnt done. He has many months until the summer window now to find the right players to improve the squad.
Rudiger will be a big loss, but Militao is a classy defender that would thrive in the Premier League, he really could be a great buy for the club
So the news that he wants to stay will come as a massive blow, he really is a world class defender
