Chelsea’s £30million January transfer deal called off


According to German publication Bild, Chelsea have been told to forget about signing Niklas Sule from Hoffenheim, despite ready to offer the big bucks.

The Blues have been linked with a swoop for the £30million-rated centre-back but the Bundesliga outfit have categorically dismissed a January sale.

The German club’s sporting director Alexander Rosen was asked about a potential winter deal for Sule. Rosen said: “I can definitely exclude that.” and virtually ended Chelsea’s hopes of bringing a powerful defender to Samford Bridge this season.

What next for Chelsea?

Given the crazy money (£52million) from Oscar’s sale to China is yet to be spent, I fully expect Chelsea to dominate the January transfer market and sign at least 2 players ( A defender and a midfielder) to further improve their chances of winning the league title this season.
