Report: Chelsea finalising €31m deal for Real Madrid's Danilo

14 Julio 2017

Premier League holders Chelsea have finalised a transfer fee to sign Real Madrid full-back Danilo, Spanish outlet Marca claims.

The player is expected to sign for £31million before they head out to the Far East.

NAIJ.com understands Tiemoue Bakayoko will join the club also with the minor issue of his knee surgery holding up a deal.

Antonio Conte has already signed Antonio Rudiger and Willy Caballero for the new campaign and is hoping to add a few more faces in the coming week. His stats don't make for incredible reading, as his aerial success rate (54.55%) also falls under the average posted by the two Chelsea centre-backs.

Last summer, Chelsea attempted and failed to pry Lukaku away from Goodison Park, as a bid of £57m was deemed insufficient to persuade the Toffees to sell.

According to Marca h/t The Star, the Blues have secured £31.2m agreement with Los Blancos for Danilo, who could take up the right wing-back duties from Victor Moses next season.

After being a cornerstone in Conte's back-line last time around, it seems unlikely that the Nigerian would be willing to sit on the bench.

Of course, the penny has finally dropped in the Stamford Bridge boardroom that it might be prudent to insert buy-back clauses into the contracts of the myriad youngsters the club churns through as the recent sales contracts of Bertrand Traore to Lyon and Nathan Ake to Bournemouth testify.
